I've been shopping for another 1911. I have several customized one's but this time I just wanted a low cost shooter. I went into my favorite gun store with the intent of buying the full-size Ruger. They were asking $699.99 before sales tax another 8.6%. Thus $760.00 out the door. I've always wanted a Ruger since they were introduced. The owner is a great guy & had just taken in on trade a very slightly used Remington R1 enhanced. It was a blued version which I kind of prefer. He offered to me for $644.00, so with sales tax it was an even $700.00. Tough desision. I went & did some other errands while I thought about it. Two hours I went in and decided on the Remington. Opinions?
