I just want to say be careful with Springfield Armory,
great guns, but I've noticed the newer ones are being made in Brazil.

IMO; if you're going to own a 1911 it has to be "Made In U.S.A."
1911's are an American Legend, Man!!...just the history alone.

Good luck on your quest.
Exactly, I just can't see having a foreign made 1911,lol. I do have a springfield xdsc though. It's not like xd's are an american legend either.

Think a kimber crimson carry would be better than getting the xdm like I originally planned?

~$1K if you can find one. I'm on Bud's waiting list for the first in stock. I think this is going to be a hot seller!

I think laser sights on handguns are for mall ninjas.

Oh come on,lol. What? Are you one of those old fogies who dislikes change because the way we use to do it..............

Lasergrips are very useful if you ask me, but you didn't.

I would rather take the $300 extra that your going to spend on Laser Grips and get some ammo to practice with. Just my opinion.

The crimson carry comes with laser grips. I can find laser grips, I can't find ammo.

I really like the Springfield Champion Operator for under a grand. This could very well be my next purchase.

Isn't Springfield made in Brazil or some such nowa days?

Kimber's a girl's name. Buy a colt.
