Found a 1911 Commander today in a gander mountain. They said its the only one they had seen. I bought it 2 mins after they put it on the shelf. $749. Nice gun. Can't wait to get some rounds through it tomorrow. It's my only 1911 in my stable. I was going to go Kimber, unless I somehow came across a Ruger. Feeling pretty lucky and still have some $ in my pocket!! FYI, I spend a lot of time traveling and I always stop at gun shops I come across. This was the first Ruger 1911 I have seen. Much less a commander, which is what I wanted.
