Fair call mate...can't argue with those sentiments. Easing SWMBO into shooting, and building the arsenal are both great plans.

Cheers, Vince

Vince, I figure a .380 Auto beats hand-to-hand any time! I've been carrying a Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace laser in my pocket a lot recently. Its capable of 1" groups at 10 yards or so.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.380_ACP

XD's are awesome. Great trigger, action, memory bump grip safety. Can't go wrong. They run like Glock's too- forever. I know some that carry same for duty weapons. And much like a Glock they are utilitairian. Nothin' fancy just soild and dead nuts reliable with a long grip for large hands, small hands work too. The M's are marginally better with a few more options but- either or....and with 13 flyin' ashtray's what's not too like? If ya can't stop it with that don't call me cuz I don't want your problem!

I really want the XD 45 but after seeing the thread on the custom grips I need a 1911 now..........
I have been wanting one anyway.

Don't forget the Ruger sr1911, as an entry level gun it seems ok, trigger seems a little sloppy thou, no comparison to my springfield 1911.

Man they are all really good now....SA, the Ruger, I'd say pick one. Springfield Armory is really REALLY ahrd to beat for the price and that would be my first choice. The Ruger is sweet and the new kid on the block if you like shiny guns (Wiersy) I prefer matte dark something or blued. Nuttin beats the single action trigger...Slimjim picked mine up never seen it before and started killing with it right out of the gate....

I was looking at the Kimber 1911's as well. I really like the Raptors. That will be a long term goal though. A little pricy.

Premium guns always is....I've shot and handled both the Norinco's and RI's and they shoot really well. The Rock Island Amory's don't have the level of polish the premium's do but man they are tough and ran well with a variety of JHP. And the price was outstanding as you can get a 1911 type action/trigger for the price of a poly DA/SA DAO etc. Ya wont score any points with the big $$ snobs at the range, I get scoffs as mine rattles like a can of nuts, but it shoots and never stops, even when I lost a grip panel from a failed screw (Slim knows lol!.....grip screw thing was totally my fault- I modified it it failed... Mad ).
