Some of the largest reasons not to discount the 1911 were touched on and I second them.
1) 1911 pistols fit a much wider variety of hand sizes than the HOG LEG USP .45
2) 1911 is proven in combat. NO ONE in there right mind is suggesting a WWII era 1911 to be used in current applications but a modernized 1911.

3) Single action is a more efficient projectile delivery system, period. YES, I know people can become very fast with dbl action, for sure. But it takes less time to get to a good level of speed, efficiency with single action. Less time, more soldiers up to speed faster is a good thing.

That's funny!

I thought the USP "fixed" everything that was "wrong" w the 1911!

Got rid of the bushing, spring plug, bbl link, etc, gave me a DA option, a polymer frame, and a hicap mag that actually worked.

I do love my 1911s. And my FN High Powers. IMO, my USP (in 9 minimeter no less) is right up there with them.

I must say that these posts regarding the USP and the 1911 are very entertaining.

For combat, clearly the USP is better suited - way more abusable and hands down out-of-th-box accurate. As an owner of several USP's and 1911, I can say this: If I were going to War I'd take along my USP. If carrying concealed, civilian world, my preference is the 1911. Why? Well, it's flatter, easier to conceal and yes, there is a great level of nostalgia there, too. So there, I said it. Plus the feel of the 1911, especially a properly hand checkered one with a sweet finish and glorious grips; it's like eating an ice cream in the shade on a hot summer day –
