    That gun was all over the place when it was fired. It looked like the left hand was there for show. Lots of bobbling going on there.

    He just needs some proper shooting instruction. And leave the skull mask at home. It helps if you can see the target clearly, as well as your peripheral.

    Recoil owns you man. Look into the combat focus shooting program by rob pincus. The NRA was issuing them to members a while back. Learn to control your handguns like he teaches in the video series and take a proper stance. feet shoulders width apart, square to the target, knees slightly bent and lean toward the target. That alone will work wonders with your recoil control and follow up.

    I ran across this rock island tactical and I will say its a good looking pistol. I might be interested in one of these. For the money, I dont think you could go wrong. It has many of the same features as the remington enhanced except it has the rail which I am not a fan of, but for 200 bucks less its not a bad pistol.

    That is a sweet looking firearm. I am thinking of getting another 1911 that I could shoot, all of the ones I have now are Govt. issued that are 70 to 100 years old. I shoot one of them but always get pinched by the hammer when I do. I don't want to modify the shooter because I want to keep it original.

    Yea, this one is pretty nice for the money. I might have to add number 15 to the stable. ;)

    Hey Limbkiller, I've never seen a trigger like that before, did it come from the factory with it?

    Well shucks. After a small amount of debate, I went ahead and got this rock island 2011 tactical. I have never had a rock island and out of all the 1911s I have, none have a rail, so, this one tempted me. Call me crazy, or whatever, I just call me "addicted". Sam said, why not get the spartan? I thought about that and said, well, maybe next time.......yea there will be more next times...:)
    I like that the throat came nicely polished and ready. I havent put it thru its paces yet, maybe later today or tomorrow. I did tear it down and lube it with silver bullet, of course.

    Finally got into town and picked up the Kimber I bought a few months back, my first 1911 in 30 years. We have 8 revolvers, 44 to 460, only a couple 22 semis but I want to get one or two more 1911's before the snow shuts down our road. This Pro Carry II has the crimson trace option and looks ok. Only problem I see so far is the slide stop and notch which doesn't operate properly; might be the owner too. Any idears folks? I got this Kimber from Buds, only place I could find this model available.

    Explain what you mean about the slide stop not operating properly. Sounds like operator malfunction. :D

    DD, Ya I figured it was my dumb ignorance with the Kimber more than anything. My neighbor mentioned that on the 1911's he handled in Vietnam, the slide stop lever went down easy when you pulled slide all the way back; no ammo in clip. On this Kimber, you got to really put some lbs on the lever to get it to go down, neighbor thought it wasn't right; what got me wondering? Normally, are they that tight to get depressed, do I need to have some work done by gunsmith in Fairbanks, or maybe just need to start shooting her some. I have my own T bench on back porch, if rain stops this afternoon, I'm shooting this new gun today.

    Who makes the best dvd or book covering disassembly, cleaning, maintenance, and care for this Pro Carry II?

    Should I put night sights on this gun, or what is the best sights available? Any options, parts, springs, ect I should be considering?

    I had this gun sent to my local gun shop from BUds when my local guy couldn't get me this model. I always buy local from small gun shop and this guy beats the pants off everybody else and has always treated me right. I only buy 4-5 guns off him every year but he gets my business. Buds had like 90 of them in stock. they told me they had bought the last of them available for now. Have heard enough Kimber problem stories, you'd think I'd had bought a Colt, but hard headed about some things. I wondered if Buds got a bunch of sent back & repaired guns, ha ha. That does happen.

    So DD, thanks for any info & help. What dvd should I order?

    You can watch videos on youtube for maintenance. As for the slide stop. Grasp the gun in your right hand and place your left hand on the slide and push against each other while pressing down on the slide latch with your right thumb. Should release like butter. It can be pretty hard to release the slide without any rearward pressure on the slide, but it can be done. I dont do it that way. I dont like to allow it to slam forward. I dont think its good on extractors. Some may disagree and thats ok.
