Beautiful

It's just like mine, except stainless. Have you shot it yet?

1911

I guess I lost this one. ?
Thanks guys.
SJMB, I've run a couple of boxes through it so far.
I'm happy with it for sure. Weather and work are screwing up my range time.
I hope for a cooler and slower summer than 2011 was.

The wife is the only gal at the range who has "held" it.lol
She liked it OK but prefers the .38 wheel guns.

daisy..

you need to talk to pard bout some of my "padre plinkers" .. Lee mixed up a batch. (correct me here if im wrong) that are based on the 115gr 9 conical nose semi wad cutter.. leave perfect round holes, go out at a speed a tad more than 158 wad cutters.. and about the softest shooting round that you could still use to stop the BG.. serious here.. vaq makes these with that hand loaders OCD that their going to shoot better than you can..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

As an aside,

I believe Vaq paid less for his Springfield than I did my Taurus..........What does that tell 'ya? Don't answer.....LOL!

Ditto,

(cough) Lowly Taurus owner here (cough) Vaq that is really a nice gun, even tho Taurus builds in many features into their PT1911, just not the same:-)

you have the Taurus 1911? I've heard good things about them. Then again, it IS a flawless design. :D

I have a Taurus (4410 AKA the Judge), and Taurus makes good wheel guns. I've heard that they've had issues with their semis, but I think that's been the PT line. It's a good company though. They are definitely earning a place in the world of firearms.

Vaq's SA 1911

Good to hear, Vaq. Sometime when we can meet up at a range, we can have our siblings meet and compare. I love mine, and it just seems to keep getting better. But I give it plenty of TLC. TBH gets jealous sometimes. lol
