    Why not a custom Wilson combat for SS?

    Nils Jonasson has done pretty well:) shooting 1911, 2011 and Open pistols built by Matt McLearn at McLearn Custom. I am not on the same planet as Nils when it comes to shooting---but I have poured many thousands of rounds through my McLearn 1911 and it has been absolutely perfect.

    Dan Wesson PM9 vs STI Trojan

    My Dan Wesson was far superior to the STI 1911 I owned (for a short while).

    STI made by Dasan Machineries korea??

    Nate is the managing director of Westwind Investors...the equity firm that bought stake in STI? He has a lot on his plate, I agree with Sarge...I hope he turns STI around, we will all benefit.

    Buck...was Greg Mooney replaced as CEO? Who is the CEO now? I look forward to seeing the new and improved STI lineup!

    So 1911 9mm Single Stacks...

    I have sent a couple RO's to Matt McLearn for reliability work, trigger, etc. For total cost they are great package. They have been 100%.

    Advice for my next competition 1911

    I recommend you email or contact Nils Jonasson about his single stack built by Matt McLearn. Then, contact Matt and ask him to "build me one just like Nils has":) I have 2 single stacks built by Matt, both in .45, one damascus slide, one regular slide, and both have been 100% reliable, very accurate, and just an all around pleasure to shoot.
  10. I bought a RO in 9mm and in 45acp, sent them both to Matt McLearn and he did his magic, both pistols are now 100% reliable, accurate and fun.

    Disable grip safety or not.

    I prefer a grip with no functioning "safety". Some prefer no grip safety at all. I have never heard of it making a 1911 more dangerous than it otherwise is---with no finger on the trigger. Sheriff Jim Wilson wrote a little about this several years ago. Nice little article: http://sheriffjimwilson.com/2011/09/30/one-to-rely-on/

    38 sc vs 9mm open major

    Recently bought .338Lapua brass "on sale" for $259 per hundred...maybe that is why pistol brass of all calibers seems so reasonable to me:)

    38 sc vs 9mm open major

    Some folks also are not yet set up (or don't have the time) to reload the .38SC, or 9mm major. Atlanta Arms and Ammo sells both (and .38 Super): 9mm 147 grain JHP Major: $440.00 per 1,000. .38 Super 125 grain JHP: $410.00 per 1,000. .38 SC 125 grain JHP: $410.00 per 1,000. https://atlantaarms.com/products/38-super-comp-125gr-jhp-major.html

    38 sc vs 9mm open major

    I guess everything is relative, but in the larger view of hobbies and costs of hobbies, we are very lucky to be talking about the difference in the initial cost of common pistol brass (that can be fired many, many times)...as opposed to hobbies like drag racing, motocross, 3 day eventing, rodeo, bass fishing on a regional or national competitive circuit, national level travel fast-pitch softball, etc. Having some experience in (paying) for a couple of those, the cost of this hobby by comparison makes me almost feel like I am getting paid to play with these pistols:) Life is short. Shoot whatever you like, and try to take a friend or family member along for the fun!
