Default My 1911

I'm a Ruger fan, so when I decided I wanted a 1911, I had to checkout their offering.

I went to Shoot Straight on Ulmerton Road in St Pete. Great staff, especially Tyler. The young man is very knowledgeable and friendly.

I went with the 4.25 barrel which is an easier carry. Tyler gave a lesson on the gun and I shot a box with it.

LOVE IT

Nice iron, Steve.

Those toenails need some serious work.

Ha, nice piece.

Sounds weird but every man should have his toes did at a salon. Much better scenery and wayyyy better than having your head half stuffed in your meat locker and getting cramps while you mutilate them yourself.

I had a chance to pick one of those up at the gun show a few weeks ago for $600, out the door. Regret not doing it now.

I should know better than to open these threads. A short list item for sure. Nice.

Hey Al, I know it's not a Kimber but focus on the gun man.

Thought mine would be an up charge.

Sweet, was going to get the Ruger whenI got my SA but the only one dealer had left was one everyone had been handling so I passed on it.

Love those 1911's, not sure why it took me so long to get one
