Weight isn't really a concern with most LEOs for a handgun. The issue with ammunition capacity is where I would have a problem carrying a 1911. Some people don't mind it, but it's something I would rather not have to worry about. That, and 1911s are finicky guns. Some can be very reliable, but they don't have the reliability that modern combat/duty pistols have.
