My first 1911, in 45acp anyway (I have a GSG 22lr).
Ruger SR1911 matte stainless, $699. Just your basic entry level setup, exactly as shown in this shamelessly jacked web pic:
Pics/range report to follow if I ever get a little time off work.
The other gun that impressed me at the show was the Kahr CW45. Nice compact little single stack (6+1) for under $370. Might be my next addition.
Anyhow, here's the current pistol roster (bought the 1st three years ago):
GSG 1911 (22lr)
Ruger SP101 (357m)
Kel Tec PF9 (9mm)
CZ 75b (9mm)
Browning Hi-Power (9mm)
Sig P226 (357/40)
Ruger SR1911 (45acp)
SA XDm45 (45acp)
How am I doing?
