    well i'm really attracted to the 1911 because it's a .45. i've only owned rifles in the past and a couple revolvers like a .357 mag and a .38 special.

    i'm looking for mostly safety and reliability. i've heard some models of 1911 are notorious for misfiring or discharging when dropped.

    any input would help. this gun will be used as a target gun mostly, but i wouldn't rule out home defense, either.

    i've got a 12 gauge pump for that, though. 1911 would just be a last ditch effort in that situation.

    I could've bought a used one for $375. The guy will probably still sell it to me if I tell him I'm willing to come to pick it up. I'm seriously considering it.

    The guy only does face to face sales to CO residents. He's not a dealer but he posts a lot of guns on a Colorado gun sales board. If you're in Colorado I'll hook you up with his email.

    I love the SW1911! It is one of my all time favorite handguns. I have a blued steel and a nickel plated pair that I got for $1600, but believe it was a deal. Never been shot, perfect condition and they both came in a custom case, with engravings and designs on the grip and down the barrel. Damn! My camera is missing its memory stick so I cant take a pic. I'l be back with a picture...
