Set backs are understandable. We've all had them so don't get your hopes down. Good news though this gives you time to research and monitor pricing trends. Take your time, cash in hand opens alot of options.

You might want to consider your local gun range and renting a few different options. It's a cheap way to learn what you like and any day at the range is a good day.

The Norinco 1911a1 clones are overbuilt and the best bang for your buck at that price point but they’re few and far between nowadays it seems. A lot of them can be found with aftermarket goodies attached which makes finding stock NIB ones harder to acquire but on the bright side it’s a benefit to be able to get a used 1911a1 with a bunch of bells and whistles for a reasonable price. I like them a lot.

You’ll never regret a Springfield, Ruger or Smith & Wesson. All well made and all have excellent warranties. Dan Wesson is outstanding for the money.

I ran in to a small setback. My car died, and I had to spend a good portion of my sock drawer fund to fix it. Maybe someday I will get my covid bucks, and I can start looking again.
I hear you. I had to put a clutch in my truck but was delaying it had my heart set on a Standard Manufacturing blue 1911. Then my cars brakes went out that needed new master cylinder, and 2 rotors. So I picked up the clutch kit at the same time because I was getting 15% over $300 at the parts store. Then had a family emergency and that set me back yet again.

Well, close. My wife decided she was tired of my fleet of unreliable cheap cars, so now I have a new Subaru.

I'm still working on the 1911.

Look at it this way you may be 1911less momentarily but at least you’ve got a reliable vehicle that’s fuel efficient! I had to sell an Ithaca deerslayer to get my car rewired, have the alternator replaced, and throw a new set of tires on there and as soon as I go to get it out of the shop the starter went out the moment I brought it home and parked it so I can empathize. :wallbash: A week after I got it back the automotive shop that did the work randomly burned to the ground coincidentally.:wrongdoor:
