I started a thread a while back about which 1911 I should buy. 5 Pages of responses and a lot of rabbit trails later I chose the SAI loaded. I don't like it....I love it. I have shot a few of my friends 9's a couple of 40's but never a 1911. I don't care what other people like, my handgun of choice is the 1911. Balanced so it doesn't jump in the air when you shoot it, reasonably accurate, big boom, the only problem is I go through a lot of rounds. I took 2 boxes to the range to try it out, and what seemed like only minutes later they were all gone. I felt like a shamed dieter..did I just eat that whole cake? Anyway thank you for all of your help and I have already started to rat-hole money for my next one.
