TRP In-Service training

I know I've said it before, but my stainless TRP is awesome! Last week I was at police in-service training and part of it included range time(Yes! Free ammo!). We put about 200 rds down range of the Federal 155 frangible stuff as it is a "green" range. Not a bobble even though other brands of guns choked often.
Accuracy was fine, earning my TRP top scores, but the ammo was awful in that it made the inside of my TRP look like it had been field stripped in the middle of the desert. Other guns on the line included a Springfield XD, 2 S&W M&P's, and the rest Glocks. The XD and my TRP were the only .45's, the majority were .40's with about 8 shooting 9mm.
My TRP never choked once and the only points dropped were from shooter error.

Couldn't be happier with my TRP!

Glad to hear that your TRP performed the way it was designed to do.

You're Fortunate that your agency allows 1911s.

Cocked and locked was not an option for my department!

Cheers,

It's been said often and you are the proof that TRP stands for The Right Pistol.

Sounds like a great fit for you.

I love the way the TRP is set up....love the magwell and 20 lpi. Wish all my 1911 pistols were thusly configured.

Not unusual that your 1911 outshot all the Tupperware. It would be unusual if that did not happen.

All my 1911s are in .45acp. Why? Because no one makes one in .46cal.--Me
The 9mm is a SD cartridge fit only for women and Europeans--Me

I have a Springfield TRP SS, Nice 1911 for range and to show up since it is beautiful. Period. It is extremely heavy for carry, (over 3 pounds full loaded ) that is crazy. TRP full load is an hydraulic hammer good for nothing ! I am sorry. That heavy weight on you side every day can affect your health after many years.

I have found the weight of my TRP not to be too big of an issue. I use a carry designed gun belt and an IWB holster for off-duty carry. But you are right, it is a heavy gun! To me, though, it's shootability makes up for all it's shortcomings. Of course, as they say, yvmv!

A loaded Glock 17 weighs ~2lbs. That one extra pound isn't going to kill you. I've carried a TRP or other full size 1911 daily for years. A good holster and good gun belt make all the difference.

That's awesome. Not surprised to hear Springfield turned out yet another fine TRP.

The TRP has been one of my favorite pistols. It is the standard I which I compare other pistols.

Most men aren't bothered by carrying or shooting a "heavy" pistol.

Well, I'm 62 and have been carrying a 1911 for 40 years. My health is just fine. It's not a pistol for wimps.

Likewise, at almost age 64.
