    I can make ragged holes with my 1911s from 40 ft no problem. They shoot straighter than I ever will.

    15' !? Lots more reach than that IMO. Took a deer years ago with my TRP, one shot put him down. Bout 20 yds. Took another with mild .40 reloads at 30 yds, one shot death. US army states 50m as max effective, considering power and accuracy.

    I know I'm new here, but IMHO if you cant hit anything beyond 15ft with a 1911, even an old G.I. spec 1911A1, you probably shouldn't be handling firearms.

    1911's are among the easiest major caliber guns to shoot accurately, mostly due to the trigger.

    The main complaint that is levied against 1911's for serious work is capacity, most feelin 8rnds sounds low compared to the double stack guns. I have never heard anyone complain about the accuracy.

    I use a Colt 1911A1 Pistol. I have always preferred it, in competition and on the battlefield. This guy is not going to change my mind nor my preference. I support and defend the right of any American to speak about whatever they want, as long as it is within the context of the law.

    Let's move on now, the sandbox name calling contest is really boring..

    I'd never heard of Mr Yeager before today and haven't missed anything. I trust any of my 1911 pistols more than I trust his opinion. He probably doesn't care any more of my opinion than I do of his. I'm not replacing any of my pistols with the tupperware he prefers.
