    That's a good starter 1911. Very much like the little rock of crack that those drug dealers give middle schoolers on the corner.

    Enjoy!

    Ok range report...I shouldn't have bought it. I freaking love it! Not selling my Glock...but I am hooked like a crack addict. This is my first target from 7 yds. First two a little left....

    My first year of handgun experience was all 9mm, all the time. When I first went to the range with the .45acp I was actually a little nervous. I doubt you were, but I knew I was.

    I was surprised that the huge KaBLAMM that I heard around me from other .45's doesn't actually translate to the shooter. When I fire my 1911, it doesn't sound nearly as loud to me as when others around me are firing .45's.

    The recoil isn't that bad, either. Nothing like what I envisioned. Especially out of steel!!

    Good shot! I'll show u my ranger report at 10 yards with only shooting for 2 months or less. The 1911 is amazing

    Welcome to the club.
    Caution: 1911's tend to multiply if you're not careful.
    Don't say you weren't warned.

    Brother you have found a winner, personally I'm not a fan of lasers but that's just me. I wouldn't complain about the deal you got at all tho. She looks like she shoots good, again welcome to the brotherhood. As other have said they will multiply, my first Colt 1991 A1 conceived a Colt CCO and Colt Government series 80, then they bread me 2 springers, and I think my springers are gonna have another springer. I had a Kimber, but i sold it because it bit the hand that fed it.

    I don't know about anybody else, but my feelings of a good 1911 is one of awe. Most pistols shoot and function well, but the 1911 is a masterpiece. Surgical precision accurate, it is a modern marvel and a classic piece of art. I know in this forum most of us like different types of handguns but our love affair with our 1911s would make most wives jealous. Just want to say thank you Mr. John Browning for giving us this piece of art and to all of us for keeping his legacy alive.
