    After reading through this thread I'm hoping a bad guy with a B&A needs some mad skill to achieve minute of man at 100+ yards. Otherwise I'll have to switch my EDC to an AR pistol. What cyclic rate...

    I bought a "C" a few months ago for (civilian) EDC. I couldn't be happier: light, soft-shooting, easy to conceal, and accurate. It has cycled everything I've fed it with Tripp Cobra mags that I run...

    I'm going for a Pfizer booster next week and at 75 y/o it's probably a good idea. Had almost no reaction to either of the first two shots, maybe a bit sore across the shoulders after shot 2. The...

    Glad you're ok. I wear my normal poly-carbonate glasses. Think I'll start wearing something wraparound. My autodrive is on autopilot. Have been fortunate in a few hundred thousand rounds to have...

    Was HK P30sk LEM until recently. Now Staccato C which conceals under anything; 9+1 with a slightly extended Tripp mag and 1-2 spare mags. Thinking C2 for winter carry.

    Or a saddle maker. Given that Portland is becoming a wild west town I'm sure they are easy to find.

    Dan,
    I like the discipline built into your approach. With a full-size/commander-size 1911 no problem; I've done much the same for several years. I can retain complete control of the handgun which...

    Mas,
    Much appreciated. Will definitely get a better stab at the mag release and have one-in-the-hand prior to dropping a mag. I might go with a slightly taller mag release, not to permit using my...
  10. 1911 Platform - l/h thumb for mag release?

    Shooting my full-size 1911 I can hit the mag release with only the slightest rotation of my right hand. I've been doing so for several years. I'm working on my mechanics with my new Staccato C and...

    OP, I'm in a similar "boat". Bought a Staccato C for carry and I'm going to my second IDPA match tomorrow (first was several years ago). This should be a great venue for working out the bugs. It...

    I'll try to have my wife take a few pictures. The holster is not getting in the way; it's just very tight to my body. I can get a decent grip but I've got to relax/shift the grip a bit to maneuver...

    Background: I shoot Steel Challenge with a 9mm 1911 and had been carrying HK (P2000, P20SK) both OWB and IWB. I decided if my life depended on it I would rather be presenting a 1911 so bought a...

    Staccato C - first observations

    I've been shooting full-size 9mm 1911s for several years with well over 100K rounds practicing for and competing in Steel Challenge. I'd wanted a light-weight commander for concealed carry for some...

    A place called "Shoot Center" in FL has various CCI primers for under 10 cents. This is very high but compared to what the few sources are asking appears to be a fair price with such scarcity.
