Ok I have after shooting a buddys kimber come to the realization that I want a 1911. I have no where near the money that he spent on his. He suggested that I check out a Rock Island. Has anyone ever shot one of these? I can get one for about 380.00 from a local dealer. Which is a far cry from the 1k that my bud has wrapped up in his kimber. Suggestions? Comments? BTW trying to keep the cost down to keep the peace in the house I am sure most if you guys understand that!!
