And on that note... Does anyone make a 1911 that shoots .40? Hmmm. I don't mean like the ultra compact Springfield EMP type. But a full sized one.
I've seen very nice 1911s shoot .38 Super. And this one shoots 9mm. Sweet
The mags wouldn't be the same as a 1911, interchangeability wise. Naturally. And you'd get, what? An extra round in a single stack mag? Not much point at that. Unless you REALLY loved the .40. I'm in LIKE with the .40, not in LOVE.
But for some reason, this thought intrigues me. An all-metal, single-stack, not quite duty-sized, .40 of some flavor has for a while. Kahr has a version, yes. Word is, Springfield dropped them from their lineup a while back.
I don't know why I'm not satisfied. Probably subconsciously looking for a hardware solution to a software problem. At least I'm looking for hen's teeth. If I was looking for something a little more common I'd be 'wasting' money on guns that turn out not to be magic when I get them
That's how I ended up with the Sig P229 DAK. When I borrowed one I just shot those 2 magazines so darn well. When I bought it, I didn't shoot it as well. Such is life. But I still shoot it ok, and would love to carry it more, but the thing IS a bit bulky. I can't imagine carrying something that thick all the time. If it was as thin as the 1911, but that smooth and that operating system...
