Great gun...if you're in a position to drop $2500 on one pistol.

Love those things though. The EB Kobra Carry and DW Pointman 7 initiated my "gun lust" when I first began researching pistols.

The lovely Mrs DanF found one in the newspaper used.
We got it for $1800. Included the Ed Brown range bag, 4 mags, shoulder holster rig, IWB, and mag carrier.

Who sez it has to be new?

I know everyone else likes the M&P, Sig, and XD, but I love my Ruger P345, its accurate, light wieght and I promise you the trigger is way better than the M&P, XD, or CZ, the only problem I've had with it is the mag safety, and its so easy to remove its like Ruger meant for it to be removed, and its fed everything I've ran through it

I know the 1911 is a very popular gun, I have one myself. But im looking for a dual role .45. I want to be able to where it consealed as well. How is the handling on the sig P220? M&P? Are the easily able to handle follow up shots or is the recoil too great for rapid deployment?

Have you considered a Commander sized 1911, maybe something like a Kimber Pro Carry II? You might want to look at the FNP45, Sig Saurer, Springfield Champion GI 1911a1, and Springfield XDm's.

I just bought my second Ed Brown Special Forces 1911 last week. The first one was just the standard black with rosewood and I got it for $2020 on GA + $15 for shipping and my ffl's fee. Awesome pistol, I carry it daily, and I sold a nice Kimber to get it. More accurate than any other pistol I own save for my Python which is an entirely different story. I have several Glocks which I also like but the Ed Brown gets worn unless I'm going to the beach or on my Goldwing (G36).

Sure I end up wearing a T-shirt and overshirt but who ever said I was stylish in the first place? My wife would rather I look like a dweeb and carry a full size 1911 than look stylish with a 380 or 9mm on me. That 5" handles SXT 230+P all day long and I doubt there is much that would stand up to a couple of those, much less three mag's full. And as far as weight, you do get used to having that on you if you carry daily. I once almost had to draw down on a drunk and was carrying a 9mm at the time. Since then, I only carry a 45, 357SIG, or 357mag. I never felt more insecure than thinking I was about to have to fight for my wifes and my life with a 9mm.

Not sure about the Sig but I have the M&P and it's very manageable. Follow ups aren't troublesome depending on how fast you're trying to get them out.

Im certainly considering the M&P, especially for the price versus the Sig, but I havnt handled one yet. The closest rental place is an hour away.

Sig most definitely makes several 1911's. I am a Sig fan (P245 P226 P239) so I am obviously pro-Sig, but only because they have all been high quality dependable firearms. Yes, they are expensive, but you can't put a $ value on yourself or family....JMHO.

Ruger also has a new 1911 that I have heard great things about from a friend that I shot with for over 20 years. If he says its good, I can take it to the bank.

Happy searching. Go to a range a shoot several and see what you like.
