I am not new to the 1911A1 as I started with one in the Army in 1980. I turned in my glock as of 6-1-14. No more plastic for me as I am returning to 1911A1 platform yeah! I am looking for advice from those on here who now more than I do which is probably just about everybody. I am going with either the Range Officer Champion 4" or the EMP 4" in 9mm not 45ACP. This pistol will be for daily carry across the country (HR 218). I am seeking input and advice from those who have actual experience with either actual pistol not some other model. Thanks for any and all replies.
