congrats on having fun at the range with your new firearm..... I am going to be in Moline, IL in a couple weeks for a concert and plan on stopping buy the armory to take a look around.
in your post however you said, "My first couple of clips were 185gr JHP and here's the result from 10 yards" I was just wondering how did you fit clips into a 1911? personally I would think magazines would work better.
I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

Nice looking gun.
Don't worry, there are clip police on every gun board.
They will get over it.

I usually have good intentions when I play "Mag/Clip Cop".

I imagine disreputable auto mechanics do something similar.
We'd like to think that our friendly neighborhood weaponsmonger is a good, clean, honest fella, but jackals abound.
Consequently, I was a LOUSY salesperson. I'd end up over-educating the customer, to the point where they couldn't buy from me, as they had to go home and filter the information I blasted them with. Then, they'd invariably come back to the store and buy the stuff from a different salesperson. Oh well. I wasn't paid on commission, and the store still got the sale.

Nice write up/range report. Glad you like your new pistol. I have my eye on the PT1911, but one never knows what sort of ideas might put one over the edge on choosing something different. I do figure the RIA's and the Taurus 1911 to be the best values out there on the 1911 models. Never actually thought about one in the compact size though. If I could shoot as good as you have done with a compact 1911, I'm sure it would be well worth having.

He's right about them being pretty accurate.
