Since I have time to kill, I've been looking at "next gun" - and the Tanfoglio Witness looks like a nice pistol. Really I am pondering trading my Rock Island 1911 Tac II in and using some of the cash toward the Witness (but that's another story).
Anyway, anyone here have/shoot the Witness? I like the all steel - for me makes it much more of a pleasure to shoot (possible becuase I shoot better with a heavy gun). Bud's has it for $336 (but no stock), so it's not super fancy gun. I have no plans of carrying it; purely a range gun. I was holding out for a while for a Surplus Beretta 92f (figured it would be a fun "project" gun - I like to tinker), but the prices on them just went up and up so I forgot about it. The Tanfoglio seems to be a "similar" priced option and I get a new gun with a safety system I like better (well, I like better than tradional CZ's anyway).
Really just looking for opions from people who OWN these pistols (I can do my own web reading/youtube watching/pondering). If you did one of those, "I got it and liked it, but then I got an xyz, and I never shot the Witness again," I would way rather hear about that story.
I have big hands/long fingers - when I hold most handguns my fingers go completely around the grip and end up pushing into my palm (annoying). Interestingly, the gun that I do not have that problem with is the single stack 1911 - go figure. If you have theWitness, or the Jericho, or some "CZ varient" and you ahve big hands, how do you find the grip?
Thanks for the advice and opinions.
