The thread about camping and 1911 got me alllll worked up to get a new 1911 and a 10mm at that! Keep it simple and the same manual of arms, plus I like having a grip safety. Without turning into a brand debate which 1911 10mm are known for their reliability and durability? I'd like to buy quality of course but want to keep the price down. Is there something in the 10mm 1911 world along the quality lines of a STI Spartan or Springfield Loaded? It's not going to be used for anything other than talking peaceful walks into the great unknown. And I thank all who mentioned 10mm 1911 in that other thread. Good enough reason to buy a new 1911!
