    My first but definitely not my last! When I was looking for my first concealed carry I looked at a lot of guns, I already knew I wanted .45 auto. After holding a variety of styles and a little research I knew I wanted a 1911 because of the single action and safety features.....not to mention the feel and looks. I seen the Sig C3 two tone and fell in love, of course I did a lot of research for my price range and was sold on the Sig. I wish I had the traditional slide on it though,but after running 200 rds through it with no hiccups I couldn't be happier :eek:)

    You do understand that when you say "first" 1911 that automatically implies there will be a second......and a third....

    Very nice first. And they're right .... "first" is the appropriate word. Make room for siblings! :)

    Oh yeah....I'm thinking like a full size, maybe a Springfield. But then again I've heard the Taurus is decent for the money....any thoughts?

    Yep, you are totally screwed now. LOL

    I came into a used full sized Taurus, made a couple of mods and it ran like a champ. Great pistol for the money and a lifetime guarantee no matter who the owner is.

    *CAVEAT - you do have to send the pistol to some holding house in Florida so they can send back to Brazil where the factory is,

    Depends on budget for suggestions, but I you're thinking Taurus, don't count out RIA. Lots of lovers an haters out there, but my experience has been great; and they have the lifetime warranty and great CS reputation.

    Enjoy the fall off the 1911 cliff. It's a loooong way down, but the ride sure is fun!! :D

    If your first 1911 is a Sig C3, it will be hard to settle for a Taurus for your next gun. And I even own a Taurus and really like the gun. But Sig makes a very high quality 1911. I actually like their unique slide design over the traditional design. Congrats on the new gun!

    Dan Wesson makes a fantastic 1911. I have a couple myself.

    If forced to choose between the two, I'd go Rock Island/ARMSCOR without hesitation. A good Taurus is probably great. A bad one can be a nightmare. Taurus CS has earned a reputation for being difficult at times. The Rocks are as inexpensive as the Taurus offerings, or less. However, Rock Island has been developing a reputation for exceptional CS.
    Every DW I've handled has been excellent. I own two.
