Default Joining the club in less than 24 hours!

Tomorrow afternoon I get to pick up my new RIA 1911 from gun jail! This is my first 1911 but I have a feeling it wont be my last.

Not a huge fan of Greta's, I went through Tim over at Ft. Courage. They are a great little shop, down New LA Avenue by Wienerschnizel (sp?). What part of LA are you in?
