    1911 in .45 ACP.

    3 stores down. first was in the process of selling the only one they had in stock, a 70 series colt. The second store had only a taurus, and an old Ithaca that I would have snatched up but it was out of my range and they weren't willing to talk about out. The third store had no 1911's at all.

    The search continues. I started with the smaller pawn shops first, moving on to an actual gun store now.

    If the price is right, go for the Colt!!! :D
    Happy hunting.

    Oh, if you find a Rock Island 1911, you could get it, plus another ($300-$400) gun for the same price as the Colt. :D

    I saw a nice Kimber Ultra Carry II yesterday for $900 NIB. Would probably go for around $400 and my G36 with night sights but cant spend the money right now. I wont be getting a tax return. There are a bunch of used 1911's from various mfg for $500 or less at the LGS's but I need a light weight.

    I bought it, she's at home during in front of me at the kitchen table.

    First impression, love the gun, even like the holster and mag holder, but the mags feel cheap as hell. If they work, they work though.

    Range report will be coming this weekend.

    Why in the hell do they only give 2 mags and a double holder? Make it 2 mags and a single, or three mags and a double! One's going to be IN the gun, DUH!!

    Maybe so, but even they have done away with that carry method nowadays.
