full sized 1911 to 3" 1911 transition?
Just curious what others' experiences have been? I'm contemplating changing my carry handgun up from a G23 to a compact 1911. I shoot a full sized 1911 considerably better, more consistently, than I do the G23. A lot has to do with my grip. I have to think a lot more about it with the G23 than with the 1911.
Granted, practice helps with that, however the Kimber carry guns I've handled have all felt a lot more "natural" to me than my G23.
For those who've done it, did a good fit with a full size 1911 (I have GI M1911A1) tend to translate to similar comfort/ease of use with a compact version?
