I bought the 1911 a couple weeks ago. Shot up 2 boxes of shells that came with it. I like it a lot, but will be reloading. The only place that carries shells locally gets $30 a box!
I was in Eau Claire today and stopped at Gander Mountain. I asked at the gun counter if they carried ammo. The guy told me the manufacturer discontinued it ten years ago. I mentioned that it was introduced in 2011 and the guy told me I was wrong, then walked into the back room.
I try to buy local, I really do. Morons like that make it hard.
