I'm looking at getting a 1911 as a first handgun. I'm not getting it for any specialized purpose (e.g. home defense, ccw) but more as a utility/do-everything-reasonably-well gun. I have some experience shooting handguns in the past but no formal training, although I plan on getting some. I'm interested in just the basic "sights you can see and a trigger you can manage" type deal and nothing more. Would a Springfield Mil-Spec be a good option for me? Are there other options? Would I be better off just ordering a slide, frame and kit and building my own?
