    You could turn that pistol into a monster, but in the beginning you will learn how to shoot it competently.

    You won't pay more than 5-800$ for a milspec, depending on the manufacturer. I got one for my brother a while ago for 400$. Springfield Armory too.

    I have a Kimber TLE. Remember, a 1911 is the "Ferrari" of pistols. High performance, high maintenance required. A TLE is probably over 1000$.

    SOCOM (and special forces) don't use 1911s.
    Not a fan of 1911's. Just think, they were invented in 1911, I think technology has evolved. I'll take my H & K USP .45 anyday over a 1911.

    So would I. In fact, I'd take a whole myriad of pistols over a 1911.

    Haha yes it is. I'll take being able to throw 13 rounds of .45 ACP at the bad guy(s) than impress them my nice ivory grips. IMO good looks is all 1911's have going for them. More of an heirloom than practical.

    They're still practical, but if you want to be "tactical", 1911's aren't the way to go. I'd rather have certain revolvers than 1911's. ****, the revolvers are more reliable, anyway.

    Hell yeah. My S & W 642 .38 special +p is like my American Express card. I don't leave home without it.

    What is the function of the "rail" on the barrel of the ar 15?

    Green tip - it'll take me 3-4 hits to drop that target at 150 - 300 yards. 300, the problem will if the target is static or not.

    If I'm using something with a higher grain and/or a copper core, 200 yards becomes no problem. 300 yards is kind of my effective limit with a short barrel.

    I also have used a 14.5", and that's easy. 300 yards all day. After 300 yards, I'd rather have my 7.62, which would be 1 and done all day.
    skill can mitigate a multitude of sins. sounds like you get some range time in.

    Rail has multiple functions, one being the ability to cool down the barrel quicker. Another is that it's built around the barrel so the barrel remains "free floating" which increases the accuracy. Close up it doesn't matter, but the further out you go, the better the MOA. Then they're all built for attachments. You can customize your rifle out the wazoo now.

    A little. I just got rid of a rifle that had 14,000+ rounds through it. Always keep a shot book for your weapons.
