My father has a Beretta 10mm, stainless steel. it's a beautiful weapon, i've shot it and i really like it. I've never shot a .45 though, he doesn't have one. I am curious how they compare in terms of ballistics performance, in terms of recoil, and other things. The Beretta is full size btw, i guess it's a 92 model, but i'm not 100% sure. also, on the subject, (this is from my other thread) what do you guys think of this gun: http://www.impactguns.com/store/springfield_milspec_1911a1.html and what do you think of this gun: http://www.gunsandammomag.com/ga_handguns/para_0904/ that para ordnance one is awfully expensive, but it sounds pretty nice. is a full size 1911 too big for CCW?
