I am proud to say I got my first 1911! I am so stoked! I have looked and looked and didn't want to spend thousands on one,especially my first one. So after much debate I came home from my local gun shop a proud owner of a Ruger SR1911. I love it so much. My first ruger also. I was torn between it and a m&p 9c but being that I have a m&p 45 and a lot of other carry guns....I went with a classic. Its finish is great and the overall quality of the gun is great. And one of the more important things for me anyways is that every pin screw and so forth are American made 100%. This has been a big factor for me when choosing my spikes tactical ar15, m&p 45, Kelly tec and so on. OK I'm done just wanted to brag. I feel like I just bought into a different class!
