After years trying to ignore the 1911/2011 platform, Buck and some other LE folks finally convinced me to give STI a try. They are definitely the most shootable pistols I have ever used. I will be dumping all my HK's, SIG's, Glocks, etc. to consolidate. If the reliability is there, and I think it is, then the STI 2011 is the gun to beat. Glad to be here.
