Defender, I've done some research on the Ruger and I thought the pistol was DA/SA. Well it D/A and S/A only when you pull the hammer back from what I get out of the info I've read. I hate a DAO pistol. Thr Ruger is OFF THE LIST.
I've been looking at the S&W 1911's and the Colts too. I can pick one up for around $850. We went to a gun shop today and checked out their prices and WOW. An S&W 1911 was $1,100. Big differance between gun shops.
I'm also considering a Beretta 96 or the smaller Beretta "in the .40 caliber.
