I went to the range Sunday morning to try out their PT1911. Gun was in decent condition to my eyes, so I brought out my box of 45 to try it out. Needless to say, I left the range with an empty box of ammo, and was sorely tempted to pull out the second box. The only reason I didn't is I knew I would need something to break in my new 1911
So I ended up deciding to get the Rock Island. I was gonna save my pennies and/or sell a revolver that i bought as a collection piece to finance it. I had seen the GI model at Bud's, and figured that was the way I was going to go.
Then I got on Facebook. One of the local gun exchange groups had a RIA Tactical with 20 rds fired for $400. My LGS has offered me $300 for the revolver, so I made a deal for $300 and some 9mm ammo I had stowed away. Deal goes down later today.
