Re: 9mm 1911
I do intend to shoot IDPA and other recreation sporting with it.
If I understand IDPA correctly a 9mm 1911 is an ESP rating, the easiest shooting gun. Which in general is one thing that interests me in the 9mm 1911. However, in this case it's not necessarily a good thing as at the only IDPA event I have attended out of 32 shooters there were only 2 ESP shooters - yes, both were men. ;-)
Anyway, it appears that I will not have many peers to shoot against in the standings with this gun. Not too big a deal, but as I progress in skill level, this may become a problem. Of course, if I'm shooting often enough for it to matter to me, maybe I'll appreciate the price of the 9mm ammo which is another thing that attracts me to the 9.
Laslty, dumb question, and I'm nearly certain I know the answer, but can someone comfirm for me - to remove the slightest doubt - that a 9mm luger is in fact the same as a 9x19?
