I'm hoping to hit the range this Saturday. Not only will it be the first time firing the R1, but it will be my first time ever firing any 1911 or 45 auto. Up until now all my handguns are 357, 9mm and recently added 380 auto. My military experiance is with the 9mm M9 too.
I saw the Captain America movie last night and enjoyed seeing that he carries a 1911. How appropriate!
Some more stories from the gunshow last weekend...
When I was buying the R1 from DK firearms, I mentioned that I also had my eye out for the Ruger SR1911. He said he had a Ruger at the last show, but it didn't even make it to the opening. Another dealer came over and bought it even before the show opened.
I seriously considered the "Enhanced R1" for $200 more. It has a fiber optic front sight which I decided I didn't like on a pistol. I have a BB gun with a fiber optic sight that I like, and I think I'd like the fiber optic sight on a shotgun or a hunting rifle. I wouldn't like the fiber optic sight on an assault rifle or any handgun. So, that just made it all the easier decision to go with the lower priced version with the high visibility white dot sights.
