    I want to add, the weight can be overcome through training. I didnít finish that part. That was just the first time I put that many rounds and repetitions with the 1911.

    When I'm feeling nostalgic, it's Delta Elite, all the way.

    I carry a Les Baer Stinger in 38 Super. The recoil is enough less than the 45 that it helps, I'm old and broken. I like the weight of the all steel gun and don't mind carrying it.

    There's a lot of new ammo out for the Super and the boutique manufactures are doing a pretty good job of it but it's not inexpensive. I'm kinda partial to the 124g loads which are fairly close performance wise to a similar weight in 357 mag. If I thought that a reliable supply of ammo was an issue I'd shoot 9mm and do in a full sized 1911.

    I believe theyíre pretty comparable, the 10mm has a little more stomp and recoil.

    I realize itís kind of off topic. But we started down the nostalgia road.

    An old man in a shop called Idaho leather, Ben Wetzel was his name. He was a saddle maker and loved making holsters. I wanted that setup since I bought the guns and finally my wife surprised me last Christmas. Unfortunately he passed away. My set was the last set he ever made. I’m honored to have it. It’s called the last man standing holster, others make it but they are all custom and the arnt cheap.
