Full size .45 (not-1911)

I'm new to this kind of stuff as far as non-1911 stuff goes. What sort of competition can I use a full-size non-1911 service pistol in?

.45

You can shoot NRA Bullseye (Conventional Pistol) with any type of .45 pistol, be it revolver or semi-automatic. That "can shoot" involves both the Centerfire matches as well as the ".45 only" match section.
What you cannot shoot are the CMP "Leg" matches.

What kind of non-1911 .45 do you have or want?
There are few with the accuracy needed for bullseye or PPC; S&W M945 and Pardini that I know of.
Any of the rest would be ok for IDPA or IPSC/USPSA.
A Glock 21 would run in GSSF, too.

USP45 - might invest in fully adjustable sights and match trigger.

Thanks for the info so far, guys!

Well, that really limits which pistol you would use. Whatever, you could shoot IDPA or IPSC. If it is a double stack magazine you will shoot in a different class than 1911s, probably be competing against a lot of Glocks, SIGs, don't know what else.

Don't worry about the 1911 dudes

I do prefer my 1911; 'you bet-cha', but don't sweat shooting a Glock or Sig. When you get the chance to see a group of real good shooters using
stock Bereta 92s, Sigs or Glocks the 'idea' of the perfect 1911 starts to fade.
