It looks fuzzy. Does that cost extra?
Details man. We need details!
Yea sorry bout that, camra phones suck,lol.
Its a Springfield 1911 "loaded" in .45acp
Idk if this pic is ne better,lol
Just pulling your leg. Congratulations. The Loaded is an excellent pistol and I think you'll be happy with it.
Yea, I love the balance to the pistol, really feels good in the hand
does your camera have a macro setting (a button with a flower on it?)
Ive never seen the loaded model.
Very nice addition to the arsenal. Range report time!
Lol, I here that gonna take it out tomarrow hopfully, weather permitting
They also have one with built in rail on tha bottom, but I went for the classic look
After you fire it will it be the unloaded?
JK Looks good
Ha ha, Thanks
Congrats on the 1911 and an excellent choice of manufacturer
Nice Springer green, now go and get 'er dirty.
That pistol looks familiar.
Well fellas got to put some rounds through it today before the ran hit. This gun functioned flawless. not even a hitch. Real nice havin a quality firearm. Did notice that it does shoot a bit high. I think I might invest in a better set of sights for it. All in all, Im very pleased. Cant wait till my LTCH comes in, so I can keep it on my hip.
Make sure you don't carry it until you have put a whole lotta lead down the barrel. Especially as your first 1911.
BTW, "whole lotta" means more than 500 rounds of FMJ, then SEVERAL magazines of your carry ammo. Don't go cheap on buying extra carry ammo so you can run a bunch of it through there. If you ever decide to change carry ammo, you also need to completely test THAT ammo, too.
+1 and grats
I put a lil over 150 rounds through it today, an gonna try an go again next weekend. Just gonna have to get use to it. What would be a good distance to practice from? i shot from bout 25 feet today.
I usually stick with 7 yards, but will also usually run a mag or two at 10 yards, just for fun. Most self defense scenarios happen well within 21 feet, so if you're practicing for that purpose, then 7 yards is good.
5-7 yards is a distance you better be super good at, so a majority of your time should be at that range IMO. But you might as well play at longer distances every now and then. 25 feet seems a little far to me.
One of the ranges I shoot at, though, requires only full-length shooting, which is 50 feet. STOOPID!
