    Buy any 1911 and then decide what you want.
    RIA
    Metro arms
    ATI
    Springfield
    Colt
    Kimber
    etc.............
    Just buy one and shoot it. Your life as far as owning pistols will never be the same.

    I hope you wore a condom because the 1911 disease is just like herpes, it last for ever.

    It was a S&W. Pretty basic model but I loved it. The grip was so much thinner than my Glock 20 and I shot it very well. I haven't been shooting in months but I was shooting that thing like it was just natural. I never understood why people loved them so much but after about five shots I totally got it. What are some of the better deals out there? Are there any models to avoid for reliability? So far I own two Glocks (19&20) and a S&W 642 but might need a 1911 soon.

    Here was a target. I decided it was time to train for the coming zombie apocalypse.

    Ain't that the truth! Because of the 1911, I have sold off 18 other hand guns.
