I have some of the guns mentioned in this thread so have a basis for comparison. RIAs and American Classics are excellent guns and very well made for their price point - but for ME they are awfully...

based on your comment I do NOT recommend a 1911. They are addictive. Once you buy one you are going to want MANY more. I've heard of people who gave up drugs, alcohol and women solely to support...

My AC II has been a great pistol. Excellent fit and finish and not a single problem with more than a thousand rounds down the pipe.

I have a rock island and STI Spartan and both are great guns for the price. My STI Spartan is a step up. I think you may find both guns a little heavy for everyday carry, but both would be a great...

I carry cocked and locked with my 1911. I used to carry a gun with a decocker and I was not accurate with that long first pull as on subsequent shots. I probably could have improved that with more...

A 1911 pistol is one based on the design of John Moses Browning over 100 years ago. Its design has proved durable and adaptable. The design of the frame is very natural for many shooters. Parts are...

I hear this frequently but it isn't true. RIAs are NOT made on old Colt equipment. The older Colt manufacturing equipment was sent to South America (Brazil I think). RIAs are made in the Phillipines...

I like the RIA 1911 9mm, but the Bersa Thunder Pro 9 HC is a good shooter, reliable, aluminum alloy, strips/cleans easily and isn't expensive. Bersa doesn't advertise much in the US but has a big...

I'm sure you will love your American Classic II as much as I love mine. You are right that it has a great fit and finish. The blued finish on the AC II is great - better than the finish on my RIA GI,...

I really don't think you can go wrong with a Spartan V in 9mm.. As you evaluate different options it's good to define your basic requirements and then compare. One VERY important point is the...

If this is your first 1911 I would strongly strongly suggest that you go with a full size pistol and avoid the 3 inch models. While 3" has its place they give a different user experience. I doubt...

While Cane is right that the Gold Cup isn't a great multipurpose gun, it's a great gun nonetheless.. And it's not like you are going to own ONLY ONE 1911. This is the start of your addiction. ;-)

Why .45? Because you shouldn't have to shoot them twice. Perhaps this would be a more accepted idea if chambered in 9mm.

Go with the 9mm. You'll shoot it more at cheaper cost and it is perfectly capable of doing the job for self defense or home defense. Practice with what you carry - if they ever let you carry in IL.
