Thanks guys for all the input. I sold off my Glock26 and Beretta 85FS and decided to stop buying and selling handguns and try my hand with an AR. Went to the gun show today and picked up a Stag Arms 2H, the flattop and 500 rounds of .223. I should be getting out to the range on Monday or Tuesday, then I'll make one last post here to close out the topic. Any further handgun topics I start will be in the Walther section. I still have left-hand leather and kydex for the G26/27 if anyone is interested.
Have you considered a Taurus PT-945. It's the same size, look and feel as a 1911, but is MUCH easier to operate and break down, plus it's a DA/SA pistol... think of a DA 1911. I have one and think it's an outstanding choice in a full size 45 auto. I paid $375 for mine NIB last year and have been very happy with it.
The best kept secrets are the S&W Model 457 and the Bersa Thunder 45. Regards, Richard
I agree with your suggestion of a Bersa 45. I've owned one more than 2 years and it makes a very good general purpose 45. I made some comments about them and posted a pic of mine, with some accessories, in a recent post on the Bersa 45 if you want more detail.
GO to the gun store and grab every .45 they got and it will find you
I agree - the 1911 just feels so good in my hand. Since I told my wife I have enough pistols for the time being I guess I'm out of the market now. But since I got my CHP I am interested in the Kimber RCP. Like the thread starter, I'm looking for ARs for my wife and I.
