    If you trust your ability with your 1911 then by all means it is the best gun in the world for you, without a doubt stick with it.

    Guns are tools for self defense, and you wouldnt try to hammer a bunch of nails with a wrench right? Its as simple as carrying what you can shoot the best and then matching to the occasion or "Job". You have the right idea of the pistol being used to get you to rifle already.

    Have you thought about both? I carry a J-frame when going to a wedding, Ruger Sp101 when out and about in town, but a full sized CZ-P09 when I'm operating a tow truck at 2 a.m. If you don't like carrying more than one gun for different days, then don't. I got used to by having a rifle with a grenade launcher attached, rocket launcher, and pistol on me all at once, and switching between a revolver and an auto dosnt bother me at all. Some it would, if it does then dont do it. But its something to consider.

    If you dont like striker fired, dont get one. If you do like them, get one. Just be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of both and use it to fit your tool to its job. I like Hammers myself, im a single/double no safety kind of guy.

    You can argue about size and caliber with others, but yet again those things change depending on the person and things like age, eye sight, weight and height and physical capabilities. Maybe ideal laboratory test can be used to argue a preference for caliber, but the reality outside the lab is a shot from a .22 that hits does more damage to the target than a whole magazine of 45acp that misses.

    Fun fact, I have a friend that carrys a desert eagle. Lots of people think its silly when they hear it, but when they see he is 6 ft 8 and 300+ pounds and that he can palm a semi truck battery like a basket ball it makes more sense. He had trouble with a full sized Glock being too small for his hands and handles 50AE like most people handle 9mm. I mention it because people have a tendency to recommend things that work for them and not for the individual. I cant tell you what you like, you know yourself the best out of all of us, but I can say that when you find what works for you don't let others sway you away from it.

    I'm surprised that anyone owns a Desert Eagle that is reliable enough to be used as a carry gun! Training and practicing is going to get spendy with 50AE!

    You know as well as I do that he does not, in fact, train and practice with the DEagle in .50AE.

    carry the gun you are comfortable with, both physically and mentally. It should be something that you can wear all day with no issues. Practice with it a lot.
