We spent the weekend up north at the inlaws, and went out Friday morning to have some fun. Also, we took one of my 13-year-old girls on her first shooting outing, and she loved it. She started with the .22 and before long was comfortable shooting .38spl from my late dad's Python. We learned that a .357 hollowpoint makes a watermelon explode. And, I finally got to shoot my new RIA Rock Standard 1911 for the first time. Which would be my first time shooting a 1911 of any kind. I had one FTF in the first magazine and that was it, no other malfunctions from 70-ish rounds - a box of 230 grain ball and about half a box of semi-jacketed hollowpoints. I love the trigger. It's not a Python, but there's zero take up or creep, and it breaks crisply - not sure what the weight is. I need range time to really find where the sights are zeroed to, but I suspect they're right on, and the weak link is me. The big point is that I'm hooked. It's a hoot to shoot and I'm happy I finally got it.
