    I must say, you have good taste in 45ACP's. It's a beaut! www.budsgunshop.com had one listed at $763 delivered. The key word being "had".

    That's a great price! I think I need to head down to the local shop and get one for 800 before they come to their senses.

    I love how those little 3" 1911's look. Some day, some day.

    Although I won't use it for a CCW gun. Too many reliability issues.

    Todd,
    That's for CC in a tuxedo... Your XD9SC is for CC in everything else...

    'Course, I've been packing my XD45 more often...

    Looks like I won't need one then for a while since the last time I was in a tux was my wedding 10 years ago.

    No fancy suit here, that sucker will get used. Just like my Les Baer. I already have a plastic gun. For winter carry. The Springer is thinner and will be easier to hide in the summer. Les Baer is a range gun, but I would carry that too if I had too. They are tools.

    Buy it! Pump 500 through it of various brands, and put up a range report! I'd love to know how good they are... I'm already a Springfield fan... Who knows?

    I've read that the 45ACP does not do well in a 3 inch gun. Are the newer rounds doing better? Will a Gold Dot or DPX fully expand coming from only 3 inches of barrel?

    Anyone got a reference on good results?

    Beautiful 1911, that's for sure...

    The reviews I have seen are overwhelmingy positive not just on this one but many other 3 inch as well.

    P.S. I am going to get one put on layaway at the local shop. It will be awhile for a review.

    I'm not so much concerned with the reliability of the pistol, but the JHPs. Most 45ACP loads were developed around the 5 inch barrel. Reducing that by 2/5 must have a pretty decent impact on velocity. What JHPs maintain enough velocity or mushroom reliably from a 3 inch barrel?
