    1911itis

    With 3 Kimber 1911's in the stable already I felt the need to go looking at 1911's today. Wanted something that was not a high end pistol and was thinking an RIA. Well what I found after handling many 1911's today was the Taurus PT 1911. If you would of told me I would buy a Taurus 1911 today I probably would have laughed at that idea, but it seems to be a pretty quality built gun. Will get out and shoot it in the morning. So here she is 1911 #4 for the collection. Sorry about the poor pics.

    Whats MSRP on those things? $600 ball park.. I bet you could spent $100 and make that thing very very reliable.. They seem to have good reviews.

    FWIW, there is a 'nutnfancy' review on youtube pointing out a lot of positive/negative points.

    I got the same bug, working on a Wilson Combat deal right now. I have a Taurus 1911.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

    Yep 6 bills and tax out the door. First thing I can see getting changed is that goofy hammer with the lock on top of it.

    Looks like a temporary solution to a permanent problem to me...

    That's funny the money for this gun came from part of the money from selling one of my Winchester lever guns. It was an 1894 take down made in 1916 in 25-35. Gave a friend of mine a real good deal on it.
