    Hi all,
    This is my first 1911, it's a Springfield Loaded Parkerized. I have been shooting a Beretta 92fs witch I do like a lot, but I needed more so the 1911 was it. I also have a Ciener .22lr conversion for the 92fs witch works great.

    Think I will learn a lot here, I have been reading all I can on the 1911s.
    Some of you guys are just full of so much info. Hope to get out to the
    range some time this week should be fun.
    Richard

    Ok here's some pics.

    hEY rICHARD, wELCOME TO THE FORUM. Stupid caploks. If you have been lurking on this forum you already know that you MUST post PICS! And if I may reiterate, POST PICS!! Seriously, I just recently bought a Springfield Operator TRP which I am in love with. I am also thinking of buying a Springer loaded for my daughter who is in the US Navy. I have some Faux Ivory Navy grips that would look special. Please give us a range report and your impressions of your new weapon. We all love pics if I havnt mentioned it yet.

    hey welcome. diggin the springfield. i almost bought a springfield mil-spec 1911 but went with the ria instead for price reasons. cool pistol though. range report would be cool too. a friend of mine from work has a '94 92FS and he says it's easy to get your finger caught by the slide. i love 1911s. what size barrel does yours have?

    Welcome to TFF.

    That's a nice loaded, I love mine.
    Buy you some Wilson Combat magazines and she'll not let you down.

    Welcome to TFF. As you probably noticed most of us are fans of everything sharp, shiney, or making a loud boom :D:D:D
