Default New 1911

I have just purchased my first full size 1911. A Sig Sauer GS 1911 45 BSS. I like Sig's for their quality, accuracy, and shoot ability. I brought the gun home disassembled it and gave it a good cleaning and oiling then went to the range. I ran a hundred rounds through it and was not disappointed at all. It is accurate, I usually shoot at 25 yards, has a decent to handle recoil and functions flawlessly. Nice gun. I am very pleased with my new purchase.

I do have a 45 acp, a Kimber ultra crimson carry. I have had it for 18 months or so. It is a very fine gun and I do carry. The Sig is my first full size 1911. I have shot and carried a Colt 1911 many years ago in the Army. As an Armor crewman/ tank commander we were all issued the Colt 1911 with the normal "flapped" shoulder holster. (Must be a throw back to General Patton). It had been so long ago I forgot how large this gun is. Now that winter is fast approaching here in the frozen tundra of Minnesota I may start to carry this beast. All in all I do love this gun and really love shooting it. Now to learn how to reload so I stop spending $$$$ on ammo.....
