As far as which one is preferable to shoot? The Detective Special, no doubt about it. For me, they feel closer to shooting a K-Frame Smith (i.e. 65/66) than a J-Frame(i.e. 640). They hold six...

For what it's worth, I've carried in both holsters, and here's my take. The VM2 might be slightly more comfortable, as it's thinner than the SS2, since the belt loops are offset from the holster...

I agree with Crazy Horse. I can tell you from personal experience that I put probably five thousand rounds down range in the first year I got back into shooting. My grip/stance/etc was worthless,...

At the Range

Well, I went out and shot it today. My dad came along to shoot his new (to him) Nowlin Match Classic and brought his Les Baer Concept VIII.

The Dave Stagg 1991 shot perfectly. I put around 250...

A view of the left rear.. I like how the edges don't *appear* to be broken much, but they're smooth to the touch. No bar-of-soap look.

Oh yeah. He bobbed the hammer, replaced the trigger,...

Here's a side view of the pistol. Yes, the lighting sucks, and you're right.. I shouldn't be allowed near a camera.

It was a borrowed camera, I was in a hurry, and I have no idea what I'm doing. ...

My new Dave Stagg NRM Colt

I just got my 5" NRM Colt back from Dave Stagg. I was looking for a fairly simple carry pistol, and what I got was a fairly simple carry pistol that's absolutely beautiful.

That looks like a MKIII Hi-Power with black Navidrex grips. You can get the grips from Brownells, and they're quite nice.

I haven't played with the Pointman series, only the newer DW Patriot series.

Re: 1911 Newbie Advise...Colt vs. Wesson

To preface my response here, I've owned both the DW Patriot expert and a 5" NRM Colt 1991 in the last year.

Features: My DW Patriot definitely beat the 1991 in add-on features. Beavertail,...
