I have been thinking for a while about building an AR pistol and started really thinking about it last week. Somehow that thought process turned to the idea of building a 1911 which pretty quickly turned to buying a manufactured 1911.
So I do the research, start making decisions and finally decide on the Taurus.
I don't want the blued versions because they do seem to lose their finish quite easily so I opted for the stainless model. A local shop had a duo tone for almost $700! Um, no...
Cheapest I can find one anywhere seems to be Buds for $500, but being the impatient person I am I started perusing arms list and after being literally laughed at by multiple people for offering a new price ($500) for a used gun I finally found what I wanted!
A 2013 pt1911ss with much nicer grips and what I'm almost sure is a completely useless compensater, as well as all the usual stuff of course.
So here it is, my new baby...
Can you tell I'm excited?

Welcome.

Nice PT there. There are 1911s and then there are all those other guns people waste their time with.
