Went ahead and ordered a new RIA Tactical today. 5", .45, no rail. Wanted the SS or nickel, whichever it is, but no one could locate one. Not expecting a top end product, but useable none the less. Most people seem to find them adequate, a few have had complaints of course. I have a few days before it gets here, so now I gotta get its room ready. I really dont care for re-arranging the living quarters of the other occupants, but im sure theyll welcome the new face just the same.
