Hey guys,
I am going to buy a handgun for self-defense very soon, I've handled rarely a few guns, I'm very familiar with the taurus 24/7 pro and pt99. Although for my first gun I'm thinking of a Taurus 1911 .45 ACP.

Does anyone know its price, whether its available and what are the differences between all the Taurus 1911 models using .45 ACP.
And what good gun would i be able to get within 80k.

And what would you recommend for me as a first gun?

Welcome to Pakguns bro. Yes PT1911 s a awesome gun and yes it can be used as a first gun as it has a manual safety and grip safety. But can you tame the recoil of .45ACP? And soft SA trigger is prone to have a accidental discharge. If you can over come these thing and the weight and large frame when your Conceal carrying it. Then go for it...

Thanks bro, Unfortunately my budget is of max 70/80k. Also, do you know how much .45 rounds cost?
