I've owned a RIA match .45 1911 and liked it quite a lot. I used mine as a fishing, hiking, and target gun. As said earlier, if you like it enough you'll find a niche for it. Mine eventually got traded for a .45colt Blackhawk, being both a Ruger fan and a reloader I felt the colt was a more versatile choice. keep in mind this is just my opinion.
may God eternally bless the American Rifleman--- as long as one stands, resolute, liberty shall not perish.
