Hi folks,
Well i've got my 1911,its a used 70's series,already built(trigger,hammer&sear,slide,&safty)and want to get into pin shooting.
I've been practicing shooting five pins off a table,trying to get smoother and faster.and read several web sites,can anybody give me advice,or tips?Keep in mind,I've shot rifles for a while,but this is my first handgun.

Breathe, relax, aim, sight, squeeze (BRASS).

The two components of pistol-shooting are sight picture and trigger control.

Matt, we recently discussed this on my board & I think a nice intermediate bullet is the way to go.
All the USA magazine articles seem to lean toward the biggest fastest bullet you can load but IMHO the muzzle flip & recoil ain't worth it !
Try getting a 175 - 185gr LSWC going 750 - 850fps & see how your times go.
Works for me. :D
Drop by & chat with the gang.
