Interesting. I am getting ready to sell my Glock .40 hi-caps (to buy more 9mm/.45 ones), and the only reason I haven't is that they might be handy for IPSC (with a G35).
I was also thinking of just shooting my 1911 single stack for IPSC and not worring about being totally competitive...just having fun (right now, I only shoot IDPA). Or, a Glock 34 (if you shoot accurately, is "minor" a big handicap?).
As far as putting together a sweet .40 double stack 1911, i'd love to. But where/how do you get enough mags if you have none now? I imagine they are pricey. Thanks
