Well, the 1911 itch has been bad.. I picked up a new PM-9 recently, like it but then found this Specialist commander 9mm for a steal, and I had to have it too.

I like it more than the PM-9, just points so naturally. They really make a nice 1911..I better stop now..haha

I'm torn between a Hudson H9 or Dan Wesson next.


I have the itch bad, will be in the next week or two.

There is no softer shooting 9mm pistol than a 9mm 1911. That combined with one of the best triggers available, makes these pistols extremely easy to shoot well with.

Dan Wesson and S&W are two manufacturers that I'm interested in at the moment in the 9mm 1911 market.

Dan Wesson is a great choice for a 1911, but so is Springfield-Armory. Both companies make quality 1911s, and both offer them in 9mm as well.

Very nice. I have owned two Dan Wesson 1911s in the past - they were awesome.

I kinda want a 9mm Valor, but don't have the cash for one right now

Funny you mention Springfield.. this is my main plinker, a Springfield Loaded Target 9mm. I believe it has about 1400 rounds through it now, I got it last December and it's only had two Winchester White box related ammo malfunctions in that time.

It's a pleasure to shoot, but the commander 1911 in 9mm is my favorite. I put a heavier spring in the Springfield, just felt too light from the factory.

I've shot few hundreds round with a friend PM-9 excellent gun super nice high quality and tight fit no doubt.

Regarding a soft shooting 9-MM you should really try a CZ Shadow-2 what a gem for about $200 less.

I realized as I have a few 1911s, a shiny stainless 75B I never shoot, I needed a nice DA/SA target gun that is somewhat practical, and that's the reason I put the PM9 on consignment. The Shadow 2 is a sweetheart. I hope the .22 upper is available soon for it!

I have a CZ-75 SA, and while it is very soft shooting as well, I wouldn't put it on the same level as a 1911 in the same caliber.

If the Shadow II is softer shooting than a 1911 in 9mm, that is saying something. I focus more on the defensive side than the competition side of pistols, but I assumed it was just a dressed up CZ-75.

The Shadow 2 is a different animal than a 75, I had a 75 SAO for several years. The Shadow is heavier, and it has a buttery smooth trigger. I don't consider the 75B snappy, but the Shadow is much softer shooting, but it has a chunky frame to thank for that. It feels slightly nose heavy, but it sure shoots well.
