I am a LEO in South La. now for 30 years. I have had my share of 1911s in the past but they have come and gone. Been carrying Glock 23 and 27 now since they are issued to us. I am about to jump back into 1911s again. Looking at a Kimber custom II or a Springfield loaded. I have been lurking around different 1911 forums to get some insight. I will have to start on the low end for starters. Right now just dealing with a little rain storm called Tropical Storm Lee.
