I'm relatively new to guns.....just over a year and a half. I read alot...want more than I will ever be able to afford. My first gun was a Sig Sauer P225. I'm very pleased with it and intend to buy a P220ST but I am interested in something different as my next purchase. Which manufacturer's 1911 would you recommend for a first time 1911 owner. I am looking at some of the kimbers and I really like them but I would be interested in what experienced gun people have to say. I would really like to make an educated purchase. I hope I'm not sounding too ignorant here . Thanks in advance!
