I've been debating over which .45 to get. My choices were S&W - Kimber - or Springfield.
I think I've been convinced that one of the best out there is the Micro Compact. So now the quest to find one will insue.
Feedback from any of you that own one is appreciated. Am I making the right (good) decision?
Just a suggestion-
I don't know if Springfield is backed up on 1911 orders like they were 6 months ago, but if you can't find one locally, just start calling around.
I recently tracked down a hard to find 1911(Dan Weson CBOB) in Missouri, and had it shipped to a gun store in my state of Washington. If you don't have a problem buying a gun, site unseen, then you should be able track one down. Some one, somewhere, has one. And most shops will take a card number over the phone and do an FFL transfer on it. Not sure where you live, but if your state has sales tax, this could be a plus!
Also, you might want to try Cabela's, or a similar multi-location outfit, as you could have them do a product transfer between stores(Cabela's charges $35 for this), so that you could go to your local store and check it out before you buy
