Then I don't suggest getting a 1911. I suggest getting a smaller caliber like a 9mm and getting a smaller pistol.

59 series is also an aluminum frame so it cuts down on a lot of weight compared to a steel frame, only a little heavier than my Ruger SR-40

As said above it's generally bad practice to carry a sa with one in the tube. It's dangerous and too easy for an AD to happen get a gun and familiarise yourself with it before carrying. If you are not confident enough to carry it with one in the tube on safe, don't carry

Edit: sorry, one in the tube with the hammer down oops!

Sounds like you need a striker fired duty type weapon. Like Tack stated, they are ready to go. Charge it, and carry it. They WILL NOT discharge unless the trigger is pulled. I own two 1911's and two SAA's...I STRONGLY advise against a brand new shooter making a single action handgun their first. Especially for carry.

Once again I don't think the gun is too heavy as fair as a range gun or nightstand gun. But carrying it around is my concern. If you learned to read maybe your aim would get better as well.

Don't take offense to it man...nobody here is tryin' to discourage a "newbie" to the sport. We all give and take, and unless it gets personal it's usually in good fun.

I'd still look into a striker DAO.

Most of what I've been shopping around for are dao strikers. But I really like the 1911 and there function and would like a little of both worlds wrapped into one as I can only buy one gun.

I agree, if you're new to handguns you definitely shouldn't get a SA only for your first carry. Can't offer much advice beyond that as i'm not a fan of polymer guns in general.

And most of the ribbing that goes on here is pretty good natured, don't let it get to ya kid
