    I fell in love...

    The next day, I knew I couldn't live without that special one in my life.


    Permanently.


    Thursday night, the two of us left work and went straight to the range together.

    We spent about an hour getting to know each other better...

    And then proceeded to my house. Forever.


    Meet my new love:

    It should be a bumper sticker, A man and his 1911, it's a beautiful thing....

    a woman in this case.

    That's my question also. I know they are the lower class 1911s but that doesn't mean much to me. How does it run is the question? All guns have 1 thing in common, " They all kill the same!"

    I was hasty in my run to the range and didn't pick up my Jammit stands, so I was at the mercy of any targets left behind when I got there.
    There were a couple dozen intact clays scattered on the berm and I summarily picked them all off. So I'm calling it "good"... :D

    Well...it made friends with my Kimber and they decided they can share.
    So it's all good. :)

    I've owned 2 just like it and both were good shooters. I highly suggest you invest in some quality mags like Wilsons or Tripps as I'll bet it came with ACT mags - and they can be trouble...

    It did come with one ACT mag...but I've got some Colt mags I've used in it.
    I was going to shoot factory exclusively for at least a few hundred rounds, but I was feeling froggy today and decided to chuck some reloads through it.
    These are the first three shots with my loads from about 25 or 30 feet. No farther than that...no closer.
    (That's just a sticker on a paper plate stapled to cardboard...a very expensive designer target. :p)

    ....and thank God you didn't spring for one of those Nighthawk, Ed Brown, or Les Baers!

    Good job, enjoy your new pistol. Looks like you already are!
