I've been looking heavily at a Ruger SP101 .357 for a while now. It's stout, shoots a ballsy caliber, and is reasonably priced. Unfortunately, something happened today. I went into my local gun shop, and noticed that they had a Springfield Armory lightweight 1911 on the shelf for $499. I have decided that I want one. I think with some thin grips, it wouldn't print on any of the clothing I wear, and the .45ACP seems like a fine cartridge for self defense. My question is, would it be a stupid descision? Would trading out the simplicity of a revolver for a cheap 1911 be asking for trouble? The more I look at the 1911, the more I want it, but I realize the SP101 is probably a better buy. I have a delimma.
