    Reccomendations for my first 1911

    I don't know anything about 1911's except I do want one. With the amount of choices out there from a lot of great companies, which would you guys reccomend. I would like a 10mm but would consider a 45 as well.
    Also are there any I should flat out stay away from.

    I've held and checked out but not fired the new 1911 model from Ruger. It seems like a fine gun from what I saw and read about. The price is right too. Check 'em out. It couldn't hurt. Maybe you'll like them...

    Try Springfield Armory. I have had two SA M1911A1s since 1987, shooting at pin matches every two weeks. They are great, durable guns.

    I really like the Springfield 1911's and the new RO line seems like a great new line. I'm leaning towards the new RO compact with the 4 in Barrel. From what I've seen it shoots good and isn't hard to carry concealed.

    I have 3 Kimbers and 2 Dan Wessons. All great guns. All have been super reliable.

    Would be my first choice at most anything under $1000.
