This is from a recent post. I had the same question---it was glad to see he did as well.

Nice gun.

l admit that I still don't really understand why folks order reduced form-factor 1911s (to make them shorter -- i.e optimized for CCW/defensive use) and then go and put magwells on them (which makes them longer -- i.e. optimized for range games/competition), but Professionals definitely strike a nice balance in the lineup. Hard to really get one wrong.

Colt 1911A1 (US Army '41) Wilson Combat: Tactical Supergrade .45, Turnbull CQB .45, Paul Howe .223, Recon Tactical .308; Beretta BrigTac 9mm; PX4 Storm 9mm; CX4 Storm Carbine; Kimber Super Carry Ultra Plus .45, Custom TL II 10mm; Sig P938 9mm; Springfield Armory Range Officer 9mm; Dan Wesson PM-C .38 Super; Harley Street Glide.
