Years ago, I got to shoot many 1911's thanks to my older brothers. I've always wanted one. When I noticed a local dealer had the Taurus PT1911 on sale for $399 I had to have one. They also had the PP1911 AR for $449. Dang, tough decision. I got one with the rail!
I know Taurus isn't the sexiest 1911 but she's got some real potential. I think some jewelery for the rail would be nice. Maybe something in green. Then a nice dress to slip into. Maybe leather or even remora. I've always liked girls with minimal make up but in this case a nice dual tone finish might be in order.
I'm looking for advice on lasers, holsters, coatings, and triggers.
I'd also love to see pics of your 1911.

Brownie2,

Congratulations on your first 1911. I know there are those out there that hate them, there are those that love them. I am the latter

I have a couple, my TRP, Range Officer and Light Weight Champion Operator



I have the 9mm Range Officer as well


And Currently have a Custom build in progress from Chris James of Combat Precision Technology here in Atlanta

Congratulations, my wife has a pt1911 in 9mm that she loves to shoot. It is a good inexpensive entry level 1911.

YRUALEG...Nice RO in 9mm. I love my 45 RO and want the 9mm version as well.

Thanks E.T. , The only complaint I have about the entire Range Officer Line is that rear sight...It's sharp as all get out. I swapped mine for a Harrison LPA

Someone on ODT was selling a Serpa drop rig for a 1911.
I believe one is listed here, also. Rangeguy74 or something like that.

Check out Garrett Industries they make a great Kydex and Leather lined holster ( not just for 1911's either) I would suggest one, I use mine for IDPA

Thanks guys.
I like to conceal carry. I know the 1911 isn't the best for that. I'm a bit thin and that doesn't help. I like to carry cross draw.
I use a Remora with my compact EDC. Maybe the 1911 will have to be my winter time EDC.
That Garrett holster does look nice. I like that it is not so big and bulky.
A lazer would be nice to have in a home defense situation. Anything good and cheap?
Any good youtubes on cerakoting?

Brownie, did you get the double-stack? I'd like to have one of those.
