I like my G20 very much...but a 1911 still fits my hand so much better.
Also when backpacking, I think cocked and locked has some advantages. Once you make camp, you can just stuff it in your waistband w/o always having to have some sort of rigid guard around the trigger.
Anyone using a 10mm 1911 and thoughts or opinions about them?
I am not so sure I like the idea of a 1911 being stuffed into a waistband; I have found a few thumb safety levers in the off-safe position, over time, and that is while using holsters that do not shroud the thumb safety lever. True, the grip safety should be doing its job, but I am glad to have the trigger guard covered.
A 1911 with a high-cut front strap and undercut trigger guard fits my hand better than a Glock, too, but I am open-minded regarding Glock pistols. (No radical undercuts with 1911 frames; something like Les Baer frames is fine.)
I had a G29, and liked the concept, but not the fit. I am tempted to try a Short Frame G29, which seems to fit my hands better. (At the time I sold my G29, it was not yet clear my chief would let me qual with a Glock that had a significant grip reduction, as "modifications" were generally frowned upon. I am expected to qual with any handgun I will carry in public during personal time, and might use to defend myself or others.)
I reading/following this thread for personal interest. I use both 9mm Glock and .45 ACP 1911 pistols, at this time, so am open-minded regarding the 10mm options. I tend to like full-sized all-steel 1911 pistols, having sworn-off buying any smaller 1911 since the Nineties.
SE Texas bears are extemely shy and rare, and not large, so I have not thought seriously about "bear" guns, in the past, but retirement is near, and we plan to travel quite a bit, soon, where large mammals walk the earth.
