    I try really hard not to spew out my opinions while inside the local gun shops. That is unless I am asked.

    Anyway. I was near the gun counter yesterday. There was a guy who was looking for and asking questions about 1911 and .45 acp.

    He seemed to have a good idea of what he was looking for.

    He was asking about the officers model size, comparing recoil to a commander and gov length.

    The guru behind the counter told him the officers model is really hard to shoot accurately compared to the full size 1911.

    Enter my big mouth.:::
    I said, almost under my breath to myself, "not really". I got a what ? look.
    So I said , I shoot an Officers ACP a lot and yes there is a little difference but not that much as to call the OACP really hard to control.
    It is a matter of practice.

    If you were the perspective buyer, I apolagize to you.

    I will grant ya'll my 5"ers are more accurate in my hands.
    I am sure there several arguable reasons why.
    I love my Officers ACP. I also plan to carry it .... post/ MO CCW.

    coincidently this is the very same shop that lost all of my future gun purchases. A couple of years ago I was in the market for a new Remington 870. I stopped in for a look and was promptly told you don't want that. And anything less than the Browning is inferior to it. Admittedly the browning is a fine scattergun. But I grew up with my Dad's 870.
    So I went else where and paid cash.

    I hope my confession doesn't make me a hyprocrite.
    I just had too!!!!
