You asked, I'll answer.

Get a Colt LW Commander. It will serve you for a lifetime. The commander size is the best of both worlds. With it's 4.25" barrel it retains accuracy yet provides a better carry package for concealment.



Colt model 04860XSE Lightweight Commander BIN $975.00

Or if a little extra weight isn't an issue, the all steel Commander is another great gun.



Colt 1911 Stainless Commander .45 ACP $947.00 SHIPS FREE

You can find both these for sub $1K.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Have you looked up STI 1911's? I have read nothing but good things over on GT 1911 forum. I got the chance to hold one and they are built like a 1500 dollar 1911. You can buy a few for less then thousand. You could put them in the semi custom class. Or you can check out No name 1911, same deal as above.

I am also a new fan of the 1911 platform. I am leaning very heavily toward Ruger's offering in this class as I have 2 Ruger pistols with several thousand hiccup free rounds through each and my dad's lil' .22 Ruger went over 8k rounds hiccup free before its first cleaning! All this plus I think it is a beautiful looking gun... Almost as perty as Canebrake's wife... err.. umm...

I have the 4012XSE & I also vouch for it. The light weight XSE Cane shows is high on my 'to buy' list, along with a 70 series repo, a 1991 Government Model, a .........
