There were five courses setup and five different upper end 1911 single stacks for competitiors to use. The guns were two Springfields, a Kimber Ultra Match, a Nowlin "Super Match"?? and a Caspian. Regular IPSC style shooting, good amount of steel/paper mix. Well run though, congrats to Livingston Gun Club and Patrick Sweeny on the smooth match.

For me the ranking of the guns was;
1)Nowlin, simply perfect!
2)Kimber Super Match, slightly heavier trigger than Nowlin.
3)Springfield Professional Model (not sure??)
equal to Kimber, finicky with mags.
4)Caspian, stainless gun, real finicky with mags.
5)Springfield Loaded (not sure??)blecch!

I will have dreams of the trigger in the Nowlin, WOW!!

I also attended the match. I totally agree with Postban that the Nowlin was heads and shoulders above the other guns. I rank the guns as follows:

1) Nowlin. Every bit as good as my Wilson Protector or CQB Compact.
2) Springfield Professional. Fit, finish and trigger were excellent.
3) Kimber Super Match. Tough for me to rank a Kimber Super Match 3rd, but the other two were just better.
4) Caspian. Nice gun, just needed to have a couple of the kinks worked out of it. It lacked an ambi safety and that make it tough for us lefties.

5) Springfield. Also missing an ambi safety.
It should be noted that this was a replacement gun for the STI that became inoperable half way through the match.

Overall this was a fun event that should be explored by other clubs. It gave all the shooters a chance to try various guns under match conditions.
