Hey guys I just picked up my RIA Tactical 1911
Its my first 1911 AND my first .45
I think I fared quite well. I stayed at 20' and after some sight adjusting I was able to get decent shots in the COM
I'm VERY pleased with this 1911 I shot 170 rds and not one single problem.
now on to pics

and target from 20'

My C9 has so far been ALMOST flawless I think I'm at about 300 rounds now and the only issue I had was when a friend was shooting she had a round that didn't chamber all the way.
It could have been limp wristing though since it was her first time to the shooting range
Overall I'm VERY happy with the value I've gotten out of this gun.
Its fantastic.

Target at 20' 50 rounds...

Pretty good shooting with both pistols. Keep practicing at that distance, and the closer ones will be a piece of cake!

Exactly what model is that RIA? I'm really aching for a 1911, and the RIAs seem to be the right way to get into them for the best money. I really like the looks of that one. It's a full size, isn't it?

Thanks! That gives me the part number. I have a guy who special orders everything for me, at a price I can't usually touch anywhere else. I'll see if he can beat this when I'm ready. (as in, have the money.)

While I love my 9mm's, there's something about that 1911 platform that calls out to me. I think because it was the first widely used semi-auto, it just screams out "classic."

I have one of those RIA and I can't seem to put it down at the range. May have to get a 9mm in the 1911 platform just to make it cheaper to shoot.

Me too, but it's sort of like the AR platform for me. I like them, and want them, but...there's always tomorrow. Made the move on the AR when Obama made me think maybe tomorrow wasn't going to happen. :evil: Might need to get into the 1911 soon, too, just because... :wink:
