Got The P220, Pining for a 1911
A couple years back I sold the Sig P220 I had when I lost my job in a plant closing, I hated to sell it but the budget didn't allow for it. Now that I have gotten righted around financially, I went and got another P220, this time an older but mint "Gray Box" model. I had been researching 1911's before I bought the SIG, but decided to stick with the SIG because I know it well and am comfortable handling it. Now I am second guessing the SIG after putting a box of rounds through it. Not because of any issues with the gun, just the fact that I'd like to try a 1911. I got about $600. tied up in the SIG and could probably get a decent 1911 for that. I don't carry the 45 for defense, it's just for target practice and maybe stopping the occasional intruder.
The several 1911's that I have held feel perfect in my hand, I prefer the narrow single stack 45's.
The Springfield Mil Spec and the Rock Island Tactical are of interest to me. The local gun dealed here has two Colt 1911's, but the $800. is out of my range.
Darn 1911 demons, wish they would just leave my head so that I can get on with life! :buttkick:
