I took several of my Custom 1911's out of the safe today because it had been so long since i have shot them. I started thinking about all the money i spent and all the time spent waiting back in the late 80's and early 90's to get these guns done so they needed to be used. It took less than a magazine full of ammo for them to go right back in their pistol rugs. It is unbelievable how much difference there is between the shooting comfort of the 1911 style pistols and the CZ 97BE. There is just no comparison especially when firing full house .45 ACP ammo. I probably should sell all my .45 1911's because i know i am never going to shoot them again. The recoil of a .45 is not unpleasant or even existent to me but when trying to shoot at speed there is just no contest between the 2 guns.
