Gentlemen: Hello! I am a Viet Nam Era former Marine who stands at 5'8 inches with medium hands who is interested in a 1911 for home defense & plinking! I am willing to spend up to 1300 dollars! I seek a 1911 that is first- reliable and second- accurate. I perfer a barrel lenght of 3.9 inches up to 4.25 inches! How this 1911 does in rapid fire is also important to me. I am open to opinions about all 1911's and also if you shot the 1911 your recommendations and how it handled. Thank-You for your advice! __________________ There's No Life Before Coffee!
