I have shot the 1911 for 22 yrs and have become very proficient with the system. I take a LOT of professional training classes and I have seen a LOT of very expensive gunsmith tuned 1911's give their owners countless stoppages and malfunctions.
I have never seen a student with a Berretta 92 have any stoppage but shooting dry!
Dislosure: I personally do not like the Berretta, SIG is my modern wonder nine- DA/SA system of choice when I am not using the 1911.
