I have been a 1911 owner for a grand total of three hours, and here I am already Did not get into shooting until about a year and a half ago, and have built up a modest collection of polymer framed pistols (Glocks and Rugers) a couple of AR's, and a few shotguns. Fell in love with an in-law's Colt m1911 circa 1915, and started my search for a good first 1911. Settled on the Ruger SR1911, and have been searching since it came out. Finally snagged one online yesterday, and my local FFL called me in to pick it up today. Will take it home tonight to clean and lube (per suggestions from this site), and hope to put a few hundred through it this weekend, if not sooner. The site looks great so far. Glad to be here.
