Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum and have been looking to purchase my first gun. My father and grandfather own many firearms so I have some experience with several different makes and caliber guns. I was instantly drawn to the S&W 1911 (see attached) but I've noticed that S&W doesn't seem to get much love around here. Why would I want say a Colt or Kimber over the S&W1911? I was leaning toward the Desert Tan for the shorter barrel and lighter weight, but a little worried about the durability of the finish compared to SS. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
