Best handgun deal on the web!!! I bought this gun as a gift for myself after getting into Med school because I've always wanted a 1911. My grandfather was a marine and carried one on his hip through Nam and Korea, and I just feel more American holding a full sized 1911. However, I was a bit skeptical about Taurus as a manufacturer, but for the price you can't get anything with as many features, as good aesthetics, or as good a warranty(both Bud's and the lifetime from Taurus) so I "bit the bullet" (sorry for the lame pun) and gave the gun a try. I had heard some things about the finish wearing quickly and the factory mags being crap, but that wasn't the case for me. I'm happy to report that the gun's a beast! I've put over 500 rounds through it so far with out a single malfunction, and I've fed multiple kinds of ammo including some reel crap. I also have yet to hit the range without someone admiring the gun asking me where I got it. Everyone knows the 45 caliber's a monster with a big bite, but the weight of the gun keeps down the recoil making firing and hitting your target all but foolproof (also the novak sights are excellent!). I shoot a 3" grouping at 30', but a more experienced shooter could probably blow one hole with this 1911 from that distance... it's that accurate. Not that hitting your target's even important when the sound your gun makes would scare off any would-be robber anyway. If you're on the fence about trying out this gun then GO FOR IT! It's much more fun to shoot than my 357 magnum, and it's never leaving my collection.
