I currently own a few handguns, but none ideally suited for carry. There is something about the 1911 that absolutely fascinates me, I can't explain it. I have a Kimber Tactical II Pro in .45.
My desire is to find a 1911 in .40 S&W with about a 3" barrel. Just curious, what do you all like? I see a lot of varied opinions coming in about a 1911 being to big and bulky, but hammerless autos bother me personally, and won't likely be a consideration.
