I went to the local gun range late yesterday in search of hi-cap 1911 9mm. I ended up purchasing the Rock Island Armory 1911a2 22 TCM/9mm. I immediately ordered some VZ grips as soon as I got home. Will be doing a range report in the coming weeks. I know that 1911 in 9mm are frowned upon by the 1911 crowd, but I couldn't justify spending the extra money for .45 (ammo and cleaning supplies) when I have all the necessary supplies for 9mm. So please don't flame. When the market calms down, I will be getting a 1911 in .45 ACP. $580 after tax for a 17 round 1911 9mm.
