I go for the Ruger, that thing has proven it self over the years. I wouldn't even touch the $262 1911, at that price it just screams "cut corners" Probably break before you hit 1000 rounds.
SHTF vs TEOTWAWKI you ask? SHTF, just some crap on the ceiling and walls, TEOTWAWKI end of the world as we know it. Orignally made by 9mm/®™©
