I've decided I'm going to get a 1911 (probably, as long as I find one that fits my needs). I'm looking for a couple characteristics in the gun, and maybe someone can help point me in the right direction. I'm a glock guy. I love their look. I love the reputation. I just want to get into 1911s now. I'm looking for a QUALITY gun. You know how they say "a Kimberly is a gun you show your friends, a glock is a gun you show your enemies"? I'm looking for that 1911 that you can do both. I'm looking for a nice sharp looking 1911, that is also a workhorse. I plan on carrying it, so it needs to be able to handle wear and tear. I also want it to be a nice looking gun that I can show off. I'm particular to SW e-series, something with a barrel length of less that 4 -/2 inches. But I'm not sure of the guns reputation. Any other similar guns around that I'm unagware of that someone can recommend? Something with a good reputation, nice on the eyes, and is not gonna loose its screws while being carried for 10 hours at a time.
