I have just started competing for fun in idpa and uspsa...1 match in one and 2 in the other. Really novice.
Had purchased and tweaked a cz p07 just for this purpose. But, while dependable, I can't hit Jack with it. My 1911, much better as well as my cz75b.
I would have to acquire a few more mags and get another holster ordered, but really thinking I might try my 1911 in stock single stack.
The firearm has been flawless with my reloads.
My instincts tell me to work it out with the p07, but am relishing the accuracy of the 1911, although not necessarily the mag changes.

them sneaky devils at CZ made this just for that , not like the CZ SP-01 wasn't good enough at the task.
course it does shoot them lil sissy 9 MM bollets!
This is one great shooting piece of steel for me.
course you can easily buy two PT1911 and have money fro ammo left over as well.

Gosh its interesting how the human body and mind is.
Now I am not a big Poly gun guy, but see nothing fits my hand better than a metal CZ, they just melt into my hand and fire so well and accurate for me and my old eyes.
But IF they gun doesn't work for you and you will enjoy competing more with the 1911 then go for it.
I mean if its to have enjoyment and not get bragging rights or trophys then the goal is accomplished.
The Taurus PT1911 is a pretty good choice for the beginner, now Springfield Armory makes a full sized 1911 that is designed for the beginner in competition and so is a much better choice and still coming in under 800 bucks.
heres a pic of mine and the most accurate 1911 that I have.
but the Pt1911 will work if you do your part.
Many people say its not the arrow but the archer, and to a certain level that's true but being a old competition archer I can also tell you that the quality of the Bow means quite a bit as well.

I agree with the archer not the arrow mindset. I to used to shoot competitive archery, as a youth. Field archery was fun and that was before compound bows had taken over.

oh yea!
MY competition bow was a Hoyt Pro medalist take down, a whopping 37 pounds and shot arrows that were about the size of a knitting needle.
Compounds made all the recurves go away except for the Olympics.
MY first compound was a hunting model that was 75 pounds with a 37-38 pound hold weight, I thought it was like created by GOD.
Anyway, the object is to improve your abilities and have a good time.
wish you luck.

Mine was a Groves breakdown. Think it was 32 pounds. I was a stringwalker.

I need to add some mags, another holster and mag carriers. Any 9mm 1911 mags to avoid? Already have a holster provider.

I started off shooting uspsa with my pt1911, loved it, didnt love the ammo cost, so switched to a pt92 cause 9mm is cheaper. I do reload, but am not made of money and competing every month runs up the ammo costs fast.
idpa i shoot with my pt111g2, the pt92 is a bit easier to hit longer ranges with, but, i figure idpa was built as a concealed carry exercise, so i might as well use the gun i carry.

a LOT of the people i shoot with use 1911's in 45acp, the other super popular gun is a glock, and they all seem to think you have to shoot 45 or nothing. they talk about things like the 9mm not having the power to get some targets moving as fast as a 45 and so on, i've personally never experienced this, and my times are on par with theirs.

big thing is, shoot what you enjoy shooting, if i didnt like shooting my pt92 as much as the 1911, i would never have switched off it, even with the ammo cost difference. if you have something you really like to shoot. go with it. the point of these competitions is to have fun.
