My first 1911, Happy Birthday from my beautiful wife!

Well the wife and kids pulled a fast one on me tonight! She was home an hour and a half early telling me to load up and put a blind fold on.....took a short drive and a short walk...through the door and I knew...aaahhh the smell of gun oil!! Well she said pick out what ever you want...you'd think a dream come true like that scene in Sweet Home Alabama at the ring store! Well looked at a 5-7 and PS90 naw....looked at a few Volquartsen's nope...something I wouldn't buy for myself...a 1911 sounded good! Now which one, used Ed Brown, a Rock Island Armory 22TCM/9mm, a SA...nope this one caught my eye and the look was over!

What makes a safety ambitious? Does it disengage itself? If it's really ambitious, it will install itself.

Sorry, long day, just amusing myself.

As for an Ambidextrous safety, most will require the right side grip panel to be cut out for the tab that holds the right side in place. If it's not, might want to consider one that is captured by a special hammer pin.

A tip of the hat to your thoughtful wife! She's the real prize in this story, you know.

I have a Rock Island that looks just like your Ruger, except it doesn't have Ruger on it. It is the tactical model, and shoots just like it should.

Great choice, BTW. Enjoy your birthday present, and a belated happy birthday.
