My favorite duty weapon was a Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP. It was nickel and I was know by a certain faction of the community as "the cop with the shiny gun." When I went to suits I switched to a Glock 19 because it didn't have a hammer to catch on the lining on my coats.

Kimber 1911 .45 ACP Custom Shop! Out of all the hand guns that I have, the Kimber is by far my favorite.

beauty.. Nicer than I need, I'm very much function first... I'm just wondering how I'd like the more angled handgrip of those compared to others that are more "square".. how they'd fit my hand, etc

Looks to be the same as the Ruger 22-45. Has the same angle as the 1911 and basically all the other safety mag release locations similar to the 1911.

Nesi, I thought I was getting grips like on the one JTrent posted when I ordered this gun. The grip is a handful for me and I have larger than average hands.

Not happening unless one gets up around the house. I like the adrenaline rush when I almost step on one in the wild. :D

For assassinations: the Remington XP-100 with .221 Fireball cartridges
The gun reputed to have delivered the kill shot from the grassy knoll on JFK.
Manufactured 1963 - 1997 and considered the best long range handgun of it's time.

Charlie Harrelson claimed he fired the shot from the sewer.

Chauncey Holt 1921-1997
In his supposed 'death bed' confession after learning he had cancer, Holt claimed in the 50s-70s he worked as an
accountant for Meyer Lansky (1902-1983) and in addition to delivering money to and from CIA and mafia front
companies from European banks and the Federal Reserve, he also claimed to specialize in forging documents
supervising graphic artists.

Holt says he rode from Arizona to Dallas with Charles Nicoletti (1916-1977) a dual operative of the CIA and Mafia boss
Sam Giancana of Chicago. He arrived in the parking lot behind the grassy knoll and a man came up to him and said,
"I'm Harrelson" and he then handed the man phony Secret Service credentials in the name of Calvin Harper and a case containing a hand gun. Holt also claims he delivered a hand gun and additional credentials including a pilot's license
in the name of Charles Robertson to a man he knew as "Richard Montoya."
Holt did not believe the guns he delivered were used in the assassination.
"As to whether Montoya was really Charles Rodgers I would not hazard a guess, despite the statement of others."

Chauncey Holt claimed he, Charles Harrelson (1938-2007) and "Montoya" were "the 3 tramps" found hiding in a boxcar.
Charles Harrelson denied he was one of the 3 tramps.

My favorite to shoot us the kimber custom match 2 in 45 acp. I have 3 that I rotate carry. Lcp 380 glock 19 and Springfield xds 45. I like the glock the best because I'm left handed and it's ambidextrous.

If you want truly ambidextrous you need a wheel gun!
