I went to Sportsmans Warehouse today, to pick up some practice ammo for my Glock 19, and of course I couldn't help but stop at the gun counter to do some drooling! They had 1 Taurus PT1911 in stock, and I asked to look at it. It felt nice in my hands, and the sights were great. I looked at the price tag, and my heart sank when I found out they were asking $779 I can get a Springfield Loaded Model for a few bucks more. Anyone know for sure if the Taurus 1911 is about the same price as other semi-custom 1911s now?
