I've read a recent post where the LAPD is having problems with issued SIS pistols as well.
I'm no 1911 expert by far but there are plenty of other brands out there for SWAT or line officers.,
DAN WESSON SPECIALIST> any MIM?
The 230 gr. Gold Dot would be an ideal load or a 5 inch 1911.
It Would be my choice (but in Double Tap mode ) for any 1911 that I'd carry.
The 230 BD is pretty wicked looking, as it's just shy of a +p rating, and should perform as well as any .45 load can on the streets.
I do hope that dept. can get some good 1911s in those holsters.
