Hello all, newbie here from Indianapolis. My name comes from being a longtime NY Yankees fan, along with the NY Giants, and the Colts, of course.

I found this site through comments over at 1911forum, so here I am. I am going to be buying a 1911, so I'll be reading up on the best things for what I need. I want one that handles hollowpoints well, and it has to be around $500.

Right now my frontrunners are the Taurus and the RIA Tactical. I might consider a Springfield if I can find one in my range. There is a shop here in Indy, Elmore's that has scores of 1911s, but I don't think they carry RIAs. They tend to carry the high end stuff.

The 1911 I'd really like to get, the actual Colt, is out of my price range. Elmore's quoted me $850 for a starting Colt.

So I'll be studying the merits of probably the RIA Tactical and Taurus. The only thing that concerns me about Taurus is the stories I keep reading about their customer service.

I'm only interested in a 1911 for what it was intended for. Close range personal protection. Aside from practicing at the range, I won't be competing or doing long distance target shooting, etc.
