ok i know that auto ordnance sucks as a 1911 compnay. however im reading that kahr bought them out and that their thompson 1911tc is a very good pistol at a very competitive price. anyone ever shot one. no one around here seems to have one. i really want a 1911 but do not want to spend $1000. also i kinda want an american made pistol, are thompsons made in the us. any input would be nice.
