Default Back to 4

Yes, I did listen to y'all in the poll I posted yesterday about which alloy framed .45 I should get. I called my local shop this morning and asked what they had - and sure enough they just got one in that had my name on it. It's a Springer Loaded Lightweight Champion (PX9149LP), OD Green frame, black slide, and night sights. While I hate buying new, they made me a good deal so I picked it up at lunch time. Shame I won't have time to shoot it for at least 2 weeks...

Very nice. That's one of the few pistols I've seen that looks good with the OD green.

And my xd40sc. Since you don't have time to shoot it for a couple of weeks you could send it to me for a break in period and I'll have it back to you just in time for a range trip.

Congrats on the new 1911!

Congrats. I remember when I had only 4 1911's. That was some time ago.

Range report!
