I finally got two - well, umm, almost - matching weapons. I got my M1911 on sale for less than $800 (display model) and I couldn't be happier. I took it to the pistol range last month and am pleased to say that I haven't forgotten how to shoot my 45 since the Corps took them away in 1985. God I hated that Beretta; sorry guys, I have small hands. I love my little Sterling for the same "simplicity" reason, even though it has it's flaws. I'm sure the 45 will not be giving me any problems.
