My first 1911, in 45acp anyway (I have a GSG 22lr). Ruger SR1911 matte stainless, $699. Just your basic entry level setup, exactly as shown in this shamelessly jacked web pic: Pics/range report to follow if I ever get a little time off work. The other gun that impressed me at the show was the Kahr CW45. Nice compact little single stack (6+1) for under $370. Might be my next addition. Anyhow, here's the current pistol roster (bought the 1st three years ago): GSG 1911 (22lr) Ruger SP101 (357m) Kel Tec PF9 (9mm) CZ 75b (9mm) Browning Hi-Power (9mm) Sig P226 (357/40) Ruger SR1911 (45acp) SA XDm45 (45acp) How am I doing?
