Have been shooting shotguns and rifels for a long time but never a pistol. I have become interested in getting a 1911 type pistol and would like your input. This will not be a carry gun so Im not looking for a compact gun. Would like to be in the $800.00 to $1000.00 range. Have been looking at S&W, Kimber. I have a Kimbet 30.06 and love it so have been leaning to the Kimber but for no real reason. What do you have to say?
