Default My newest pistol

I just brought home a Ruger SR1911. It was at the last local gun show. Somebody else wanted it; but, didn't have the necessary Kalifornia papers to get it on
the first day of the show and on the second day of the show the guy never showed up. These pistols aren't on the Kalifornia roster of approved handguns
because they don't have micro-stamping(nor do any others, either). I told the seller I wanted it and yesterday the 10 day wait was over and I brought
it home. Next step is to take it to the range and see what it will do.

Congratulations on a fine pistol. I've had my lightweight commander SR1911 for a little over three years now and it's the most accurate of the handguns I own.

Im not a huge ruger semi auto handgun fan but the 1911 rugers ive shot have all been every bit as nice as my kimbers and springfields. Good bang for the buck as is (I have to admit) the lc9 and lcp.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

Congrats on your new shooter. I'm glad I don't have to go through what you do to buy a gun.

I had rangemaster duty yesterday and the Ruger got a little warm. It handles real well and digested 2 boxes of ammo.
In the first 2 magazines about 4 rounds went downrange before I was ready. I'm not used to a trigger that is lighter than any I've had before.
Once I figured out the trigger all was well. I was shooting factory 230gr. ammo. There were no hiccups of any kind and I'm looking forward
to more trips to the range with it. The Novak style sights were dead on and easy to see with my old eyes. This .45 is a keeper.

The only 1911 that I own is a Ruger SR Commander. I shoot it better than any other semi auto that I own....FNS-9 is close. If I were smart I would carry it more. Mine has night sights and lives on my nightstand.

My last 1911 was DW Pointman 7 and the Ruger shoots every bit as good!

Kinda comforting to roll over at night and see your 1911 awake and looking at you.
best wishes
