Default Damn you, damn you all!

But only in the best of ways

Went to my local GS this morning and put down a deposit on my soon-to-be new pistol. A High Standard Crusader Compact 1911. As soon as Lipseys gets them in stock i'll have one the next day.

Thanks to all you 1911 guys for showing me the light.

There is no other pistol like a 1911.

You do know they're run in packs.

You start feeding one...

Good on you Moss - you've taken the first step in the addiction process. I'll go ahead and give you the unsolicited advice now - shoot the hell out of it before you decide to do any tinkering...

Welcome to the club!
I've got very little 1911 experience, under a year, but I agree with NGIB: shoot it a lot before tinkering with it.

Oh, and Jo is right as well. Soon you'll need another one.

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!
