I've decided that my next purchase is to be a 1911, but i'm not sure which one to get, and what has more bang for the buck. It's going to be a carry, a plinker a home defense and a safe queen as well. Now I plan on setting about 1500 aside for this buy. I will have to budget about 75 bucks a paycheck till I reach this goal. So who has thought's for a good one in that price range that will fit my needs? If you reply thank you for playing along and entertaining my habit. I also thank you for the input.
