    Newbie here from CO. Been lurking a bit and enjoying the site.

    I’m looking at getting my first 1911. I’ve been shooting (sporadically), a Glock 19 but have come to the conclusion that the double stack is not good for my smaller hands, and is affecting my accuracy. I’m also cross-eye dominant so that doesn’t help, either. My husband has an old, cheap Rock Island 1911 that I’ve been shooting and it’s much better for me. He’s a Glock Guy(tm) so isn’t much use when it comes to teaching me about 1911s, which is why I am here.

    Glad you have chosen to join us in our love of the 1911 platform and that someone in the family has good sense :roflmaro:
    Happy to answer any questions.

    Love that chart! May have to borrow that. I’m pretty consistently shooting to the left as a right handed shooter.

    And there’s no changing my Glock Guy. He’s been shooting them for 20+ years. I will say he does appreciate a good looking 1911 though.

    I wish I could escape but the wife isn't cooperating. Illinois is not going to get any gun friendlier in the next few years. You may have escaped just in time. Monkey the cat is a major mischief maker!

    I don’t think Colorado will be, either. We have a lot of Californians here now, but also a lot of Texans so maybe it will balance out lol

    Welcome from Alabama! That said, Colorado is one of my favorite places, so much so that I found a vendor on EBay who crafted this nifty vanity / novelty plate for me!

    Welcome from Alaska! Like you I find Glocks just too large for my hands. The only double stack pistol that does feel good in my hands is my Browning High Power built by Bob Marvel. IMG_4805.jpg
