My new gun's almost here!!!!
So this past weekend I purchased a brand new Rock Island Armory GI 1911A1 .45 ACP 5" from budsgunshop.com. I wanted to go with something simple, nothing flashy, nor high dollar. 423.00 dollars and a 10 dollar transfer/paperwork fee at FFL.
The gun is in transit through 2nd day air UPS and to be delivered by the end of the day tomorrow to the FFL. I'm headed to the woods this weekend and I'd like a little advice/help.
--Being new to the 1911 scene and .45 ACP, anybody have tips for picking the best .45 ACP ammo for my particular model gun or closely similar?
--Also, need help with a holster. I like the IWB sleeping dog holster from condors flight, but I haven't seen one for a 1911. I necessarily don't need an IWB holster; just need something concealable and durable.
--Grips. Need advice with grips as well. What are you guys using out there, what are some good manufacturers and non-budget busting grips. (Honestly would rather spend my money on ammo) Would like to keep the whole gun all black so particularly no wood grips. Something comfortable for medium/large hands.
Re: My new gun's almost here!!!!
I can't offer any advice. However, if you wouldn't mind PMing me after you get to spend some time at the range with it and let me know what you think, id greatly appreciate it.
I've never owned an 1911 and haven't been a big fan of them aside from their looks. I'm in the market for an RIA to be my introductory one, so the feedback would be great.
