    So my best friend is looking to get his first 1911. He wants to get a .45 and spend under $700. Help please.

    I agree with Bac's post. The STI and DE1911 pretty much put everything else in the range to shame. The RIA is a good bang for the buck though, but you get more with the other two

    Full size, nightstand duty. I told him to look at used, but he wants no part of it... I have a RO and am going to let him shoot it, but he thinks that the adjustable sights are a waste. Personally for nightstand use (in my opinion) a RIA would suffice. Is that correct?
