New duty weapon?
I'm in the process of being hired by a couple of departments at the moment. A couple you can defer the issued weapon a couple you buy your own. Basically I'm familiar with handguns and always shot 1911s the best. I want to carry a 1911. I have a few options. I would want to spend under $1500. I want a 5in gun with a rail. My favorites at the moment are colt xse, Springfield lightweight operator, or sigtacops. I'm open to other suggestions. Any helpful thoughts or opinions would be apprecitated.
