jyack,

Happy Birthday! And that is really nice! Great Dad you have there! Cherish the time with him! Dads are not around forever!

Keep your weak hand thumb away from the back of the slide when shooting! LOL! :D

A colt feels like no other 1911, there very nice and you will be very pleased. You can feel the quality, i wish i never got rid of mine. That first shot will wow you

That's one hell of a surprise.

That's one fine piece there jyack45!

Just remember that's a target pistol. You should shoot standard load 230 gr ball ammo.

Before you try any hotter loads be sure to change out the recoil spring. And there's no need to run HP's through a Gold Cup.

Enjoy your Colt.

Some mild lead SWCs are also nice to shoot in a target 1911.
