    yeah, but only one of them is anything close to commander length, with a 4.15" barrel. And it's $2k.

    I can't fucking stand glocks. Ugly as shit, they fit my hand like shit, and I'm much more accurate with the 1911 (even a bastardized one).

    Then there's all the glock fanboys :ugh:

    yeah, but race guns aren't all that practical. the idea of practicing/competing/carrying the same gun appeals to me.:hs:

    Also, I definately think a 5" 1911 would be easier than a Commander-size w/ double-stack mag if you're doing IWB/OWB CC. Barrel length makes no difference then.

    If you want to shoot Lim-10 just get a single stack with the Chip McCormick 10 round mags. That is what most of the Lim-10 shooters at my club use.

    Also, I'm not sure if you looking at pure IPSC or USPSA... USPSA has a provisional "Single Stack" division that sounds like it is probably going to stick, and that basically provides a "stock 1911" division.

    It seems that would be too easy for him.

    Do not get the kimber I had one. Sharp edges on the grips and mags and did not conceal well at all. I carry a glock 30 that conceals beautifully now.
