This was my first handgun, an RIA Tactical .45 ACP. I got her just before summer this year. She's definitely a shooter, and fits nice and comfortably in my hands. The only modification I'm gonna make are the grips. I like the smooth wood grips, but they tend to get a bit slippery when shooting in the warmer months without gloves. I'll probably go with a pair of green micarta custom etched grips from VZ Grips.
