    just starting to upload photo's now. I'll caption them once i get a chance in my blog.

    quick notes on 1911's
    -Stopped by and talked to Ed & JoeC. The pair (Lefty - Righty) looked really nice.
    -The Ithica is a well built gun. all samples were nice and tight.
    -The Cabot still had some play in the frame/slide fit, so the tolerance of 1/2 a human hair goes out the window (IMO). They had a single frame and 3-4 different slides to go on it, and they all had the same movement. The also had the "South Paw" on display, which threw me off when i tried to lock the slide back and the slide stop was on the wrong side :lol:
    -RRA has a new polymer 1911 coming out with the target price of $800 (they are hoping)
    -STI is making families of guns, like the Tactical is now 5", 4" and 3". The Lawman & Spartan also have 3 sizes. They also have a new 2011 "Tactical" magwell coming out.
    -Nothing new with EB or LB
    -didn't look at Colt yet.
    -Talked to Ned Christiansen and Jason Burton for a while.
    -DW ECO and Specialist are typical DW quality.
    -Christensen Arms 1911's weren't fit like i was expecting.
    -Coonan had a "Purple bling" gun there. The trigger on the Coonan wasn't as bad as i thought it would be since it's a pivoting design.

    What was your impression of the Springfield XDS ?????

    I'm liking that micro .45 as a pocket rocket.

    I liked it. the trigger felt a little heavier than normal, but the size blows away the G36.

    Nice photos, thanks for taking the time, Don.

    I like Ned's work on the Delta. The red paint on the rear of the firing pin was an interesting touch that I kind of like. :lol:

    Good to see Campbell still out doing his thing. And Rob looks fast even in the still photos. :thumb:
