I'm drooling over all sorts of 1911's out there. I'm looking at Kimber, Wilson Combat, Springfield Armory, and more. What I really want to ask is what make/model is good to start with? I want something that is reliable enough for carry and defending the house, but not looking to drop $2500 for my first one. For a first 1911, what comes to mind with respect to the following? -- Ease of use -- Safety -- Reliability -- Comfort -- Customization -- Value (price/resell) Thanks!
