    Well, I am late to the party so I am not going to offer up any fix suggestions. I will restate
    that STI uses EXACT specs. No room for error.That said, I own a Spartan 5" .45, Lawman 4.0 9mm,

    Late to the party, but life does get in the way of play. The only spare time I have had has
    been spent at my LGR:D. All about priorities.I have been around 1911's more than most folks and
    less than so...

  • Posted in thread: Sig or Springfield???? Help on 04-08-2015 at 05:30 PM
    Probably overwhelmed Alpine:).Of the two choices listed, I would go with a Sig. My daily carry
    is a Sig Stainless Carry and it fits into my Galco holster that was designed for Colt.Built
    like a tank a...

    You mentioned that you were using Wilson Combat mags. I use them exclusively in my .45 1911's
    and they are flawless. So you made a good mag choice, sounds like now you just need to shoot
    the snot out ...

  • Posted in thread: A small question for the truly initiated on 04-08-2015 at 05:05 PM
    Since I always carry 8+1 in my 1911's, I see no need, personally, for a "press check". I have
    seen it taught at Front Sight and other defensive pistol courses, but I see it as one more
    chance for the ...

    Kingtuk IWB holster. Spare mag on the weak side.154947When I shoot it at the range, I
    substitute a STI 1...

    I carried a Super Blackhawk for white tails when I lived in New England. A lot of hunting there
    is in scrub, so 25-50 yard shots are common. My plan was within 50 it was venison, further out
    was Bambi...

    Any good full grain leather belt should do the job, but don't scrimp. I have been using Ariat
    (the boot maker) for several years. They are @ 1.5" wide, double layer. Good looking, great
    with jeans. I ...

    Bought my first, a Colt Officers model at 37. Since then with buying, selling and trading
    through the years, at 61, I have 4 of them, the ones I liked the best: STI Spartan 45, Sig SS
