This is not an argument thread so please don't make it one. I recently obtained a Colt 1911, my first 1911 I have ever owned and of course it was amazing. So a couple weeks later I find myself purchasing ANOTHER 1911 Springfield Operator. My question to you is are these guns worth it? If so what makes them so? If not, why not? I believe they are depending on what you get them for, they are woth every penny. At the same time I own and carry everywhere a s&w m&p 40 so it isn't like I favor one or the other. I just thought it would be interesting to get the feedback on this debate from some other experienced shhoters and gun owners.
