Gentlemen: I am willing to spend $1500 on a 1911 -45 caliber handgun! This handgun will be at my bedside for home protection! I have some experience from the Marines in shooting 1911's! Here's what I am hoping to get in a 1911- (1) reliability (2) both take-down & assembly is fairly easy (3) a 4 to 41/4 inch barrel (4) will spend up to $1500 I am strongly against 1911's that are difficult to take apart & assemble! I have dreamed of having a 1911 that's both comfortable to shoot and a 1911 that's easy to care for and yet in time of crisis you can bet your life on it. What Brand & Model would fit what I am looking for? Thank-you for your recommendation! __________________ Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
