    Are you really carrying Ball ammo in it (picture). I know it works just a lot better choices today rather than Ball.
    I am not worried about overpenteration of ball in 45 thats more myth than fact. (9mm ball different story )Just HP does more damage even if fails to open Just a question not looking for a Ball verses HP battle

    I saw one today at a gun show in Montgomery, AL for $339 new in box. Yes, Artz, it was a .45 ACP. I saw others at tables from smaller dealers from $359 to $429. I was shopping for something else, but you can bet the $339 gave me reason to pause and ponder long and hard.

    I voted wrong. I should have voted "had one, sold it"

    I had an RIA Commander. The grip safety would not work properly to allow it to fire. I've had Springfields, Colts, Kimbers, S&W 1911s, the RIA was the only one that ever did that.
