    Bought a new gun today!

    I just purchased a RIA 1911. I'm very pleases with the look and feel. I especially like the full guide rod it came with and I bought it for only 420 bucks so that is a major plus. Especially since my last 1911 was close to 800.
    It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!

    You should have come on down to NC. Local dealer sells the RIA 1911 for about $340.00. Its made in the Phillipines and I understand from some friends that if you got a good one you will be very happy. They apparantly have improved their quality over the past few years.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Sounds good! Pics would be nice. I've handled the RIA's and the PT1911's. They were neck at neck for me for a little bit. I'm still going for a PT1911 at first chance.

    Cool. Please post a pic if you can. I don't think I have ever seen one (that I know of) and that fits my price range.
