Let me hear your story on your favorite carry handgun.
Mine is my Colt M1991A1. It has been worked on by 2 of my favorite armors, Tom Beliveau and 1911 Tuner, (and some work by myself). The changes are a tritium front sight, Colt steel one piece trigger and Colt steel arched mainspring housing with a lanyard loop. Also a hard fit reduced radius firing pin stop rounded out what I consider the ideal carry pistol. Those along with the sentimental value mikes it priceless to me. It has been the subject of more than a few conversations I have had with Colt on carry pistols. I was with my mother when I bought it and it was sent home with her when she thought she might need it. The last time I went to the range with my father we shot it and I had it with me when he died. It has accompanied me on countless trips and been my ace in the hold should I ever need it.
It has saved me from a terrible beat down in the parking lot of somewhere I should not of been and I have taught countless classes with it. It has been my guinea pig for reloading experiments and got a few folks qualified for CCW along with being my edge in local pistol matches (and I need all the help I can get). It has also served as a conversation piece to educate people on gun safety and the right to carry. All that better than 15,000 rounds and never a pistol related failure. That pistol my friends is irreplaceable and my favorite carry pistol.
