Re: 45acp Or 10mm
I had a Kimber Stainless custom Target 2 1911, in 10mm. (1994 era target 2 came from the custom shop). I LOVED that gun! I just couldnt find ammo for it. (before I handloaded)I sold it to a family friend and wound up buying the Springfield XD in .40s&w, for my cary gun and woods back up. Ive NEVER been a fan of ''plastic pistols'', but the Glock and the XD were light and reputable, so I shot both, and didnt like the feel/fit of the Glock, where as the XD seemed to fit better. For my needs the .40 s&w in the XD was a perfect combo. My dad has the Kimber CDP2 in 45 and loves it. Its a shooter for sure! Ive owned a Kimber Eclipse in .45 and it was a good pistol, but not what I expected. Next 1911, Ill go with the Kimber Grand Raptor 2 in .45 . Theres just something about a 1911 that goes hand in hand with 45. cal.
IMO if its a 1911 you cant go wrong with Kimber and .45, if its a tupperware gun go with .40 s&w in XD or Glock wich ever fits your hand best, unless you handload. The 10mm performance is impressive. (10mm does wonders on a deer) But if you dont load, youll cry everytime you fork out the equivelant of half the national debt out of your wallet for a box of good 10mm ammo.......IF you can find some to buy. Just my 2 cents. Good luck
