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!

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.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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