Dan Wesson makes a fantastic 1911. I have a couple myself.

Enjoy the fall off the 1911 cliff. It's a loooong way down, but the ride sure is fun!!
If forced to choose between the two, I'd go Rock Island/ARMSCOR without hesitation. A good Taurus is probably great. A bad one can be a nightmare. Taurus CS has earned a reputation for being difficult at times. The Rocks are as inexpensive as the Taurus offerings, or less. However, Rock Island has been developing a reputation for exceptional CS.

Every DW I've handled has been excellent. I own two.

First 1911, first step. This is just the beginning!

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!
