    and I am looking at every 1911 out there, but I have a question. If you had a chance to get a 1911 and the Smith and Wesson 500, which would you get? I can get one this year and one next year (so sayeth the "banker" in the house)? Like I said, I am starting my collection, and want to get what I can when I can. Kimber or Colt 1911 or a Smith and Wesson 500........you make the call!

    NO CONTEST!

    I'd get at least one 1911, as they tend to multiply once you get one, before I even considered holding that big .500 unless you are planning on hog hunting or something like that with it.

    For pistol shooting the 1911 wins this poll with 85% plus of the vote. Easy.

    i would go colt 1911. the 500 would be sweet in a quality semi auto carbine. but in a pistol... bleh. i got a 50ae and the only reason i havent got rid of it is my wife loves the thing.

    The 1911 is a piece of history, a fine firearm and mandatory for any gun aficionado. You will shoot it more often and you will soon be smitten by the world's greatest pistol. ;)

    The 500 may be fun to shoot, but you won't want to shoot it a lot and ammunition is quite costly.

    I really feel the S&W 500 is a novelty gun, I can't believe anyone really enjoys shooting it often & repeatably. I am sure you will get much more usage out of the 1911 or 2011 STI models

    1911 all the way.

    If you want a .50 cal,then get a 1911 in 50 GI.

    1911 all the way. The .500 is useless, pointless and is total novelty. If you need a .500 for hunting......go get a rifle!!!
    Seriously, you will shoot the 1911 much more and have more fun with it. I own 3 and I haven't stopped the craving yet for another! Next one is going to be a Smith.
    Good luck and get the 1911!!

    Colt 1911 this year and the S&W..........but in 460 (a much better round) next year.

    Even Mike Golden likes the 460 better!
