I'm pretty much into HK's and Sig's myself.
With that said, there is nothing in this world quite like a high end 1911. Unless you've ever owned one much less shot one, you'll never understand.
It always makes me laugh when people that can't afford something nice take the time to bash what they can't have in order to convince themselves that it isn't better or that they don't need it.
I'll always have a soft spot for high end 1911's.
