      I have 5 also and bought a Dan Wesson this year and it spun my head around and is by far the best 1911 I've had in 39yrs of these guns...

      My Kimber Pro Carry was stolen out of my truck. I needed a quick replacement, didn't have alot of cash, bought a SAM. Paid about $380 for it in 2004. Changed out some parts, solid rod, bushing, springs, did a trigger job on it, and have been shocked at how good it's been. Have about 1000 rds thru it. But, Kimber get's my vote.

      Dan Wesson, Colt and Springfield all make excellent weapons. Dan Wesson is perhaps my favorite. Want to get my hands on an American Classic (Firestorm) and check out the quality. It seems to be getting great reviews for such an inexpensive 1911.

      Other. Wilson Combat or Nighthawk. Shoot one, if you can, and then you will know. They are really great guns.
      Nighthawk

      Wilson's

      I have all and the other...

      Para has it hands down for me. Now, that said, I shoot USPSA Single Stack with a Kimber Gold Match II.

      Still, I'm a southern boy that loves his Para. Get some! You'll never bitch about your good ole NC transplant.

      Dan Wesson 1911's.

      By far the best buy in the handgun market.

      I have a Para SSP 45 Govt model, and a Para Slim Hawg 45 3" model. I think they are great guns for the money, lot of nice features. I did have to correct (2) of the (8) magazines-would not fall clear on eject. The full size has been 100% since day one. The 3" had a few minor quirks I fixed myself, since it has been 100%. Nice triggers, stainless match grade barrels (shoot even better after 800-1000rnds). Eats any ball and HPs I have feed them.

      Well..

      I voted for "other" even though I have a Kimber and was real glad to see it in first place. My first choice is the Fusion I have on order.

      Talking

      I voted Taurus PT 1911 SS version.
      Why?:
      - Cost (can't be beat) I could have 2 for price of other pistols, leaves money to customise a wee bit
      - Looks good too especially if grips updated
      - Stainless Steel model looks class
      - Tight frame/slide well machined
      - Reliable and shoots anything
      - Triger good for standard
      - Weight good
      - Serve backup is good here
      - I know a view guys that own one and no problems

      If I could justify the cost of a Kimber I would love one but I can't so Taurus is my BATNA

      I' have had Colt, Springfield and Thompson. Never had a problem with colt or Springfield.

      The Thompson was too damn finicky about what i was feeding her LOL.

      I' carry a Norinco .45 1911 now, need more Colt's !
