226 if you love your 229.Yeah, I've seen that, but I hate 1911's. Well, I think they are good, like the M4 in terms of proven design and aftermarket support, but I hate the way they feel in my hand, hate field stripping them, and just don't like shooting them. Like I said, it will either be that new HK45, a P220, or a 226.
Those two statements blow me away! Wow. Two reasons I enjoy the 1911.but I hate the way they feel in my hand, and just don't like shooting them.
So because my hand is built differently than yours, thus making a 1911 uncomfortable to me, that blows you away?Those two statements blow me away! Wow. Two reasons I enjoy the 1911.
I'm a huge Sig fan and have been using the P226 for the past 9 years. I was a Glock fan at first but after continuous use in the Navy, I'm hooked. I love the look of the beavertails on the Elite's as well. I see a
P229R Elite E2 in my future.
To be honest, I wouldn't either. I like the 1911 a lot, but would rather choose a P226R over it in combat any day. I just saw a guy here yesterday who had 4 silver mags in mag holders around his waist and thought, "Huh?" Then I saw his black 1911 in a drop-leg, and the tan US Marshall polo shirt. Weird. His counterpart was wearing a M92 Burrito.Everyone is different. Don't get me wrong, I like the concept of it with its ease of modification and I will build a 1911 soon just for shooting at the range, but i will never use it in a tactical situation
I agree, but it just depends on what you've trained on as far as what feels good to you. Personal experience is one of my shooting buddy's grew up on a 1911 and i grew up on a glock. To me the 1911 feels weird and outdated, to him the glock feels chunky and plastic. To each his own right?far as grip angles go i prefer glock angles than my 1911 anyday.
