You guys caused this,

I was against owing a 1911 in 9mm but you guys said itís the cheaper ammo.

Ok who offers a 1911 in 9mm something affordable like a 5Ē usgi model?

Making my list.

Springfields Range Officer in 9mm is nice.

I have a Springfield Stainless 1911 in 9mm and it's a sweet shooter.

A lot of people complain about Kimbers but my 5" Kimber 9mm 1911 has been great. I think the ramped barrel on "almost" all 9mm 1911's is a big deal solving a problem that some 1911's have with JHP's. I would not buy a 9mm 1911 that did not have a ramped barrel.

You "need one. No doubt about it.

An Colt Series 70 Government Model in 9mm lives here. I don't carry it and don't care about the economy of shooting 9mm, but the pistol sure is a lot of fun at the range and for plinking.

Cheaper ammo...meh. A 1911 belongs in 45 acp.

Now a 2011 is a different story.

A 1911 is a .45 caliber! 9mm is for plastic guns IMHO

Depending on your price point, I would go with the RIA or the SA RO...Both are quality and both have good customer service, if you ever need to use it...I have the SA RO in 9mm and love it...

Those that think .45acp is the only acceptable 1911 should try grilled chicken. Granted it's not fried chicken, but you may be around longer to grace us with your skewed and unsolicited opinions. There's another option, skewered chicken kabobs...They are delicious, and can be eaten one-handed while formulating posts...

1911 crazy: "You guys caused this"

I've had my eyes opened a few times by posts on this forum as well. Overall I'd say it was in a good way.

+1 on the 9mm Range Officer. I have a stainless one and love it.

9x19 is hotter than .38 Colt and not as super as .38 Super.

Colt introduced the 9x19 chambering in the Commander in 1950, almost seventy years ago.

Oh, but they are solicited opinions, itís a forum. You can diet on what you like, but Iím gonna feed my 1911 fried chicken. The grease keeps it lubed. Grilled causes stove pipes.......kabobs are just stupid.
