I remember when junk was junk. RIA is what like somali pirates use. Now all of a sudden they're being compared to Colts and Mimbers. Then I see 1911 honks bashing the Taurus 1911 then in the same breath drop to their knees and sing praises about RIA I get confused. Is it just internet bias? One person reads somewhere that a Taurus jammed on him. Then reads one place where a RIA worked really well. And that sets the tone for the whole internet community.? IMO, Taurus is light years ahead of many gunmakers including the flavor of the month RIA. Still, my SIG 1911 pwnes all!!
