As you know, I have not shot pistols for quite a while. The target on the upper left is a Smith & Wesson 686 Plus shooting .38 Special. The target on the upper right is a Smith & Wesson 686 Plus shooting .357 Magnum. The target on the bottom left is a Glock 19 shooting 9 mm. The 686 Plus sits on a larger frame, so there's very little recoil. I have noticed my best shooting is from the larger .357 Magnum caliber.

I may rent a Colt 1911 at the gun range and give it a try.

A basic Colt 1911 Government Issue is not cheap. Here is the cost at my local gun store.

So what did we fire at The Gun Store (I think it was a Colt 1911) and what would be an average cost?

We used the .45 1911. I am not sure what you mean by average cost?

Exactly what did we shoot?  Remington?  Colt?  S&W?  The website said it was a Colt, a person at the Range said it was a Remington 1911.  I loved the feel of it.  It fit my hand and felt so right.  So I'm wondering exactly what it was and what is the cost of it if I were to hunt the web/local stores to find one exactly like it. There is only 1 other thing that felt so good in my hand...  Oh wait...  Another story.... [smile]

From my understanding, when they built the 1911s for the military, many different manufacturers either made complete weapons or interchangeable parts. Today, while many manufacturers have put their names on the 1911, they are generally all the same. I will try and contact the range and get the manufacturer of those they there.

Actually, I do want one.  I've always have.  I bought my Taurus PT99AF 9MM back in 1988 after downloading 300 rds through my buddy's gun.  I kick myself because there was a 1911 in the display case right next to the 9, but I was familiar and comfortable with the 9.

If you can't tell by Steve's comments, that he is reallly wanting a 1911, then either you're asleep or haven't logged into the forum yet!

Will do.  The wife is sparked an interest in shooting.  She has shot my 9MM before, years ago.  But it was just too heavy and had too much of a recoil for her small hands.  So, we went looking for a .22.  Looks like she is going to go for the Browning 1911-22.  All the auto but without the recoil  [smile]  That will be the first purchase.  Once she has hers, I can focus on the 1911 for me  [smile]  BTW, you can't get .22 ammo in San Diego easily.  And thanks to the dorkheads, you can't order it on the internet and have it shipped to you.  But.....  you can in Nevada  [smile]  HAHAHAHA

Can't remember for sure, Steve, without looking at my receipts, but I would swear I have gotten some 22LR online and I live outside the base in Twentynine Palms.

Interesting.  I will keep looking.  But I do have a gun store about 4 minutes from my house in Nevada if I can't find anything.  And in Nevada, I can have it shipped directly to my house.  I saw a bucket (1400 rds) of Remington Golden Bullets for $100, and it is in stock.  Can't beat that  [smile]

I just purchased one for 900 bucks, a bit steep, but worth it, I am warming up too semi automatics, and love the history of this one, I still love my revolvers Smith and wessons, and my Colt python , this python is sweeet in my tired eyes, but fun to shoot

That was an interesting read. A 1911 .22 sounds like fun. I am thinking about getting a 1911 Kimber. My local gun store has a wide range of them. I have a Ruger LCR .22 I purchased but have not fired. I may trade it in, if possible, for a 1911 .22. That just sounds like fun. I wonder what percent of the original value of my Ruger LCR .22 they would give me if I buy a new Kimber? Then I can buy a 1911 .22! Steve, what model 1911 .22 are you looking at?

It will be the Browning 1911-22. It is an 85% scale of the original 1911A1, so it will fit in my wife's tiny hands.  She has carpel tunnel so she needs a lightweight gun with a short trigger pull and very little recoil. 

Once she is set up, I will start hunting for my 1911.  I might go this weekend to do some more looking.
