    Hiyo. I had bought some Colt 1960s grips from Steve at @Integrity Arms a while back. Commander I had picked up a while back. Steve invited me over versus shipping due to shrinkage the grips are known for. I spent a good 4-5 hours hanging out at his shop, did some good shooting, and learn more about 1911 gunsmithing than I can pretend to forget. Steve mentioned he might be hiring apprentices soon and his shop/house is only a two hour drive. Hmmm. Anyways. Steve was a great host. I brought a bunch of toys to test fire for the first time. Steve helped me diagnose a sight in issue with a Ruger SR45 and helped me figure out an accuracy fitment issue with my 1968 Colt Commander. He was a great host and extremely hospitable! He’s not too bad on the 1911 thing either. ;)

    Here are pictures from today’s adventures at Integrity Arms. Thanks again Steve for your time and letting me shoot in your backyard!

    White deaf girl was scared stupid of Peter but the Fat Boy loves everyone lol. Was great taking some R&R today and shooting some for fun instead of work. Got this that don't know Ruger SR guns are stupid accurate pistols if sighted in right. Peter was killing the 2-3" spinner targets and some 4" steel knock downs with it after we dropped the rear sight a ton gun just shot excellent.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one zooming in on the pics of frames on the bench...;)

    Sounds like a great chance to meet a great guy. Glad Steve got a chance to shoot for fun, poor guy. Cute kitties btw.

    Might accelerate payment on that Blackhawk. The NM Blackhawk was a blast. Feel like I’ve been missing out!

    Thanks buddy, the white girl is deaf as a door nail, but absolutely beautiful.. She is just like a woman though. She come in as a kitten a few years ago, and took the boys, beds, toys, food bowls, hiding spots and everything lmbo.. Took complete charge of everything.

    You would have loved my SASS Blackhawk. Only two people I know didn't ND with the trigger on it. Me and Chuck Ris who did the trigger.
