    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...
  2. Range Reports & Reviews
    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.

  5. Range Reports & Reviews
    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...
  6. Range Reports & Reviews
    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?
