I know how you hate to think about guns ...

... but I thought I would ask anyway.

Suppose you could not own a true 1911. Suppose your auto .45 choices were limited to DA-type guns.

1. Which make/model would you choose if reliability were your only criterion?

2. Which make/model would you choose if accuracy were your only criterion?

3. Which make/model would you choose if concealability were your only criterion?

4. Which make/model would you choose if trigger action (weight, smoothness, etc.) were your only criterion?

If God didn't want us to own guns, why did He make the 1911?

Of course the Sig220.

I have a rather unpopular opinion about this issue. I own a 1911 because it can be made to be the most accurate .45 pistol by a large margin. But that's by far its best attribute in my opinion.

I LOVE 1911s, but for everything besides accuracy (think reliability, capacity, simplicity), the SIG or even a Glock 21 is the way to go. I'll never own a 220 or a G21, because that's not why I have pistols.
