    In my "I Love Shooting" order of affection :

    Kimber 1911 45 ACP
    Ruger P95 9mm
    HiPoint 995 Carbine 9mm
    Ruger 10/22 Carbine Folding stock, dual 30 rd mags
    Winchester 9422M
    S&W K 22
    Heritage Birdshead 22LR/22Mag
    Stoeger Coach Gun Double 12 ga
    Remington 870 12 ga.
    Mossberg 500 18" 12 ga.
    Judge Public Defender (45LC/410)
    Remington 660 Carbine .308
    Remington Nylon 66 Apache 22LR
    Ruger LCP .380 ACP
    Followed by others

    But does that order ever shift around when it comes to personal defense with the LCP going to the top, followed by the Mossberg, Judge, Kimber, and P95. It depends where I'm at, ie. in the car, RV, home, motorcycle, house or walking as which to one is first on the list. As an example, at home at 3AM, the list goes Judge, Mossberg, P-95, Kimber in that order. The P-95 outranks the Kimber here solely because of capacity (18 rds). In the car, it's Judge, Kimber, LCP. Routine, outside walking, shopping, etc is LCP, and possibly Kimber. Around the house, it is a constant LCP with others stashed around the house in preordained locations. Life is complicated!

    I am definatly NOT a 1911 snob, but I think the 1911 is one of the finest handguns designed and they are great fun to shoot. I have a Kimber compact CDP and an Ed Brown, Massad Ayoob Signature 1911, and this gun is not in a case...I shoot it at least every two months. I do have the normal Smiths, Sigs, Glocks, Rugers, and Taurus' handguns...so I do believe in a "balanced" mixture!

    Yes, I plead guilty to being a shameless 1911 shooter. I have 3 DA/SA but they are alway operated as a single action.

    But I rent many others so I will be familiar with them should I need to have that knowledge at some critical time in the future. And besides, it's fun, and you don't have to clean them. The latest was a Springfield XD .40. Really great fun and I shot very will with it. I can see how others swear by it.

    1911 shobs are like Harley-Davidson snobs. I don't buy into all that crap. If a guy is on a bike and in the wind, I don't care what he is riding. If a shooter is trying his best to improve his skills, I don't care what he's shooting. You never know who will be covering your back sometime.
