Guys and gals, it's about THAT time.
Aside from their looks, I've never really been a huge fan of 1911's. For the last month or so, I've been having this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I need one! Far as pistols go, I have at least two guns in the following calibers: .25, .380, 9mm, 357sig, 38spcl, 40, and .45. I also have these among different brands (though I love Glocks, not every handgun I own is a Glock :yup:). So I already have tons of .45 ammo, which is what I'd like the 1911 chambered in.
I'm at the point in my (hand)gun ownership where I need to feel 'complete'. In order for me to do so, I need to pick up one in .22, .32, and 357mag but more to the point.. a 1911!
To keep this somewhat short, I'll start off by saying that I've sold a few guns and still to this day regret it, so I've vowed to never sell another functional/repairable gun ever again. So with that being said, I'd like to pick up a 1911 that's affordable. That way, worst scenario, if I don't fall in love with the platform and it just sits in the safe forever, I can still feel okay with the purchase.
I've heard many'a great things about RIA. Can anybody suggest a model of theirs or even perhaps a different brand? I don't need any of the extras, just a good ole standard one. I have no preferences on length and weight. I have no comfort problems when it comes to concealing full size handguns. I'd like to stay under $700. That's the most I can justify spending on a weapon I may not grow to love but still keep.
Oh, almost forgot, I'm completely clueless about 1911s. :icon_neutral:
