Since my retirement from law enforcement (LE), I am not required to carry a specific make or model of gun anymore. That’s a nice change for me, because my favorite pistol of all time is a full-size 1911. So when I turned in my department-issued pistol and received my official ID, indicating my LE "retirement status," I started carrying my full-size Springfield Armory® 1911 TRP™.
It may seem odd to most, but I have grown very fond of and comfortable with the added weight of the full-size, steel-framed 1911.
Stay tuned for how Springfield Armory®'s new Range Officer® Elite Champion™ factors into my daily-carry routine.
