I hate gun shows .....
... I end up spending too much money. Wifey and I went to the Eagle Arms gun show in Oaks today, looking for a nice 12 gauge trap gun for her and I ended up with this abomination (thanks babe) .... (my first venture into both a 1911 and 45 auto) Never did get a trap gun, but we picked up some tasty jerky.

Allow me to introduce my (new to me) Ruger SR1911 Custom, with Crimson Trace front activated grip & ported slide. She has had trigger work and an extended slide lock put on as well.

I know, my photo's aren't as good as EM's.
Congrats! I love that 2 tone color scheme on guns.

With the laser and the futuristic looking slide it looks like it should go Pew! Pew! instead of bang. Big Grin
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.
Yeah... You're gonna be drawing that a lot for practice. Mmmm....
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
Wow, that is one slick looking rig!

Welcome to the dark side!!!

New to .45ACP?

When you pushed those rounds into the mag did you sort of understand where the many myths, like "if you just hit someone in the ARM, you'll kill them." come from?

Remember the group shoot where the Corbon guy brought the ballistic gel .... I knew it then, it's just that 9mm was less expensive Tongue

Good looking gun! 1911s are very addictive. They're my favorite type of pistols to shoot at the range, and their history is quite impressive. In less than a year you'll own a commander sized 1911 and a 1911 in 9mm. me Smile

Well I took this fine firearm to the range today, if/when I can get my hands perfectly steady it's, as Marisa Tomei said in 'My Cousin Vinny', "dead on balls accurate".

My first few shots from the gun using American Eagle FMJ rounds.

Second set using Remington Golden Saber +P JHP rounds.

Third I used a few semi wad cutter reloads a friend (yes I have one or two) gave me and some more of the American Eagle FMJ rounds.

Wifey, as she has done with nearly every gun she has ever picked up was tearing the center out of the target too. It's a nice, decent looking and great firing gun.

On all three of the above targets I used the Crimson Trace laser, really something to be said about a properly zeroed in laser. For a few of the shots I had the gun slightly lower than my line of sight using only the laser and I hit where I was aiming.

..... and off we go.
Sweet looking gun what an amazing find. Nice shooting.
The law? The law is a human institution...
Beautiful gun, congrats!!

You left out the all important detail--what did it set you back?

I love the look and feel of 1911's, and you have a very nice one right there.
