Long story short, I had to sell my first 1911 to pay for some bills. Regretted selling her ever since. It's been almost 6 months looking for another one till last December when my LGS had one in stock. Bought it instantly. I had to have it back because it was my first. She was my favorite shooter and was going to pass it down to my son when he's old enough. I got her out of jail last week and couldn't be any happier.
