Favorite Pistol besides a 1911 platform
I've been wondering what hand gun you guys prefer other than a 1911 platform weapon. I really like 1911's but I enjoy other hand guns also. I'm sure a bunch of ya'll have multiple hand guns or have had in the past.
For me the question is easy, maybe because I carried one 25+ years to work, at work, and to home from work. I shot thousands of rounds through it without ever 1 malfunction and probably the reason I got off on the 1911.
It is a H&K USP Compact .40, DA/SA with a manual safety & decocker. I like that gun because of the different modes I can carry it in, loaded on safety, loaded off safety in DA/SA mode, or SA cocked & locked just like a 1911 and my SA trigger is real sweet at 4#. I carried it cocked & locked most of the time, the reason for liking the 1911. The only downside is I wish it had been 6-8 oz. lighter but other than that one fine firearm. I wound up with another just like it in 357 Sig and I switched back and forth.
After carrying cocked and locked so much I was really happy & comfortable with my new Kimber Aegis Ultra II and the size and weight is a dream. I just hope it's as reliable as my old HK, it sure is pretty.
