Decisions, decisions. I've been wracking my brain for a long time about what gun to get for IDPA competition in the ESP Division. Sure, I could use my S&W M&P 40L; it's fast & fits the hand well, but it's also boring shooting the same gun in different divisions, especially a black polymer gun. So, in the interim I've been shooting my Sig P226 Elite Stainless 40S&W. I'm getting better and better with the DA/SA trigger, but it's still about 20 seconds slower in the Classifier than the M&P. At least it is really good looking! :thumb: CZ makes a potential contender, but I hate spending $1100 on a $600 gun that's still a $600 gun afterwards. So, that brings me to the 1911. The question of the moment is: which is better for competition - specifically IDPA ESP - 9mm or 38 Super? And why?
