      Thumbs up

      I have two 1911's that I am very found of:

      A. S&W-PD for carry.
      B. Kimber Team Match II for the range.

      Both are excllent shooters and have failed me.

      I don't have a favorite .45 ACP- yet, still too inexperienced, but that's a sweet pistol

      Do you mean that both guns have never failed you?

      My Beretta Cougar 8045F. It has a rotating barrel so it's very smooth for me to shoot.

      I guess the only one I have must be my favorite and it's an M&P45Fs.
      I swapped my M&P40 for it because the 40 recoil was bothering my Arthritic wrists. It's working great for me so far.

      FWIW. I purchased a sample of LSWC's so the holes in paper would be easier to see. While preparing to load them I decided to give the M&P a tough test regarding feed performance. Some empty cases were loaded in a mag and hand cycled through the pistol with no hangups. None of my other Auto's will feed empty brass. And before you ask, no I don't plan on carrying a mag load of empties.

      Ruger KP90DC...

      ...because the action is initially like a DA revolver...no fumbling for slow hands...they're ultra-reliable...plenty accurate for defense...even less recoil than my Combat Commander had...just a pure pleasure to shoot...the decocker makes for safe handling and carrying...

      Tanfoglio Witness .45 in Wonder finish. It is beautiful and super accurate. I can hit a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper EVERY time from 25 yards and I'm a hack. It's a tank, though. All steel.

      Although that's better than I can now do, what with old age and arthritis and all, hitting "a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper" at 25 yards does not qualify a pistol as "super accurate."
      You say you're a "hack." OK, what sort of groups will it make in expert hands? Do you know?
      Please advise.

      It's actually the little brother of the Italian Tanfoglio "Gold Match" (5 1/4" barrel) that is used world-wide in bigtime shooting competitions. Here - http://www.eaacorp.com/handguns-witn...scription.html

      They make weapons for the Israeli army and parts for Beretta. Good enough for me. With my eyes, a sheet of paper at 75' looks like a little white blur.

      Currently my favorite .45 is my Taurus OSS DS. Very well built and accurate extremely comfortable to shoot.

      Many people bash Taurus, I have two and they are great guns. I also own Glock/Sig/Browning/S&W/Colt/Ruger handguns-so I can compare.

      Concur on the Taurus. Have a Mil Pro .45 for winter carry. It's perfect for my needs. Have a Taurus 9mm, too and like the looks of their new .380 for pocket carry.

      Glock 30 is my favorite right now. Recoil is very reasonable and it is not impossible to conceal. I really liked my Colt 1991A1, but I needed a concealed carry .45 cal that did not pull my pants to the floor or my back out of whack. I found that most of my opinions regarding which pistol to own changed completely once I started attaching the gun to my body everyday. I will purchase the G21 before spring (home defense) and a Kahr 45 (edc) as well. My Keltec P3AT or G26 have become my EDC's far more often now than the G30.
