I'd really like to add some more handguns to my collection and something over 9mm which is all I have (apart from some .22 target pistols, fun!) All my buddies love their 1911's but all my buddies also have well over a grand into theirs.. I'm not looking at anything crazy like that cause honestly I'd be looking at an HK over a 1911 if I was looking at spending that kinda money on a single pistol.
So I was wondering what you all think would be a good still reliable, well made 1911 .45, maybe something not so good that you'd trust carrying it, but maybe it would be good enough, although I don't have that purpose cause I already have my dedicated G26, comp-tac IWB, night sight rig for that. I'm just looking for one to get me into the .45 league and having fun with on the range.
One person suggested a Taurus is a good all around performer, maybe someone an go into detail on it, but I've never really considered to be that good, rather hit and miss in my experience.
EDIT: also someone suggested before a Springfield GI, a get the job done 1911 that isn't all dress and jacked up price like a custom or something like a Kimber. Not really sure what the going price is on the GI though.
