Hi guys, newbie here, I love keeping up with this thread and enjoy reading about everyone's collection and latest additions. I only own some hand me downs, but this thread (dammit) has me interested in embarking on my own ownership journey.
So, with that thought in mind, could the collective wisdom here give me some advice/recommendations on a good 1911 with which to begin? I'm interested in using it at the range, and improving my personal handling capabilities. I'm not really sure what other questions I need to answer, so shoot them at me (pun intended) and help me out! Thanks!
