Does anybody know where I can get my 1911 bead blasted in San Diego?

I have an Essex that I'm planning to re-finish in Duracoat.

Whoever is spraying the duracoat should also do the blasting.
You want to get the duracoat on the metal right away.
Not a day later or an hour later.
Minutes later.

Make sure you ask what they are using for media and at what pressure?
Once the finish is removed the new finish or at least a pretreatment needs to be applied right then or it will rust
