I live in a very quiet coastal area. And in Summer, heat and humidity can be oppressive.

I have a Colt Combat Commander in 9mm. It's one of among several M1911's of mine that run the gamut of .22, .38 Super, 10mm and all the usual .45 barrel lengths of 3", 4.25", 5".

I've seen similar.
And have watched - they DO have a target. It's the berm.

I'd been wanting a Super for quite some time, but it was a little hard to justify, since my 1911's are numerous in .22, 9mm, 10mm and all the short-to-long .45 ACP's.
