So I am on the hunt my my second pistol, and I am considering the Taurus PT1911. I have read mixed reviews on it, and a good friend of mine speaks highly of the PT1911 (he also has a Colt 1911 and says he likes the Taurus just as much). My first gun was a Taurus PT92, and I love it. I have about 500 rounds through it and it has worked flawlessly. Both pistols will be for home defense and range, as getting a CCW in CA is nearly impossible. The Taurus is attractive to me from a price/option standpoint. I'm hoping to hear from some other Taurus owners and of their experiences with the PT1911 against some of the similarly priced competition. Tanks in advance.
