    The more I read about em' the more I like em'. I'm really thinking when the time comes to get into a full size that the SR1911 will be the one I'll want to get. Just hope Ruger gets their production up to snuff by then, I hate waiting for things.
    I still wonder if they'll come out with the gun in other calibers, maybe a Commander size gun. Guess we'll have to wait and see on that. Anyway, Congrats, nice looking gun ya' got there.

    I've never owned a 1911, would this be a good choice for someone's first? Congrats!

    To the OP. This being your first 1911 I believe you have made an excellent choice based on my example and reviews I have read by others. Welcome to the 1911 World.

    Nice Joel good luck with it, I picked mine up a few weeks ago, After almost a whole year of searching the world over for one. Now that the nice weather finally hit here in the NE I will take it out & put it through it's paces. According to all of the Hype & reviews that I have saw & read,? they say it's the most fun that you can have with your clothes on,? HA HA We shall see enjoy your new toy also
