    I haven't gotten around to purchasing a traditional shot timer yet but it's nearly time. Today I started thinking, "Why on earth can't someone make an app for the Apple watch for this?". A little Googling says that there are a few apps for my watch. Have any of you tried one of these shot timer...

    Just took the two Guncrafters to the range this morning. Both guns ran flawlessly. Since I don't reload and I usually shoot weekly I limit myself to 50 rounds thru each gun. Unbelievable how many people are at the range weekly for CCW class. I shot allright. I am slowly improving.

    Last Friday I had the day off of work (thank you 9-80 schedule) so I decided to head to the indoor range. I only took one 1911 with me, my Les Baer Custom Carry, which is my EDC. Started off with dot torture at 3 yards scored 46/50, all four shots were dropped on the single hand drills; at least...

    Took a couple of 45's to the indoor range this morning. The No Name and the Colt pre 80 series. The colt has a horrible trigger but I still enjoy shooting it until I send it for upgrades. The No Name never ceases to impress me. Someday I hope to shoot close to it's capabilities. Not yet though.

    Unless I am pressed for time for some reason I enjoy this time almost as much as the next day at the range. Well, actually it's not even close but it's in the same direction. As I try to decide which 1911 to slip into the range bag I really feel the gratitude for this life I get to live. Having...

    Summertime for me is a clay shooting extravaganza. I actually prefer it to any other shooting I've ever done . I hear ya... go to the shotgun forum ya dumbass! Well I don't have many friends on the shotgun forums. I'd rather talk with people I like. Well, I officially ran out of money for the...

    Good morning, all, I've lurked in and out of 1911 Addicts on tapatalk for a while and figured the time had come to sign up. I fell in love with the 1911 back in my Army days. I started my career as a 19K, and served long enough ago that we were issued 1911s instead of Berettas. Which is a...

    I'm going on 81 years old and decided I wanted a as "close to GI 1911" in 9 mm at a reasonable price. I purchased a RIA GI model. I decided to replace all springs and most firing parts. I am now studying which parts need replacing. Any suggestions ?

    Now that people are getting their hands on them and writing good reviews, what's the wait time climbed up to now? A year?

    Upgraded my son from his single shot 410 to a 20 gauge O/U so it was time to try some clays! Went with a CZ Redhead reduced length (Thanks, Mark @ TexasPatriot), still a little large for him but gives him a little to grow into. needless to say by station 2 he was hooked ;)

    I was able to get out and do some shooting today. This is 5 shots each distance at 5, 7, 10, 15, 20 & 25 yards on a 3x5 index card with my STI Hex-Tac 9mm. As you can see, I only got 23 or 25 shots out of 30 on the card depending if you want to count the ones that barely hit the card or not...

    Got the call from my friend Dan at BBP. My first Guncrafter is ready. Just about 19 weeks on the build. This one is a NN Commander in .38 super. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. Hoping it ships tomorrow, here in two days at my FFL. So should be pictures posted by Thursday night. I had...

    Hello everyone - In NE FL, Jacksonville I just got my first 1911 in .45 after many years of planning and thinking I have years of Glock use in 9mm and won't be giving those up but I've always appreciated the craftsmanship and history behind the 1911. Funny thing though is that I don't have...
