I'm going to probably start saving some cash away for a 1911 so here's the thing. I want you guys to sell me the 1911 and tell me what to do. It's looking like I am going to get this job tomorrow and I'll finally have cash flow coming in which will be great. I saw today a Mil-Spec Springfield with a blue bead blasted finish I liked. Then I also like the Kimbers...but the silly thing is...I just don't like the emblem of the kimber.....If I got a kimber I'd probably fill in the name because I don't like it.....and really I'd rather get a Taurus or a Mil-Spec so I can have a fun little project gun as I go along....send it off to get modified and what not....and I just like the overall looks of the Springfield. I hate the colts though....well the new Colts....if I could find a series 70 or WW1 Colt I'd get it. So what do you think? Of course I was thinking about getting a Taurus PT1911 with the rail on it since well I'd like the rail...and I like having the option of putting a flash light on there so it would be a good Home Defense backup gun.
