Hello Johnny - I'm glad that you posted the above, because it blows all the error-net rumors to Hell.
Take care Johnny - and I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I've always maintained that the 1911 ain't exactly a Swiss watch, and I've become unpopular in certain circles by pointing out things like that...but I'll keep on keepin' on just the same.
Part of that comes from the way I look at a 1911 pistol. I don't see a fancy custom gun or a minute of paper puncher. To me, it's a weapon pure and simple. A broadhead ax...not a surgeon's scalpel.
A tool that we drag through the mud and the blood and the beer...not a protected, pampered heirloom. If one of mine gets skinned up in the course of the day, I'd probably have a hard time tellin' the new skint part from the old skint parts.
And I can't see it (the pistol) any other way, no matter how hard I try.

I own over a dozen 1911s and although most will feed HPs fine I never trust any 1911 to feed anything but round nose when reliability has to be 100%. My carry gun is a pre 70 series commander that will not feed anything but ball ammo. For single stack USPSA class I shoot a custom built caspian that feeds anything 99.999% of the time but I don't trust anything but 100%. In my experience I've never seen a 45 hp expand anyway and see it as a nonissue. I am more than confident in a 230 gr load that no one is going to require a second shot if I ever had to use it for self defense. My carry ammo is carbon match 230rn .

I have been very lucky with my 1911s, the only one that I had issues with was a new Dan Wesson V-Bob. I was told that it was built so tight that it just needed to be broken in. I can live with that with a new shotgun but not a handgun so I sold it. I now carry a TRP that has been so far 100% for me. It is not a 3k gun but it does fire every time and is very accurate for what it is. just another 2 cents
