I view 1911s as more of a work of art than anything. I don't have the money to spend $2000 on a handgun, but if I did, I'd have no problems buying one.
I don't carry a 1911, because they are heavy and the grip safety is a negative for a defensive pistol, but I love the trigger and everything about the gun. IMHO, a Glock is the perfect carry weapon, but I do get bored with them.
I'm sure Hi-Point fans wonder why we spend so much on Glocks when a Hi-Point throws bullets down range too.
