Hello folks,

I thought I'd drop in and get things going... I recently acquired a new RIA 1911 in 45ACP... my first handgun. <brag> Got it for my birthday from my awesome wife :D </brag>. I've only had the gun for a little over a month and a half... and I'm already reloading my own ammo and have casting equipment on the way. I'm even on the waiting list for the local gun-club for range access. I think I've come down with that same thing that has afflicted many of the folks here... :rolleyes:

After lurking around for a while, this seems like a hospitable place to hang out and swap stories, ideas, tips, tricks, information, news, etc...

Happy shooting.

Allen.

You're off to a good start. What is your next fire arm purchase?

Way to jump in with both feet!

Be careful.

I'd trade it for an EBR. Hell you've had it for a few days and you do need a rifle. Seriously, I would advise taking a basic handgun course for safety or review.
