    Sold off my last Glock today, 6 in the last year after making the decision to switch over to the 1911 platform. Had no intentions of picking up another 1911 at this time, as I've gotten back into my old long range shooting hobby. I'll admit I've got several 1911's on my wish list, Remington R1, Desert Eagle, and a Kimber TLE II. Any ways, I stop into my small local gun shop to eye ball a .338 Laupua, as I'm looking at the rifles I look down and view 5/6 1911's through the case. This pass year I've read alot of positive threads about these Armscor 1911's, I see this RIA compact in the case. I should have stayed focused, but no, I had my friend pull it out. The weight and balance felt nice for a all steel gun. The sights are small,a small amount of creep in the trigger,I'm thinking at the time, a great 7 yard gun. I'll admit it feels better in the hand than my Ultra Carry II, and it gives me the same great feeling in the hand as my Colt Commander 1991. Now this one was used, but I could not tell in any way that it had been fired, and yea I took it home. I gave 400.00 OTD door for it, some of you may chime in and say it was to high, maybe, but I have to support my local shop and don't mind paying a little more to the local shop. I should get some range time next weekend when the deer gun season goes out. I'm hoping it shoot's as well as other's have indicated here with RIA's. Don't blast me with picture's. I don't have a clue as how to post them here, or I'd share. Will post some range information as soon as I get it out.

    I love 1911s, but I usually carry a Glock 19 just because it's good for it.

    Why would you want to have a Desert Eagle, Remington, Kimber and Rock Island? I would rather have one Springer Custom or built Colt than all of that...

    agreed. i love 1911's but have a g30sf with a lite on my nitestand. in the middle of the nite, awoke by a noise, there's about a 2 second window in which i don't know who, where, or what world i'm in. rather just pull a trigger.

    I agree with quality over quantity, but those are still all good 1911s and some don't like spending big bucks on one gun.

    i agree with quality over quantity, i just can't afford quality. good thing about a 1911 is you can spend a minimal amount (trigger job, sites, throat and polish) and have a very nice, dependable firearm. and a beautiful one at that. :cool:

    Why, cause I can. Over the last 30+years I've been fortunate to own many firearms, S&W, Colt, Kimber, Glock, Springfield, Ruger, and many I don't recall at the moment. More than most, and not as many as other's. Handguns to me fall far behind my other hobbies, a custom 1911 is something that don't fit my needs or desires at the moment. If I get than itch for a custom, I'll order one, but not at this time, I'd spend that $$ on a new optics for a LR outfit, or something else.

    The Glock 19 is a great handgun, but I find my S&W J frame does a great job for me. Had a G23, loved it, but it was just a tool. There are many tools in my toolbox, some not for other's, some just fine for me. Ya just gotta love this country.

    Had a 30sf, and CC'd it for over a year, another great gun. I certainly hope you never are put it that situation in the middle of the night, Woodrow. I practice stress training with my weapons CC/HD weapons as much as possible, I can't just "pull the trigger".

    I don't have a issue not spending the $$ on a custom, it's down the list with my other hobbies.

    Understood, and I would given the facts to your situation, and was by in no means critical to your post. I was thinking of my situation, and my reaction plan to that situation. My apology to you, nothing negative was implied.

    Both of mind have been out for about 10 years, just me and the "old crone". But if one was to wake me up in the middle of the night is why I've practiced several mechanical things I have/trained myself to do in those several seconds.

    since this post is partially about a glock, for some real fireworks, you should post it in the glock forum. :rofl::rofl:

    It would probably get locked in a matter of minutes.
