    I went and bought a RIA 1911 GI today, been wanting a 1911 and what I have seen and read about the RIA it seemed like a solid buy. For $400 I had to go ahead and get it. A friend has one that has been a solid shooter. Plus while I was there I picked up a S&W Sigma 9mm for the wife she really liked the way it handled, so it is hers. Ready to go to the range now!

    Congrats on your purchases! Make room for more 1911s. They tend to multiply.

    I will join in the congrats. There is nothing like a 1911, and the folks I know that have Rock Islands, love them.

    Good move!

    Welcome to the family of 1911 owners. Hang on to your first one, it's like a first car. Oh, start saving because you'll soon want another one.

    Congrates on the purchase of the RIA. It is a great handgun for the price. I picked up my RIA Compact and love it. Had some problems at first where it did not want to feed any ammo. I even had a hard time loading FMJ's, so I sent it back for some warranty work. I was surprised at how fast the turn around time was. Less then 3wks, RIA had a great warranty department.

    I have a friend that owns a pawn shop in Martinez Ga. He always gives me a good deal. I almost hate to walk in to visit cause I usually end up spending money! Truth be known I traded my SKS for the RIA and bought the Sigma for $175.
