Need some advice.
I do not yet own a handgun, but I would like for my first one to be a 1911.
With my budget of 1500, what would you suggest?

I would check out Dan Wesson, Colt, or Springfield. Best bang for your buck in that price range, IMO.

What are you opinions on the Colt Commander?

Can't go wrong with a Colt! That's where it all started. But I'll defer to Cane, our resident Colt expert, who I'm sure will be along shortly.

My grandfather had a colt commander when he was in WW2, and everyone I've known thats had one or even heard of one has said they are great guns.

Oh man! The Colt "Rail Gun" Model is beautiful. I think I've found my new handgun boys!

Oh and thank you for the info!

Problem is, that $1500 budget doesn't include ammo. .45 ain't cheap to shoot, so you might look into a Kimber model, with a .22 conversion kit. That way you can go to the range and shoot the crap out of it.

The ideal carry gun, IMHO is the Colt Light Weight Commander Model O4860XSE;

Colt XSE Lightweight Commander - $899.00

A gun you can carry all day!
.45 ACP 8 + 1 Round
