Default I Have Finally Arrived!!!!!!!

So......after about 8 years or so of lusting after 1911's on the market, and dreaming of owning one, I can finally say that I'm a proud owner of a 1911 pistol.

It's not the fanciest pistol on the market, but I'm loving it nonetheless. I just purchased a nice little Rock Island Armory 5" 1911 pistol. It came with two 8 round magazines, a nice case, and pretty wood grips, and I purchased 2 more Kimber magazines (they seem to work well with the RIA). I also purchased a Hogue grip. I like the actual wood grips that came with it, but I have a fondness for the more aggressive (and comfortable) black Hogue grips.

I am itching to get this thing out to the range.

I had to trade in my Hi-Point .45, and my Hi-Point 9mm to help pay for the cost of this beast, but it didn't other me.

I figured I can either own 2 Hi-Point pistols, or one 1911 pistol. It was a no-brainer for me...lol.

Now I can finally post in this section....lol.

Welcome to the 1911 family.... Godfather of all modern semi auto handguns, handed down by Odin himself through the genius of John Browning.

No Dude! You want to keep the secret inside the family. Don't let the masses know the power you now possess....It's a private and exclusive fraternity....

The bad thing was I knew what y'all were talking about. I've shot 1911's alot over the years, but I could never get around to purchase one because of circumstances and whatnot. Now I can finally stop worrying about it, cuz I have one of my own. It's not as pretty as some of the other 1911's I shot, but I don't care. I kinda like them ugly, and mean lookin....lol.

Ok dude, I promise I'll keep it cool-like (ssshhhhhhhhhhh.........). I won't name my pistol "Thunder of Odin" or anything. I'll just call it "Teh Uber Leet Boomstik!!!".

I wish I could afford one...but it'd have to be an authentic US Army.

Springfield does make the MILSPEC G.I. 1911 pistol. I'm not sure of the price (I know it's more expensive than an RIA, but less expensive than a Kimber), but it seems that the pistol is true to original 1911 form.

Keep looking. It took me a long time to finally get one. Don't wait. Make it happen....lol.
