Own and carry both the Gov't Model and Combat Commander. Just Love that Commander, but the 5" is one Bad Ass Gun. I carry the Commander due to its size / Bbl. lenghth, also had the ejection port lowered and trigger work.....it's nice.
My first center fire semi auto was a XD40SC. I sold it and tried a M&P 9mm which I liked and shot better than the XD and then picked up a CZ Compact 9mm and sold the M&P. After owning several semi-autos looking for the pistol that was best for me, I ended up with 1911's.
I had a Springfield LW Champion and full size loaded but sold both and bought a D.W. CBOB (and a STI 9mm Trojan and Kimber UC ll). I do like the commander sized pistols and found that I shoot the 1911 platform the best. Of the three, the CBOB is probably my favorite but I shoot the Trojan 9mm more so my lead supply will last much longer. The Trojan is my plate shooting gun.
Like the previous poster said, everyone should own at least one 1911.:smile:
