    With all due respect, I think it's inappropriate and unfair to throw in a line like yours above about the Taurus without any supporting reasons. It's like a rumor, it does damage without any substance. If you have a good reason for that comment, please give it when you give the comment... it's only fair... to Taurus, and to the people on this forum, especially the guy asking advice.

    Opinions are valid to have but have no real value to others who don't know you well personally, but opinions with reasons/facts are useful to others, even if they don't know you well. Your comment about the Para GI Expert is an example of the second, as you explain why you like them, your comment about the Taurus is an example of the first, as it has no reasoning behind it, and therefore no real value to anyone but you. Make sense?

    {who hopes you take this in the positive way it's intended, and it goes to you only because this is the one I just noticed, but I'm sure the comment applies to others here...}

    If you're just looking to get into the 1911 platform and want to budget it, then the Springfield GI or Mil-Spec for a bit more would be hard to beat for price/warranty/upgrade-ability.

    The RIA guns are getting very good reports as well. The STI line of guns are also very good from all reports.

    Go out, grab a bunch and handle em. See which one jumps out at you.

    I recommend a Colt 1991. An excellent entry level 1911, that also makes for an excellent build gun if you ever get to that point. New blued models sell for a tad over $700 with stainless about a c-note more. They come with Colt's reputation for quality and customer service.....and best of all, it's a Colt.

    I would have to go with the crowd saying that the RIA is the way to go. I love my Compact Tactical.

    You can buy a Kimber Custom Target II for less than $1000 and you wont have to add anything to it...AND..they SHOOT!

    And sometimes a Kimber Pro CDP II used at a gun show for that amount or less.

    (Without the Crimson Trace Laser Grips)



    Sweet shooting gun.

    I bought a Para Gun Rights in FEb, and so far it has broken the extractor, and only 2 out of 5 mags will lock the slide back. 1 para and a Les Baer mag work, 1 para and 2 new Wilson's will not lock it. All the guys who work at my range have Springfields, and they're all leo's. 2 of them shoot in competition. Para said they'll fix it, but they'll have it for 4 to 6 weeks. I'm having it fixed locally, and selling it!
