3. The Dan Wesson Pointman guns are on Bud's for $1,200 and the Dan Wesson Specialist and new Valor are on there of $1,500.

Before someone flames me for using Bud's as a reference.....insert your own online dealer that has strong pricing and roll with them. There are many.

If all you want it a range toy....then save your money and go with the Range Officer in 9mm and you'll be able to feed it much more economically.

If you want a gun to protect yourself, your family and your home.....then move on into the Dan Wessons and know that you'll have great internals and a gun made for serious use right from the start. Nothing that you'll want to replace on it.
Thanks for the info. I want to stay with 45acp for two reasons, one...I just want a 1911 in 45acp haha and two I reload for 45acp already anyways so cost to shoot is not too bad. I was settled on stainless but the black finishes such as in the TRP look nice and I heard they cause less binding and such.
