So, me and my buddy went to demo day at one of our LGS yesterday. The showing wasn't as good as last year, but there was some good stuff there. I shot a Kimber Solo and was pleasantly surprised with it, and shot a few STI guns as well. They were okay, didn't see anything special with them. I also shot a TRP that was a nail driver, but had a FTE every round. Anyways, on to the part I am going to catch hell for. I was at Taurus' table and thought WTH I will shout the PT1911. I wanted to see how horrible it was and why everyone talked so much crap about them. Well, it shot just as accurately as the TRP (without any issues). Now I am not saying it is in the same class as the TRP, BUT I definitely think for the $$$ it is a great firearm, you can find em all day long for $500.00 or less. I think it is a far better entry level 1911 that a RIA. This being said, I don't plan on going out and buying one. I am just saying it is not the POS everyone says it is, and seems to be a great bang for the buck. Flame on!
