Being that this is the 100th Anniversary of the 1911 Pistol, I decided to make a purchase recently. I have read a considerable number of reviews on many different manufacturers and decided on a very economical, but well built model from Rock Island Armory. I picked up the gun this morning, gave it a good cleaning and then went to the range. I'm very pleased with it. It shot well and performed flawlessly. It's my first pistol of this style and I think I will really enjoy shooting it more! It's the full sized Tactical model.
Smiley...I bought it from a local gunshop in the Bloomsburg area (good prices)..It's pretty large for concealed carry but will most likely ride along with me in the Jeep. They also make a mid-sized Commander style and a compact Officer style that would lend itself more toward carrying.
