I forgot about the goofy trigger on the G2, that's a thing. Once I got used to it it's not so bad and it seemed to get better as the gun was used, but very weird at first.
I had a Rock Island compact 1911 in 9mm. It was my favorite gun to shoot at the range, before I too lost all of my guns in a tragic canoeing accident. Forgot to mention that before. I used to handload powder puff rounds for it. That, the single action trigger, and its weight (all steel) made for an extremely easy shooting gun. Even with full power rounds it was pretty tame. I think Rock Island makes pretty nice stuff and wouldn't hesitate to get another one. I'd like to get a full-size 45 1911 one of these days.
ND switched to constitutional carry a few years ago. I don't remember exactly when. I did my CCW permit back about 10 years ago for two reasons. First, I saw a news article where they observed there weren't many CCW permits issued in ND against the total population and concluded that meant that there weren't many firearms or people interested in using them. The article was about resistance to legislating restrictions on CCW, gun ownership, etc. and their logic was creating these laws would only affect a minority of nutjobs so go ahead and vote yes for your safety. I thought I'd do my part to help the statistic reflect reality. Second, it cleans up firearms transport. In ND, you could drive around with handguns, rifles, as many ARs you could stack up out in the open in your vehicle, as long as they were unloaded. "Concealed" weapons were not allowed without a permit and "concealed" wasn't well defined. So if you had a shotgun riding in your front seat and threw your jacket on it, maybe even partially, that weapon could now be interpreted as "concealed." I hunted a lot and I saw the possibility of some misunderstanding there; with the CCW, no misunderstanding basically anything goes. I can't honestly remember a single time actually carrying any of my guns around anywhere on my person in a holster or otherwise before or after my permit.
No idea what Florida laws are like, I'll have to do some research.
