I've managed to avoid the siren call of the 1911 for most of my life. For carry and home defense weapons, I've been more than satisfied with my polymer pistols. Recently, though, I had the chance to shoot a friends 1911, and I was really impressed. The gun seemed to almost aim itself and it was like I could not miss the target! So... I'm thinking of adding a 1911 to my collection. I'm still think I've got self defense covered with the existing pistols, but I'd like the 1911 purely as a range gun, for casual target shooting. Looking at the offerings of my FLGS, the Ruger 1911 Target caught my eye as something that might be a good match for what I want. The online reviews of this gun seem to be universally positive. Does anyone here have first hand experience with this version of the Ruger 1911? Are there any other similar guns I should consider? Thanks!
