Cant say I agrees with some of FDR's work, but I do lose this quote by his wife. The funny thing is that it is still relevant and true today.

I was wondering has anyone used a Citadel. I am looking to buy my first handgun and it is the cheapest .45 I've found online and all the reviews I've read say it a good gun for the money. So I was wondering if anyone had any input on this gun and whether it would be a good starter or do I need go ahead and spend the extra $200 for a Taurus.

I'm giving serious thought to the Remington stainless ($699 or so). Need to fire it first but in terms of fit, nice tight tolerances, and the lack of the black levers and stops, etc (I think Kimbers are ugly as sin for that reason), plus I have seen nothing but good range reports about this pistol. Feels great in my hand. Now all I need to do is let a little time pass since the last firearm purchase (yesterday) and I might be able to sweet-talk Mrs. Chloeshooter a bit.....

That's a smoking deal for a compact, wonder how it like hot defensive ammo? I really had my heart set on a nice 4" 1911 w lightweight frame. I settled for the XDs and really love it But.......it's not a 1911. I don't think I'd be willing to sell/trade my little hand cannon for one of the Philippine 1911's but it is high on my next gun purchase list. If you don't mind could ya give some range details rounds so far, accuracy, any ammo dislikes........I'm quickly warming up to the non "good ole US an A" 1911's($$$$) lol
