As I have been wanting the Ruger but have been told that the Rem's some of the Sig's and Turas cost less and are better choices. The prices on all of those was at least $100.00 more and even the less expensive Phi inports or equal money than the Ruger prices. Am I missing something, has there been a major price increase across the board or what? I hope that Jim, Dan, and the others a lot smarter than I am will comment on this .
Steve, I have narrowed it down to STI, and Taurus. I am a Ruger fanatic but I have to admit there are better deals out there than just the Ruger. Also, this may sound weird (as many of you already figured out, I am totally weird) but I prefer a blued 1911. I don't like the shiny purdy look. That is not to say that I would not own one in stainless, but me preference is a blued pistol. That is just the weirdness in me I guess.
