And I went with what I believe one of their least common modern gun. EMP4 CCC
It's in CA jail for another week, before I can take it to the range. 99% of the time I CC Colt Combat Commander 45, and I hope the EMP4 can fill the 1% needs of a lighter gun, and cheap ammo day in the range.

Welcome to the forum Neo1911. Looking forward to your range report once your weapon is released from jail.

A 9mm is certainly cheaper to shoot than a .45.

I鈥檓 well aware of this:) although I鈥檓 more concerned that the lunges blowers don鈥檛 carry enough energy to stop LAs zombies quick enough. Picked up today, I鈥檒l take it to the range Friday.
LOL, then the best option is a Desert Eagle .50 call. Mags are a bit small, at best 7 rounds.

If it could only shoot 7 rounds without jamming next are to find 1911 in 38 Special and 10mm, and I鈥檒l be a complete person:)
Of the few handguns owned, several makes and models, not one over thousands of rounds ever jammed.
Kimber, CZ, STI, Caspian, and a few more. Yes cleaned after every shoot, extractors replaced annually plus hammer and recoil springs + magazine springs. Mags cleaned every month of powder and dropping into dirt.
Trigger spring on CZ were replaced as well as firing pins. All used in competitions and only used reloads, 9mm+pp and .38 super, major P/F
Always shoot in first 1000- 1500 rounds. All my pistols sold after 4 years, except my CZ, Czechmate, 11 years old now still has original barrel.

Maintenance is always the key.
As an addendum to my post yesterday i failed to mention i always ream out the barrel chamber by 1 thou. As well as replace recoil spring and hammer springs by springs 3-4 lbd lighter.
AS Neo1911 stated, maintenance is always a key as many issues can be found during intermittence.

Range report: 300 rounds split between 115,124,147 defensive mix brands, and 115,124 fmj 3 brands. 0 malfunctioned! Well鈥 I lost the fiber optic at the second mag I always preferred a quality steel sight, but I鈥檒l give it another chance once the new fiber comes in the mail. Also the sighs are about 1鈥 to the right from 7 yards. I鈥檒l fix it in the next range day.

If fitted correctly a red or green fiber optic shooting during daylight hours is in my opinion better than iron sights.
Also once fitted will or should, and it has for me on 3 pistols lasted some 2 years.
Also when i practice i shoot 7, 10 and 20 yards. As ling as I hit the A zone i am happy. To me speed and close proximity beats a bulls eye, 10.
Small inner target set at 20 yards, from the draw at less than 1.5 seconds.
