    I just really like the para 12.45 LDA .... better.
    I also own sorta-kinda 1911A S/A... its a Colt Mustang. Which is about as sweet as it gets for a smaller pistol.

    Personally, I've always felt the .45 had more torque than actual recoil. The 9mm kicks up and a little back, the .45 "shoves" back and twists.

    Actually the Para, is a “All Canadian gun” as it is made in Ontario. I just was handling one last week, very nice, but I am not sure if I like the LDA trigger, just felt weird to me, but haven’t had a chance to shoot one yet. Plus i don't like not being able to cock the gun with my thumb. I am a DA guy through and through. Although I have a soft spot for the Hi-power, which I used in the Army.

    I used to own nothing but 9MM untill one day a buddy insisted I try his Ruger .45. It was a horrible feeling hunk of ugly metal, but I walked away intrigued.
    So I head over to the range with my regular shooting buddy and we rented a Kimber Ultra Compact.
    I've not been right since and that was like 3 yrs. ago.
    Since then I own and carry nothing but 1911s a Sig GSR, SA LCC and a Colt Defender. My buddy bught a Kimber Target II and dumped his Sig 228 into the furthest back area of his safe.

    .45 is easy to shoot, soft in the hand and doesn't have the sharp recoil impulse of a 9MM.
    When ever I get the chance I try to do the favor of converting some other clueless 9MM victim. :)
