Hey guys, i guess the most of you know i will move to Texas the next month
and know i have a lot of very important things to do... one of them is to choose a Weapon for myselfe
my Girlfriend have a S&W .38 and a Bushmaster AR15

i was thinking about a 1911 as Pistol and a M-14 as Rifle but wich one
- 1911 ... should i take a original from Colt, ore a different brand .. an old ore a new one
- M-14 .. from Springfield ore is there a better brand, classic with wood stock ore a EBR ...

I asked that same question about the 1911 .45, and all the shooters up where I go camping told me I'd be best off with an original Colt 1911 - as in old, original, from the era (in good condition).

I dont know anything about how they shoot, but i do like the original models of each gun, theyre 2 of my favorites. The m14EBR looks interesting if you're into the whole modification thing but i think that the standard wood is just a nice classic look.

My granddad qualified as a pistol marksman in 1973. Was then put on a professional hand gun team and taught everything you could possibly think of that was even remotely related to pistol marksmanship. He retired a Buck Sergeant he has been to a lot of places in the military, always carrying a Colt .45. But when he got back to the states and started experimenting his favorite became Kimber. He recommended to me a Kimber .45 custom II. But any of their full sized hand guns sound great from the rumors I hear. This company started producing in 1996 but quickly became popular pretty quickly because of their quality.

As for the M-14.. No idea lol

Some dude named Trent had a Kimber .45 this last summer. I didn't like the look of it (it barely resembled the Colt 1911). Had a rubberized hand grip and all that.

You've seen my replica 1911, right? Silver plated with Mother of Pearl custom hand grips - a Llama .22LR :

RIA 1911 tactical/Springfield GI 1911/Kimber/FN/SIG/Para/ All have 1911's in all sorts of calibers. I owned a RIA 1911 and was a damn good shooting pistol. Springfield GI 1911 is the next in line for cheaper hard working pistol. The others are all gun porn, I talked to some ATF agents that had kimber's (this is in NC) they had lots of problems with the kimber custom 2's and went to SIG. Now on to the M-14 , m-21, Socom 14. These guns for some reason cost a arm and a leg, Like most rifles chambered in .308 (for example G3, FAL) your going to spend anywhere from $1200-$2000 on a decent semi auto .308 caliber rifle. If you find a legit m-14 under $1000 then take it to a gun smith and have them check it out.
