Here is my criteria:
1. It must be able to shoot lead hard cast bullets.
2. I would like to get into some competition shooting for fun.
3. I really want something accurate but I don't care for the 1911 platform.
4. It has to be totally reliable, it will double for a home defense gun.
I have had a Springfield 1911A1 loaded, it was accurate, however, I do not like the grip safety.
