I think the 1911 has a different feel than other guns. When I was at a recent gun show, I walked around and held every model of gun. To me the 1911 has its own feel. It feels good in my hands, even though my hands are small.
A 1911 feels like it is a part of your hand, Aims great the ballance feels perfect. It shoots like no other weapon. It looks better than other hand guns. It is a true work of art. There is no other weapon like it.
