Default Got a Springer Loaded.

Finally! I am now part of the 1911 world. I was actually ready to order it from Bud's, but when I called my FFL I asked if he had one. Belive it or not, he had the exact same model I was going to order from Bud's. I went and bought it today for even less than it would have cost from Bud's and the transfer fee.

Everytime I get a new gun, I am just so happy with the no wait. 10 minutes after the paperwork was filled out, I was walking out with it a happy and smiling man.

Welcome to the wonderful world of the 1911. What are your plans for the weapon?

Carry? Home Defense? Any mods you have planned? When will we see a Range Report??

I look forward to hearing your impressions of what I consider to be the greatest handgun ever invented.

Thanks, JD. I just want to be able to play with the big boys.

Anyhow, my plans are to shoot it a bunch. Since it is in my home, it will be ready if needed, but my shotty is the go to. As far as carrying it, I am more of a revolver carry guy, but that may change.

I plan on getting out in a day or two and hopefully by then I can post some target pics. This is the first time I've ever bought a gun and not shot it the same day, so I'm itching.

Very nice addition. There seems to be a lot of 1911 and Elsie Arrr purchases going on around here, must be something in the water.

Have fun shooting it.

Very nice. I'm hoping to get a 1911 later this year, wavering between the Springer Loaded and the DW Valor. Will probably go with the Springer unless I somehow luck into a pile of money, so let us know how it shoots!

Thanks everyone.

I want to publicly thank NGIB for his insight and help in the choice I made. JD was a big help as well. With out those guys, I would have probably ended up with a base model and a few hundy in upgrades...most of which this one came with. Thanks men.
