it ruined me...
I can not hold a pistol especially a polymer one and be happy about it without resorting to judgmental/prejudice feelings about the ergos, slide/frame fit, and dat trigger of a randomg pistol and my 1911.
I have to buy trigger kits for my polymer pistolas to make it even somewhat acceptable comparing it to my kimber. I mean who buys a $400 pistol and then buys like $250+ of upgrades immediately afterwards? Even my striker fire friends complain about the spongy/takeup/blah feel of their triggers after firing off my ultra at the range. They never ever complained before about their striker fire and use to sneer at DA/SA hammer handguns. My 12 year old son never shot a handgun in his life was shooting my 1911 and making 4" groups at 10 yards.
I never had this problem until i bought my 1911. My friends who never shot a 1911 before never had this problem until they shot my 1911. II am at the point where I can only make comparison of my 1911 to other 1911s because everything else is "substandard".
I sometimes wish i was ignorant and then i can go on without judging the various makes and firearms. Nowadays, I don't even bother going to a local gun store to check out other carry options because I know I will be disappointed with something. Lol man i hate thinking this way.
I dunno why i made this post but perhaps i will eventually be more open minded. I even feel that i don't need another 1911 because the one i have is my range toy AND carry weapon. How blasphemous is that?
Ya'll have a great weekend!
