    S+W 1911-ES ammo question

    Hi 'y'all. I've had my 1911ES for about a year now and am considering perking up my SD ammo selection to +P.

    It's a fine running pistol IMHO, and the only changes I've made is bumping up the recoil spring a notch and having the slide ceracoated because, frankly, I just don't like two-tone guns.

    Anyhoo, can I run +P as a defense -- not practice -- ammo without breaking the alloy frame? I'd like to test with at least 50-100 rounds before I carry the +P.
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Smith will say "NO".

    I have an ES and have run +P. I found it to be a little bit snappy, as I'm so used to shooting thousands of rounds of standard pressure.

    I like to carry close to what I shoot for practice.
