    and the colt jammed on me 4 times... everytime on the last bullet. my buddy told me that it was because my grip was too loose. i liked the trigger pull on the colt but everything else on the usp was better.

    Btw, that is weird that it would jam on the last round on you. Didnt happen to him? Maybe bad spring? :hs:

    1911's are more susepticle to limp wristing but it could also be an extractor problem.

    I prefer the H&K USP because it has a simpler takedown.

    Personally if I have a failure to feed I start looking at the gun before I would start second guessing my grip on the gun. 1911's are almost notorious for their extractors, even if it was a ftf due to a limp wrist that would still be unacceptable for me. One reason I really like the newer Kimbers with the external extractors (of course the USP has an external extractor) is the casing flys out of the damn chamber.

    Thats why having lots and lots of magazines is very important. Troubleshooting, plus you can have lots of ammo on hand and ready to shoot for range day!

    Either that or just a couple of Wilson 47Ds for your 1911s.

    it only happened to me though. maybe five other people shot the colt 1991 that day and they didnt have any issues. so it probably is my limp grip, but as someone else said, just because i'm holding the gun like a sissy, doesn't make it okay to jam. i'll stick with the H&K.

    edit: shot some glock .45 today (37?) and i didn't like it very much. that trigger guard bothered me and the grip seemed to short and stubby.

    The G37 is a single stack chambered in the new .45 GAP. Maybe that's what it was but more than likely it was a G30 (compact chambered in regular old .45) or G36 (compact single stack in regular old .45) if you thought the grip was too short.

    Try a Glock in 9mm if you haven't already.

    Uh, there is a pistol made by Colt chambered in .45 that is named the "1991".

    Should we all call it something else?

    Is the gun catching the shell? I had that problem when I was little, not strong enough wrists. Gotta hold it tighter if thats happening.
