Noreaster, if you can give me some extra information on this, I'd love to have it. The Archive in L&CR has lots of stuff, but if this one has been overlooked, I'd like to find it for inclusion.
Edited to add: Oh, and going back to the OP. Make mine a .45, please. The .40 is (IMO) certainly an adequate round, and I would not feel undergunned if it is what I had, but I prefer .45. I like the way it shoots, and I like 1911s.
