Default Who Likes 1911's

I was never one to be taken in by a fad but recently I've seen some Ultra Compact 1911's that really catch my eye. Don't have one yet but it might be on my wish list. This one is singing to me.

I love my 1911, Ruger SR1911 Commander. One day I would like to have an Officer's model.

I think 1911s have outlasted the "fad" stage by now.

there's a 5" Ruger on my short list of guns to buy.

Agreed.

I had enough $$$$ saved up months ago to get the S&W "E" Series, but opted to build my AR instead during the panic. Now that I have the AR, I wish I would have went with the pistol instead.

Maybe fad was a bad term. I guess their appeal has never diminished. I've just finally crawled out from under my rock (dragging my knuckles) and discovered them. Now that the gun has captured my interest, I may have to add one to my collection.

I wish Ruger made a Ultra Compact like Springfield and Kimber do. I want the compact size and the extra capacity. They both hold 10 rounds.

Default ...it's not you it's me...

I may be burned at the stake for heresy, but I've never been a huge fan of 1911s. Yes, they are great pistols, the .45ACP is a good cartridge, legendary designer... yada, yada. There is no need to try and convince me that it is one of the best handgun designs of the 20th century and beyond. I agree.

That being said, I just don't mesh with the pistol very well. And not for lack of trying, I have owned 3. (A Norinco 1911A1, A Colt 1911A1 Commander and a Colt 1991 Officer). But none of them really tripped my trigger (pun intended).
After years of thinking I "needed" one in the collection and trying to find one that worked for me, I finally realized that we just weren't meant to be.

If I'm going with a Browning design, it would be the P.35.
