Re: I just couldn't resist...
I'm a 1911 man from way back, carry piece is a Commander. As far as I am concerned, no other pistol compares except possibly a Browning Hi Power, but I just don't care for 9mm.
A number of years ago, I was visiting with a friend who owns many high end firearms, Ed Brown, Wilson Combat etc. He offered to show me his most prized possession, it was the ugliest, missing blueing, nicked up, chipped grip Hi Power I had ever seen. Turns out he carried it in a shoulder holster for over 100 trips into North Vietnam in the back seat of an F-4, and thru 20 years of the Guard. He keeps it in a fancy presentation box.
Clean that Rock island up well, polish the feed ramp a bit and buy some Chip McCormick or Wilson Combat mags, and you will have the equal of any pistol, including a Kimber. Good purchase.
It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.
