    Dont want to bore anyone with pics of my targets but I thought there might be someone who is considering the smith and wesson E series commander. I took it out saturday and ran about 200 more rounds thru it using pmc 230s and some blazers and a few power ball 165s and some golden sabre 185s. I used two wilson combat mags, three mccormic 10 rd mags 2 smith stock mags and two taurus mags. Its nice not having to load two mags over and over. I have never shot IDPA or any comp shooting so I couldnt tell you how it would stack up to that. But I can tell you that it is the most accurate gun I have ever owned right out of the box. At 50 ft I used the seat of my golf cart for support and was holding good tight groups with little variation. The gun performed flawlessly. Not one single hickup or failure to feed or stovepipe. Any ammo, any magazine it didnt matter. I am impressed with this gun. I am not sorry I purchased it and it is well on its way to earning the title of "everyday carry". It will run circles around my springfield EMP. I have been carrying a colt defender everyday up till now, but am considering switching or rotating.

    H-D all 1911s are a thing of beauty in my eyes. Some more than others but almost every single one I have owned has been a decent shooter. I love them. No, it goes much, much deeper than that........

    I see some blacked out serial #s curious about the reasoning behind this.

    My super black hawk was stolen from me. The only reason I'd think to hide a serial number is because the rifle or pistol is in question.

    Here's MR. Kimber..

    ZERO FTE ZERO FTF in 600 rounds. has all been factory 230 grain FMJ
    IT really loved the new remi UMC TARGET with the yellow lettering
    and Hornady # 9097...the winchester black box bonded JHP 230 grains are very accurate in this weapon: also. IT didnt prefer winchester white box
    or the old style remi green box...

    They're Corbon Glasser Pow'r Ball. It has a polymer ball inserted into a really wide hollow point. It has two purposes. It gives a "round-ball" profile to a hollow point for guns that jam with hollow points (not why I bought it). The second is that the polymer ball will push open the hollow point in a short barrel 45 with a lower velocity (that's why I bought them). I use them in my 3" Colt Defender.

    So it's just a hollow point shaped like a FMJ for feed reliability? How is the performance of that round in a 5" barrel 1911?

    I have never had them jam in anything and they have a high velocity for a 45. In a 5" they approach 1300fps but they are also very light bullets (165 grains). I figure its a 40 cal bullet weight with a 9mm velocity and a 45 cal diameter; what's not to like?
