In that price range he'll do good, but I wouldn't put everything into a low end 1911 for home defense.

My .02
thanks guys he ended up getting this



price tag said $700 but i have bought guns from the guy in the past we ended up getting it for $640 out the door, also ordered some hogue grips for it, we will shoot it next week hopefully. Then we will post up a range report

That's a right good price. I think mine was a little over $700 new in stainless. It is also a really good shooter and is about as accurate as you will find right out of the box. Taurus produces a very good pistol and you get the PT 1911 with a lot of amenities that others only get in the custom shop.
Another that i like even better and is my carry gun is the Kimber Ultra Compact II Stainless in .45. It too is an excellent shooter.

A friend of mine has the stainless taurus as well. I've shot it and it is a good shooter for the money. I've seen that model around for pretty close to that price too.

Next time we go to the range we'll put his taurus up against the CZ75b and see how it performs. Him shooting both and me shooting both. Slow, accuracy shots. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully we'll be able to do this friday.

made some upgrades today
new hogue grips and extended slide release







the range report, i wish i could post pictures but getting them off my dang i phone is rediculous, i didnt bring the camera because i thought that would be fine but any way, as soon as i get the pictures off the phone i will post the, gun was very accurate, we loved shooting it, we ran a couple hundred rounds through it and it only had 2 hang ups, when the last bullet was being ejected, it shot very well. We were unable to find an open range today so we went out to a canal so not really any targets, just the beer cans from the locals
