Hello all, I have been lurking here for a week or two, and I've learned a lot already. I am in the early stages of research,( I don't tend to rush too much), In buying a 9mm 1911. I like the look and feel of a 1911, and the economy of 9mm. So far I am leaning toward Springfield. Price and features being the reason. I think I want stainless for durability. What do you guys think? Is there something I am missing, something worth spending more for? I have looked at Kimber and Taurus. Who else should look at or be aware of? I am going to use this for recreational target shooting.
