Well my wife finally got to shoot a 1911 and loved it. I was really surprised she liked shooting a .45! We rented a Desert Eagle 1911 at my local range and it was a nice gun. I have my heart set on a Springfield Armory TRP Operator. I drool everytime I see it and every review I see about it says how much they love it. They aren't cheap and my wife and I both want a 1911 and she doesn like the TRP. I am just wondering is it best to try to save the money and get the TRP or settle and get something with a lower price tag? I figure some of you guys have been in the same boat.
