    Tomorrow afternoon I get to pick up my new RIA 1911 from gun jail! This is my first 1911 but I have a feeling it wont be my last. :D

    Good call on avoiding the crescent of shame, wouldn't want to look like too much of a noob haha.

    Not a huge fan of Greta's, I went through Tim over at Ft. Courage. They are a great little shop, down New LA Avenue by Wienerschnizel (sp?). What part of LA are you in?

    Californians are so angry, no waiting here. Must be time to move North Gregs!!

    Houses are really cheap up here right now but, there isn't any work either!!

    It was swimming in oil when I picked it up and everything seems to cycle smoothly. Should I take it apart and give it a good cleaning before I shoot it?

    Looks good Greg. I'd clean it, grease it and shoot it.
