In most cases, you're stuck between a DA/SA, a DAO, or a striker-fired DAO like Glocks, which I don't like all that much either, OR the newer DA systems in the XD (M) and the P250 (both of which are different) which are really nice and smooth.

And PO does nice things with 1911s. Double stacks are awesome. That said, a good single stack is all most people will need. If I can't hit you with 7-8 rounds of .45, 14 aren't gonna help much either.
And agreed V, hinge triggers on a 1911 is just weird.
And I want a snubby for some odd reason. .44 mag/special maybe. Or .357/.38.

I'm the same way, which is why my interests in handguns usually focus on striker fired pistols, DA revolvers, and the 1911 design (though I don't have one... yet)

Target from the range the other day. 10 yards, point-shoot double taps. Picked the locked and loaded pistol up and double tapped. Put down and repeat. Burned the last mag and a half fast, because I had to leave, those are the low and right ones. Didn't pull the trigger right on the fast strings. Still not bad for a beat up rental Sig and dirt cheap ball ammo.

Shooting in the house would be nice would it not. I just remembered to bring it in from the car, and I didn't have a camera at the range. Taped it to the nearest flat surface.

Doesn't look that hard either. Hell saw a youtube video of a guy doing t with a pot, what looked like a gravy ladle, and a mold.
