Every store around here carries 1911s from several different manufacturers. I paid about $700 for my Compact and it's been worth every penny. I've never heard of a dissatisfied Kimber owner.

I can concur with that statement from multiple upon multiple reviews/talking to people. I'm sure Cane could tell you all about 1911's.

He's a Colt guy who's feelings are hurt over Colt's recent recalls.

The advice from others about trying different weapons is advice worth its weight in gold. And, if finances are in question, use that with what you find from shooting multiple weapons in your decision. Definitely don't go cheap as spittinfire and pioneer461 noted. You want a weapon that is good quality and gives YOU the value you want. Hopefully you'll find something that feels good in your hand and doesn't cost an arm and a leg and half your left nut. I'm lucky enough to have a decent paying job so on the occasions the "urge" hits me (like it did today), I can afford to splurge on a new "toy" here and there.
