As the gunner on a mortar team I was issued a Colt 1911. Although I had grown up shooting many other handguns, I got really good with this, qualified as expert, and it's my favorite platform. Besides owning a variety of other types of handguns, I have two of these as my home SD guns. On range trips I always take one of them.
Although I think they're too big for everyday CC, if we were allowed to carry in NJ my Glock 19 would be my first choice for EDC.
