    I'm in the market to enter into the 1911 world but haven't seen a whole lot in any of the couple shops I've been to. Does anyone know of any shops in the Raleigh area that has a variety of 1911s to check out?

    Mace Sports in Mebane, NC has a pretty nice selection. A bit more of a drive from Raleigh than Personal Defense, but would be worth the drive.
    They have a large selection of guns and usually a decent number of 1911's. There is an inventory list for new and used guns that they have in stock on their website, that is usually kept up to date well.

    You might want to check out Ed's Gun Shop in Vass....just off highway 1 between Sanford and Southern Pines. Last time I was there Ed had a good variety of 1911s and Ed has some of the better prices around. He also has a website, so you could just check on his forum and ask what he has in stock. I believe.

    Sovreign Guns in Fuquay Varina is a new store that has only been open
    a few months. They are located downtown on Main Street and they have
    a good selection of just about anything, including 1911's. The staff also
    seems to be friendly and helpful. They might be worth checking out.
