Had my first 1911 experience today.
Taurus PT1911 in black. 5.25' barrel, 8 round magazine. It was amazing; I mean, I knew 1911s were supposed to be cream of the crop, but holy **** (crap). The trigger was wonderful, the grip was good (my 24/7 has a little more room for my larger hands), and just the overall feel of a 1911 was... well, it was one of the best handgun experiences that I've had.
Now I have to get one. Just, please, nobody tell the missus.
