I am looking to buy my first 1911 and would appreciate some advice. The primary use for this gun will be shooting it at the range. I know that I want a 5" barrel and I want it to be .45 acp. I want to do this right the first time and not buy a gun now that I will only want to replace in a year's time. My budget is around $1,250. I have rented 4 so far; 2 SA's (a TRP and a Mil Spec), 1 Kimber, and 1 S&W. Out of the 4 my favorite was the TRP by far. The range where I shoot doesn't have a Trophy Match for rent, which is disappointing because it is a gun that really interests me. Today while I was looking at the 1911s that they have for sale the sales person who I was talking to recommended that I spend another couple of hundred dollars and go w/ a Dan Wesson Valor. They don't have one of these for rent either... So for those who have experience w/ these guns any thoughts as to the Trophy Match vs The Valor? Also, how does the TRP compare to the Trophy Match from a quality perspective? Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks!
