Re: Difference between SR and R1 Ruger 1911
You need to define what you want first.
All 3 of those handguns are large. 2 of them are 1911's and if you don't know much about handguns I'd avoid them. Not that they are unsafe, they aren't as dummy proof as the new striker pistols or the double/single action as opposed to being just single action.
I think all 3 are well made.
But you really need to define what you want yourself, before you go to the gunstore. If you want a large steel single action that is beautiful and accurate, but has less capacity then get a 1911. If you want high capacity and 45 acp with a nearly dummy proof operation, get the SR.
If you want something more compact and concealable, look for something else.
The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
