When I began carrying a few years ago, I started taking regular shooting/CCH classes, and the 1911 and .45 were always well-represented in those classes. It's what I was usually shooting, too. In the last 2 or 3 years I see a definite shift away from both, and it's common now to see no .45s or 1911s in a class. Personally I've shifted to 9mm and .40 Glocks for most of my shooting (still have all my 1911s though). Do you see the same? Have you personally shifted away from the .45 and/or 1911?
