    1911s are communal critters, you cannot have just one, I know as I have seven of them. I have Colts, a Springfield, a Ruger, Kimber and one I built from parts, all run well are fun to shoot and I will trust my life to any one of them.

    I'd slap myself if I woke up in the morning and found I had bought a Kimber. When I buy another 1911 it will be a Springer.

    Hey Bug, I saw a Ruger at a gun show and for the money, good gun. The problem is, Ruger can't keep up with production and they are not going to expand until after the election. They said they could add another 100 jobs, but only added 10. Keep FL safe!

    Hey Bugdude check out the american classics. A lot of gun for the money...I have three of them and love them. I just picked up one the of stainless AC2 deluxe it has been great so far. They come with Novak style sights. Most of the time they are less than 500. They are more refined than the RIA....

    Thanks for the link to American Classics. They seem like a good midway point between the RIA and the Springers. I might have to check out the 22 model for a lot of inexpensive shooting fun. Like a dummy I sold my Browning Buckmark (wasn't trying, a buddy offered me 2x what I paid for it) and have been looking for another plinker. This might satisfy both my "needs" in one.

    I've been looking at 1911's. My first choice is Colt XSE or series 70. Two weeks ago, a LGS had a new Springfield RO. That sure was a fine weapon.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide

    Bugdude,

    I was looking over some guns this evening and came across a Remington 1911. It didn't look to bad for the money, of course I haven't read/heard anything good or bad about them, so someone else with more knowledge of this would have to step up and fill everyone in. It looks like they can be had for about 700 OTD.

    Nothing wrong with the Springfield either though.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I have 2 Range Officers, both are fantastic examples of the model. accurate, solid, reasonably reliable (it's a 1911). For the money it's the best deal out there.

    My wife bought me my first Kimber last year and loves it as much as I do. I now have two.
