Sums it up pretty nicely IMO. First 1911 is to learn the platform, play with it, scratch it and don't stress up to much.
Later on, while one is reacher with all the experienced gained on the first, cheap pistol he can always upgrade to the good quality American made firearm. Probably the less expensive American made 1911 would be Ruger or Auto Ordnance (I'm not sure if that one is actually produced in the USA).
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.
