I've always wanted a 1911 .45 and now looks like the time that I can buy one. I own a few .38special US Military issue revolvers and I'm wanting a semi-automatic now for target shooting and for carrying while I hunt on my farm. I'm looking for something that I can holster and tuck away in my truck if I need it. I'm looking at getting a rail on my 1911 (I know this is near blasphemy) because we have a wildcat down here on the farm that is mauling some dogs and other things around here so the light will be functional on my gun as I do a lot of walking around at night and would rather use the light on the pistol than carrying a seperate flashlight. So with all that said, I'm not looking to spend more than $1300 with gun, light, and holster. I'd like to have something that will be fun to go target shooting and preferably with a look like the one pictured here: Tactical-Life.com » Springfield Custom Professional Light Rail .45ACP I'm looking at brands like S&W, Taurus, Sig, and Springfield. All these have a 1911 that matches what I'm looking for. So what would ya'll recommend for me?
