Default Where's all the CMP As Issued match shooters?

OK all you CMP 1911 owners, whose shooting theirs in the "1911 As-Issued" CMP matches or plans too? I've shot both the D-Day and T600 matches at TMP and haven't noticed one other actual Govt model being used, just commercial "equivalents." Didn't do anything to pistol except a new recoil spring. Fun challenge.

I've shot action pistol for about 20 years, had never fired a "bullseye" pistol match but figured what the hell else am I going to do with it? "As-Issued" match it is. Bronze both matches so far (just missed silver by 1 pt last week).

Hope to see some more of you at the 2020 D-Day match.

No doubt the ratio of buyers to competitors will be be the same, if not worse than the M1 side.

Yes..... I too suspect the shooter/collector ratio is quite low.
Most 1911 bidders (or whatever you wish to call them) were collectors, not shooters.

Yes, I fit in that category I’m afraid.

I love these old warhorses and would compete if I could but I’m unable to go prone on the M1 side of the house and for pistol competition I do IDPA rather than bullseye.

I use mine to shoot Steel Challenge.. Old girl has held her own with the exception of a few hiccups. CMP matches are on the 2020 list of things to do.

I'm with ya on that, I've shot action pistol matches since '98. Pistols are for fighting your way to a rifle or out of a fight. So "bullseye pistol" always seems kinda silly honestly. But then, seemed only right to shoot the as-issued 1911 in the as-issued 1911 match.
