Re: Star pistol
Star makes good 1911-inspired pistols, often without the grip safety, which I prefer anyway. These are generally judged better than the Llamas and some other imports you'll see advertised. I have owned a couple of Star PDs and been delighted in all aspects. They are clearly not the most modern pistols but they are sufficient, well made and well finished -- they do work, by the way, and are reliable enough for defense. A set of aftermarket grips can dress them up if you like that sort of thing. The Star BMs are always praised by those that own them -- in my experience.
