    That's a bunch of 1911s, what are the 10 makes and models you've bought since October?

    Well, if she's ever looking for a friend, send he to my wife. She has her 642 and that's all she wants. She could use a little feminine convincing.

    Why do you think that there are fish in the Kimber? Let's say for argument's sake that there are fish in that Kimber...is shooting the best way to get them out? Wouldn't using a very small fishing pole or net be a neater and less smelly approach?

    And for the OP....I don't think that there's a wrong answer.

    I have 3 Sigs and would definitely get another (or a few) more. I have a 1911 Nightmare carry. The ONLY caveat with Sig 1911s is they decided to be different and built the slide slightly more square. Your Sig may not fit any of the leather you have for your other 1911s. I have a hybrid Old Faithful holster for mine and it fits beautifully, but when I checked out a few at the LGS the standard 1911 holsters did not fit the Sig.

    Maybe a leather one will eventually get broken in? Maybe judicious application of heat could make a Kydex fit? I do not know and have not tried.

    The Sig was my first 1911 so I can't really compare. I've fired a few rounds through an S&W and a Kimber, but not enough to have a very well-formed opinion. However, the Sig is sweet to shoot, so I'm happy.

    Apparently you've never had fish in your bbl. You sir, have no clue what you are talking about. Leave the fish ammo to us professionals.

    Not familiar with the Scorpion, but did own a RCS. Never had any problems with it. I'll cast my vote for the Sig.

    since SIG does not make a true "1911", the choice is easy.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    If you actually own that many 1911's, I doubt anyone on this forum has more experience than you, in order to offer said advice.

    I carry a Kimber Ultra Raptor as my primary carry weapon, and have for a number of years. Yeah they have some issues (bad finish particularly), but I still love mine. If I were going to buy another, I'd send it off to Wally Birdsong and Associates and have the Black T treatment before I holstered it the first time. Good enough for our SEAL teams, it's good enough for me.

    Good luck with #30. LOL Be Safe.

    I shot, fired examined Wilson, Kimber and others for a long while. I bought the sig tacops 1911 under 1K for a third the cost of the others I was considering. It's been the best 1911 I've ever fired or owned. The support from Sig is very good and as I have worked on the staff at local and state matches I've watched every level and brand of gun malfunction while my Sig has performed with remarkable consistency and no malfunctions. I shoot entire IDPA and USPSA matches with not one single fail to feed, eject, jam or anything. Sure I can MAKE the gun malfunction shooting crappy ammo or weak loads but as long as the ammo is reasonably good and loaded to at least 730fps or greater it's stone cold reliable, barrel locks in tight as hell and the accuracy gets comments from other competitors and the RO/SOs. I also practice every week with about 200-400 rounds plus about 600 per month in matches or events. I've put about 20K rounds through the Sig 1911 and the finish has not even worn off the slide rails yet. It basically still looks like a new gun. Not even holster wear and I've dry fired and dry holster practiced thousands of times. No idiot scratch on the frame and I'm not even careful when assembling. The finish is far superior to the Kimber black finish. Buy 3 sigs instead of one Kimber, shoot with pride. Carry it with confidence, own it with the knowledge you made a smart choice.
