Testing Three Short 1911s from Kimber, Ruger, and SIG Sauer
These Commander-size pistols offer a lot to the concealed carry licensee no pinched buttocks or sagging pants, to name just two advantages. They also happen to shoot pretty darn well.
Some accuse 1911 fans of believing the sun rises and sets on the big 45 ACP. And it is a certainty that the full-size pistol has played an important role in many lives as a badge of office, tool of the trade, a lifesaver, a game taker, and a sporting instrument. Some claim that when their hands wrap around the 1911’s handle, it says “friend” like no other pistol. The 1911 has prevailed in innumerable engagements because it fits most hands well and features well-placed controls. Also, the 1911 fires a powerful cartridge, but not so powerful that most of us cannot control it.
