As stated in my 'New Member Introductions' post on 6/14/2020, I've decided to make my next purchase (pistol no. seven) a 1911, which will be the first of my collection. I'm an aspiring USPSA competitor and have narrowed my choices down to the two options listed in the poll (both chambered in .45 ACP). Criteria for landing on these two options include availability, price point, and ready to go for a rookie right out of the box. I wish I could include a Dan Wesson Pointman 45 on the list of current options but no luck finding one at this time. Current retail in my neck of the woods is ~$950 for the Colt and ~$1,200 for the Sig. Your vote (and any additional guidance) would be much appreciated!
