If i got one for personal carry I was thinking of shooting 3 45 and 2 00 or more likely pdx1 shots. 40-50 feet is really about the average range you would engage a target, so it sounds like it would work hust fine.

Well, concealed carry with a Judge is tricky. I open-carry when I'm working (field geo-tech; I'm not a lawman) because it just wears better on an outer belt. If you're a big dude wearing lotsa clothing, sure--fair game. That's kind of why one of those Kimber 1911 ultra-compacts interest me so dang much. As far as a face-to-face situation, though, the Judge will take care of any ne'er-do-wells.

It's all about what tool you need for what job. The cool thing about the Judge is I usually load two chambers for 4-shot in .410 and three with 45LC wadcutters (or 00 buck). That way, both kinds of snakes are dealt with. *shrug*

Cool

I take it there is a lot of space in Idaho Very Happy

Ha! I've had a similar experience, Kyle. Not very pleasant. One of my buds was trying to shoot a rabbit with his 1911 while driving our old jeep. I got a blazing hot shell casing down the back of my collar. I tuck in my shirt tails so it had nowhere to go. My friend said I did one hell of a dance.

I don't know about sympathy, but definitely points Smile

I am a huge fan of the 1911. My everyday carry is a 4" Kimber but when competing its my full size Kimber custom eclipse II. If your choice is a combate handgun, I sway to the S&W M&P.... built off a glock design, they are well balanced and handle and operate amazingly well!!

I had one of those. It was a nice little .380... I just traded it at a gun show for something I needed more.

I own an Auto Ordnance 1911 that was made after the comeback under new management. As long as I keep it properly lubed it will fire all day long without so much as a burp. It dearly loves oil.

When I carry it is almost always a 1911

I have 3 45's.

A Kimber Combat Carry, Colt Officer's Model and a Caspian put together by Clark's Custom Guns. Not a race gun but it's tweaked a little.

I'm a big guy. 6'5" 250 lbs. Any 45 hides easy on me.

Always a fan of the .45. My current carry weapon is a Sig Revolution Carry. Many thousands of rounds thru it and never a glitch (knock on wood).

I was thinking about getting one for a long time.
Recently, I had my eye on the Ruger SR1911.
But then I changed my mind and decided to get a Glock 21.

Old thread but still fun. I have the same Remington 1911R1 as the OP except mine is stainless. It's a decent entry level 1911. I like mine although I'd love to have a higher end one someday. I also have a S&W model 642 .38 special in SS with coccobolo grips. Both are great handguns.

If you like pistols you are a 1911 fan. The 1911 is the standard if ya will.

I'd love to have the Springfield Armory Loaded 1911 Very Happy 

Any 1911 fans? - Page 2 Image21

It would be a Just Cuz for fun gun though. If I were going to own just one handgun it would be the Glock 19 9mm, with the Sig P226 Navy coming in a close second. A 1911 would be only after the above two, if I still had any money left Laughing

I like the Springfield XD9 much better than the Glock.
Then I do like Ruger P series more than most of the higher end pistolas.

There is something to be said about a design that has been reliable for over a century. I love the 1911. I have a stainless steel Springfield. I named her Karina. She is one hell of a nice weapon. I took her boar hunting the other day. No kills, unfortunately.

For me the .45 handles very differently than a 9mm. I am far more accurate with most 9mm's but nothing beats the feel of a .45. I just need some more practice.
I've yet to name any of my guns lol. Maybe I'll name my .44 Big Bertha...Here's Big Bertha:
Last I went shooting with it I was able to hit a quarter from 10 yards.
44 Mags are great, I use to have a Stainless steel Virgina Dragoon 44 mag with 8-3/8" barrel. Could fire it one handed and hit my mark, the recoil was next to nothing being the large frame and barrel length. All I have now is my 45 long Colt, and the dog can still hunt.

My better half gifted me with a new Remington Stainless 45 auto for last Christmas. It's a sweet shooting rig for the money. I've owned Colt 45 Gold Cup's in the past, and sorry that I sold them. Isn't that always the case? Being of smaller stature I find the 45's too bulky to carry but my Colt Diamondback 38 with 2 1/2 inch barrel and smoothest action I've ever fired is a keeper.

I agree they are a bit bulky, I remember at the time I purchased the 44 the only holster they had in stock at the time was a shoulder holster so, reluctantly I got it. Needless to say the 8-3/8" barrel didn't help because with a jacket on it still hung down so low my jacket couldn't hide it. There certainly not a pocket pistol and I use to get ribbed all the time about it. Like "Hey, you forget to bring the wheels for that canon?"
