tex45acp: Been there two ways. The guys who sniff at my Taurus and quickly let me know what high-dollar, quality handgun they are shooting are blazing away at shorter distances than I'm shooting and getting worse groups, by far, than I'm getting. I get it a second way because most of my rounds down range are rimfire. I get the "bigger hole" and "real gun" comments along with them letting me know what high dollar gun they are shooting. In fact, I'd probably stop shooting and seriously meditate on my technical and character flaws if my groups were like theirs. I'm not a great shooter, I know some excellent marksmen, and I'm not one of them.

Fortunately most of the folks at the ranges I use are genuinely interested in what you are shooting and are happy to do "show and tell." I've gotten to shoot Kimbers and other high dollar guns including some that have been worked over by the big name companies. I've been very impressed with a lot I've fired.

My criteria for a handgun are fit, feel, accuracy and reliability. Price fits into the equation. My PT1911 fits and feels good. Is capable of one-ragged hole accuracy at 15 yards with I let it. The trigger is excellent. I haven't had it long enough to judge reliability, but so far, it has fired everything I've loaded without flaw. All for under $500. Now, tell me what more I get for 2-3 times the price.
