Thinking about adding a new 1911 to the stable, looking to see about a 3 inch with an eye towards carry. Thoughts, ideas, good idea, bad idea, personal experience ect? Basically I need something that I am going to practice with more than my j-frame, I love it for a few shots, but hate it after more than a few. I on the other hand simply adore my other 1911s they are simply too large for me to get away with carrying. Oh and before it turns into a glock and XD fest in here, I have nothing against those guns, but they do not work for me and I'd rather carry my old german luger than either of them.
