The one thing that I find missing from all of the new pistols is the ergonomics of the 1911. The way the 1911 fits in my hand is unmatched by any other pistol. It's as simple as that for me.

This kind of reasoning I respect - I'm a noob with a glock and I'm sure I'll get around to trying a 1911 some day, but I'm seeing a lot of 1911 devotees that have a bit of a harley-ish "anything else is $#!+" attitude.

I like the ergos of the 1911, but don't think that has a thing to do with them being "better" necessarily. When I shot my first 1911s I thought they sucked. It was only after lots and lots and lots of shooting, which included a decade and a half of IPSC competition using them, that I came to find they worked for me. Habituation was the deal. It's what you get used to for the most part, and dimensions and angles are somewhat secondary.

You've got good taste,,,,but be careful telling your Devil dog brothers that a Delta forse guy designed your rifle.

Yeah he's Army, but I like a lot of his views on weapons and tactics
Besides, regardless of his service affiliation, the rifle is limited production, and the serial# of this particular one is...wait for it....01911

And Larrys 1911's are what hes known for.

I just get the shit from my Recon cuz,,,on Vickers stuff.Figured i'd throw it your way.
You ever see him shoot?
Hes designed guns for his gunsmithing company,H&K[he designed the SEALs 416's],DD,Among many others,and basicly designed the piston driven M-16 gas systems single handed.
Great American,and from what i've been told,a hell of a nice guy.Even if Delta did fuck up that Grenada thing years ago,and yes he was there and wounded.

Yea, he's a very knowledgable weapons guy. He is also good friends with Ken Hackathorn
I don't know about Grenada, but he was in Panama, and I was on standby to deploy there back when Noriega was running loose.
He's one of the few Army guys I really like
