Well I've always wanted a 1911, but have long been torn between the many options so it has been put off for years. A good deal popped up on here for an entry level slightly used 1911 so I jumped on it. It's a Taurus PT1911 ALR and I already love the way it feels and looks, but have yet to shoot it. I didn't have a lot of time to research the Taurus since it was a good price, but after a little looking tonight it seems like people either love them or hate them. If anyone has any first hand experience with what to watch for on these it would be much appreciated. Will be taking it shooting tomorrow and can't wait.
