    Talking Gave in and ordered a 1911

    Well a few weeks ago when I bought my sig p250, I was going back and forth between it, and a Springfield Armory 1911 GI for the same price. After doing the research and actually handling the weapon, I discovered the sights on the GI were not what wanted so I bought the p250 and decided to wait untill I could afford a little more well equipped 1911.

    I found a Para GI Expert at Bud's for $535 shipped, and just couldnt pass it up, ordered it tongiht, I'll post pics when it arrives

    You need to be know that to many of us 1911s are a addiction. Enjoy yours, but don't say I didn't warn you.

    Yup, you are gonna have to also get a 3" Ultra, a Commander, and a Loaded just to get started!

    Browning knew his stuff. Pistol is very flat, making it concealable.

    Congratulations... But no, it's not possible to own just one.

    Congrats! I think the 1911 is to guns, what Harleys are to motorcycles. You just need to own one to understand.
