    Got a Springfield .45 Loaded TRP for Christmas. Had the match barrel and bushing crio--cryo--kri-- oh heck frozen at 300below while still unfired. It's a constant companion. Took it to the gun club this morning and shot a couple of types of ammo through gallon jugs of water to attempt to determine which perform best at the distance I'd be shooting for home defense (no carry law in Il.). I think you'll love the accuracy and the 1911. I've owned a half dozen other types and continue to come back to the 1911 every time.

    Congratulations!

    The 1911 bug bit me a while back. It's pretty much over for me now...no cure.

    Nice choice
    It's like killing roaches - you have to kill 'em all, otherwise what's the use?

    Beware the 1911bug I've got a Kimber ultra cdp and love it along with a full size S&W. Great design - guess that's why it's endured through every major fighting conflict in the 20th century and still is used by fighting forces worldwide.
