This is a discussion on How many have 9mm 1911's? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; A 1911 in 9mm ??? ~ What's that? Oh...you mean like one of those imitation Colt 1911s that will only shoot those little tiny .380 ...
Yes, for competition/target shooting
Yes, for carry
Yes, just to have/collect
Yes, for another reason
No, as Browning intended

The 1911 in 9mm makes a lot of sense.
Up until recently 50 rds. of Monarch 115 gr ball
sold for $5 a box at Academy. It makes an excellent
range load. For defense you can find deals on bulk
Speer Gold Dot 124 gr +P for around $10 a box.
My one and only 1911 for years was a custom Colt
Gov't. in .38 Super. Ammo was hard to find and expensive, handloading was the only way to go.
Most 9mm +P and +P+ meet or exceed the most
commonly available Super load - Winchester Silver Tip 125 GR.
Here are my two primary pistols used for home and carry. S.A. target loaded and Kimber Carry Pro.
Both are reliable, accurate, and just feel good!
If you need something more powerful for hunting
or woods protection then get a 10mm.
no 9mm, but YES in .38sup. 1911 in .38sup is the best shooter that I own. It's pretty much like firing a laser.
Yes factory ammo is tough to come by and pricey. But it realoads cheaply enough!!
