Hi from central florida!
Hi im a trucker living in central Florida. Married with 3 dogs and a mean old bird. Here is my question. I have been trying to determine which of these pistols is better, Colt Commander S70 .45 ACP or Colt Government S70 .45 ACP or Springfield Armory 1911 A1 45 ACP. Could use some helpful info as to which is best. It will be a Carry weapon for my wife. She currently carries a .38. Also what is the best ammo to use in these guns ? Federal EFMJ or HST or Hydrashok ? I own no pistols but do have 2 revolvers S&W .357 mag Highway Patrolman and a S&W police special .38 . Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!
I am sure you will hear more about 1911s than you may wish to know.
The only drawback I see for your wife carrying any of the three you mention is the weight of the pistols. 1911s are not known to be lightweight, or particularly small in size.

Welcome from Michigan!
I don't own any of those models...but from what I've read over the years...you can't go wrong with any of them.

Greetings and welcome just across the river in Viera. If you are trying to decide on a new purchase, I recommend heading to a local range (I use the one at the Police Hall of Fame in Titusville), and rent some of their guns. That was what I did before transitioning from my revolvers (same models as yours) to my newest EDC pistols. My wife also rented before deciding on her Sig Sauer P238. Maybe I'll see you at the range.
