Love the Taurus, it shoots very very well. Better than me I am sure lol. Wish that I had bought it when they were a little cheaper but that's the way the ball bounces. All the bells and whistles that one would want. A springfield set up the same way would run about 7 bills.
I have not got to shoot the Hi Power as of yet but plan to this weekend if I don't get frozen out. Even if I do, I'll run a box thru it. Gun looked to have not been shot hardly any at all.
There is a very good site for .45's at www.1911.org. Very informative and has write ups on a lot of different guns.
That Hi Power shot really well. I put a hundred through it yesterday and it had more than acceptable accuracy. Will make a nice addition. BTW, it was really cold yesterday, the hi power is all that I shot. John
