No I have not. The most I've shot is a .40 XD and a .38 Special.

And while I love the 1911 and will buy an Operator some day...but it is overpriced you can't deny that. But I mean it's worth it though if you are into the pistol very much. Frankly I hate damn Nato....we had to switch to the lackluster M9. Seeing that Baby Eagle in .45....I'd personally rather have that than a 1911 more rounds and looks better IMO and more accurate from some studies and it's fricken Spike's gun from BeBop.

All I need then is Lupin the 3rd's Walther P38 and I'd have an anime convention on my belt.

That explains a lot.

Yes. Yes I can deny it. Are they expensive? Yes. Are you getting what you are paying for if you get a finely tune one? Yes.

It's like buying a car. You can get a Mustang. But don't expect to outrun or outperform a Porsche. Do they both do the same basic thing, right? But they are each built for a specific purpose....

Hey, I love me a mustang, I have had four of them, 2 of which were Cobras - but don't tell me it can run with a Porshce because I have personally tried that little feat and it didn't work out too well for me.

I like the 1911 and will own one...but I just believe that to get a good one 1000 bucks is a bit much for a handgun...when I can get a very good pistol that functions and is possibly more accurate for 400 dollars less than the other one which costs 1000-1200 dollars for the same features.

You lips are moving, but really it's just going blah, blah, blah, blah on this end.

You haven't experienced a quality 1911 - so therefore we are going to have to agree to disagree until you have had the life experience needed to take this conversation any further....

I'm not saying it's better or not better. From the looks of things I like both weapons and will buy a Baby Eagle an a 1911...but being 18 it's kind of hard to purchase and shoot handguns.

Steven Seagal prefers the 1911. I think this resolves the discussion.

Steven Segal prefers using people's limbs to teach them geometry.
