Thanks for the positive replies. Not being the wordsmith that canebrake is, I just wanted to clear it with HIM. It is well conceived and well written and I thought others should see it. I didn't want to plagiarize canebrake. He obviously put time into the work. He deserves full credit for the post!!!!!

There is one very important thing that no one has mentioned, a fact that you must consider before that first purchase.....again, this is of utmost importance.

1911's are a sickness, an addiction if you will. You will not stop with one!

Make that first purchase a 5" Colt, then a Colt Commander, then a Colt railgun, then maybe a Springer and a Kimber....or another Colt or two.

What an odd request from someone with a handful of posts...
Just because Thunderr1 only has a handful of posts on FTF does not mean he is not well known or respected elsewhere. His request was polite and respectful, and I very much appreciate that.

To thundrr1:

Your request was obviously respectful and indicated a high respect for Cane. I just found it odd to indicate another if ours isn't the best on the interwebz...which it is. I once made the mistake of linking to another forum and was convinced by some great moderators that this forum should be supported by its members over other forums.

I hope to read more from you thundrr1 and please do not take this encounter to mean that we are all as presumptuous as I just appeared to be. Pompous, maybe, but presumption has no place here.

Ammunition choice is a big factor.I have had no failures with Winchester or Federal 230 grain jhp.I carry a Springfield TRP.Its an FBI contract pistol,which means the standard is 5k rounds with no problems whatsoever.I have had no problems,just clean lightly after every shooting.
Springfield Armory 1911 TRP,two of them,in Simply Rugged holsters for the summer and Andrews double shoulder holster for winter.
