I love my 1911s but dont carry them (sr9c). cant wait to play with it Randy

    You'll like that Spartan. Pick up a couple of Metalform mags from Brownells and hit the range. :)

    I feel your pain.

    I'm blessed in having a good place to shoot out back of my house. Oh, well. You can get in plenty of dry fire practice and maybe even step the hammer a couple of times.
    You can also use the time to get familier with the Spartan if you have never owned a 1911. Plus you can give it a good cleaning and lube before use.
    I'm out of ideas so you're on your own. :)

    In 1911s I have a springfield black stainless combat 45 and a RIA xt22 had a randall arms 1911 years ago wish I had kept it. I will change grips to the ugly hogue fingergroove grips that I shoot better than any other grips. did lots of shooting of well worn 1911s in the 70s (military). I went to the range last week and only shot 22s. I took the xt22 a ruger mkII a single six and a dan wesson 22 pistol pac. in 45 I have the springfield a ruger p97 and a ruger blackhawk 45acp/45colt convertable. I carry a ruger sr9c and I have two dan wesson 357s so I have plenty to play with plus I shoot reg. skeet Randy

    Congrats, Randy, and good luck finding time to shoot. The STI Spartan is a excellent value, I'm sure you'll like it.

    You'll actually be upset after you get it and shoot it. It wil put your Springfields to shame.
