Just bought my first taurus. I couldn't decide between the pt1911 and the 24/7 so I went to the gun shop and asked to look at both. The shop owner decided to make my decision much easier and quicker by telling me they didn't have any 24/7's currently. The 1911 looks and feels very nice and I can't wait to get to the range to test her out. I'm crossing my fingers hoping I don't have the front sight alignment problem that I've read about. Now if I can manage to avoid making another trip by the gun shop to buy a 24/7 my wife might not kill me. When I make it by the range in a couple days I will give a comparison between my glock 21 and the pt1911 for those interested.
