    A $309 1911?

    So I saw this 1911 today made by a company called Chiappas that was $309 new. This has got to be some kind of joke, right? Would it explode in my hand or ricochet and kill my firstborn child? If not, a $309 1911 seems like a great deal. Your thoughts?

    It was a .22 right? Made in Italy.

    I assumed it was a .45, but I guess I didn't look too closely. If it was a .22 that would explain it.

    That's the truth!! However, you can spend less than that on a .22 that doesn't constantly malfunction.

    Its the same rimfire as the Puma 1911-22.

    They aren't even real 1911s from a function standpoint.

    Many of is 45 ACP shooters are re-loaders. Helps keep costs down. Though most anyone that shoots on a regular basis is spending a good bit of money. If I don't shoot a 1911 at least once a week then I feel like I haven't shot at all.

    ammo $

    If only it were just .45 ammo. I have to buy .38, .38 +P, .357, 32 S&W long, 22, 22 mag, 270, 30-30, 12 ga, 16 ga. And now 10mm! Awesome, but expensive. So I've started reloading some of the centerfire handgun stuff. Haven't been at it long enough to recoup start-up cost, though.
