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!

Check out the mag base plates as well, vast improvement over the plastic factory ones.

We went 1911 shooting today; I shot my SIG 1911 Nitron and my sister shot her SIG 1911-22.

First impressions: both are great right out of the box. The .22 did have a few FTFs i would think ammo related, but its a tack driver as was the .45 I'm Very impressed with both. I just wish the .45 were a bit more affordable to shoot. The range had the audacity to charge $33 a box (member price) so we only put 50 rounds thru the pistol, but not one issue. We had one of our friends with us (retired LEO) he was impressed with all of our SIGs (we shot my p229 as well).

Sis wants to change out the grips for something lower profile. From what I have read on this forum, apparently 1911 disease has already set in.

I gotta admit, I always thought the 1911 platform wasn't for me but I have to say, I was way wrong.

Just keep me in the loop when there's a deal on .45 ammo.
