Ok, so time is close
 
and I am looking at every 1911 out there, but I have a question. If you had a chance to get a 1911 and the Smith and Wesson 500, which would you get? I can get one this year and one next year (so sayeth the "banker" in the house)? Like I said, I am starting my collection, and want to get what I can when I can. Kimber or Colt 1911 or a Smith and Wesson 500........you make the call!

NO CONTEST!

I'd get at least one 1911, as they tend to multiply once you get one, before I even considered holding that big .500 unless you are planning on hog hunting or something like that with it.

For pistol shooting the 1911 wins this poll with 85% plus of the vote. Easy.

This is looking like a swing and a miss kinda question.....HAHAHAH! Yeah, I got "STARRY EYED" by the whole 50 cal.....oh well, next year!

i would go colt 1911. the 500 would be sweet in a quality semi auto carbine. but in a pistol... bleh. i got a 50ae and the only reason i havent got rid of it is my wife loves the thing.

The 1911 is a piece of history, a fine firearm and mandatory for any gun aficionado. You will shoot it more often and you will soon be smitten by the world's greatest pistol. ;)

The 500 may be fun to shoot, but you won't want to shoot it a lot and ammunition is quite costly.
