Went to my local gun shop / range to support a fund raiser for a sick little boy. Also happened to be STI day with a rep present in the store. Ended up walking out with an STI Guardian 1911 .45. Hey, it was a good deal for a good cause. I've been shooting .45's since 1982 and this one is possibly the best one I can ever remember shooting. http://www.stiguns.com/the-sti-guardian/ EDIT: Picture won't work so added link to STI website. Awesome gun.
