In keeping with my prior post this post shows my 1911 .22 Pistols. Top left is my former carry a Colt 1911 Commander in .45 ACP. I purchased the Commander size 1911 in .22 below it years ago to be able to shoot more and have an additional practice gun with the same controls as my Carry.
Top right is my new carry. Colt 1911 Agent in .45 ACP and in keeping with my practice routine I just got the Browning 1911 .22 shown bottom right.

I've always enjoyed having a .22 understudy to my guns. It gives a lot more opportunity for trigger time, can often save some money, reduces the need for extra stuff like holsters and mag carriers, etc. Back in my revolver days, I probably put 10 times as many rounds of .22 through my S&W Mdl 18 (4" K-frame) than I did the duty gun in .357, and it made me a much better shooter.
