    I am not of the mind to stash a nice production pistol without shooting it because it has a particular roll mark on it. I doubt the collector value will increase greatly over the years that you could have been enjoying shooting your pistol. I would go ahead and shoot it. I see no reason to save it in pristine condition so that someone you do not know can shoot it after you are dead and gone. You have two nice 1911 pistols. Enjoy shooting them.


    If you want to save it for a child or grandchild, the situation is a little different.

    Nice shooting. I don't have a Commander in 9mm, but I'll bet it will be fine. I think Bill Wilson carries one so it must work Ok. I think Dan Wesson is making Valors and V-Bobs in 9mm more now. Plus they have the aluminum framed Guardians if you want to carry something lighter. Or just go with another Wilson if the budget allows.

    The best shooting 9mm 1911 I have shot was a Wilson. A Wilson trigger and 9mm? It shoots like buttah.....:)

    I just saw an advertisement for a Ruger SR1911 Target model. Has anyone got any information on it being put through its paces?
