Your quote amply demonstrates why special police units with extensive weapons training (such as SWAT) use 1911's as a sidearm to accompany their long guns.

Beat cops that shoot qualifications once a year?

I don't want them handling a 1911. Heck, I don't want them handling a Taurus 94 .22 revolver with a 25lb DA trigger. Give 'em billy clubs if they won't qualify monthly.

Seriously. Show the armorer or your Sergeant that you can run a magazine into a pair of targets, effectively change magazines, and run a second magazine into another pair of targets. Anywhere from 16 (1911) to 34 (G17) rounds... not a big deal.

And if you qualify monthly, you will keep in practice. If nothing else, just from repeated qualification.
