    My primary CCW is my GLOCK Model 19... Although i just bought a Kimber Compact Stainless and she shoots like a dream... Waiting on my holster to come in for it...

    It shot sooooooooo smooth... Although I don't like the factory all black sights...

    I'll be upgrading them to some Meprolight night sights sometime in the near future...

    I've followed the long and winding road, starting with 1911s in the Army (in the dim, dark recesses of history), owned and shot lots and lots of different handguns, and ended up back with the 1911 as my favorite of them all.

    For CCW, I usually carry my Ultra CDP II as primary, although when my Tucker HF1 for my Desert Warrior comes in, I'll probably carry that one some of the time, too. My Kimbers have been altogether reliable. I currently load Winchester Ranger SXT 230gr for defensive rounds. They're an especially good value at about $17/box of 50.

    Get a top-of-the-line holster and gun belt! Brommeland, Sparks, Tucker, Garrity, Larsen, Alessi -- there are a number of great craftsmen that sit at the pinnacle of the art. Don't skimp on an item that will make such a huge difference in your ability to carry effectively.

    Welcome to the 1911 club. Watch out, bank account!
