Totally agree. Took mine to Gunsite last year for an advanced pistol course and it performed flawlessly. Have to confess that the year before took my Glock Gen 5 19 and could say the same. Sometimes it's just about what you want, not necessarily function. Same about automobiles.I have the Wilson EDC X9, a great 1911ish 9mm. Although pricey, it a heck of a shooter, with adjustments from Wilson for a great fit.
