    Picked up my first 1911 this past weekend at the Indy 1500 gun show...I had been researching and looking for about 6 months now and had decided on a Springfield Loaded Champion in Stainless....we looked around for 2 hours or so and all I had been able to find were either full size, in crappy condition, over priced, or a combination of the last 2.....finally I found exactly what I was looking for a used, but in PERFECT condition with Trijicon night sights....picked it up, checked it out, worked all the mechanisms, took it apart real quick, and bought it for $600 cash OTD....came with the holster and mag pouch, and only one mag but it still had the Loaded Coupon in the case so I will be stocking up on $12 mags....I will get some pics up later today after I get done with it at the range for the first time
