at the range Saturday I was next to a guy I've seen there many times. He's got a decent collection of guns even though most of his handguns are Glock. He was telling me about 2 of them Saturday, saying "this is gen 1, this is gen 3" or whatever and "model blah blah blah". I asked if he ever tried a 1911. "No, never had a chance". I handed him my Rock Island 1911 with a full mag of 230 plated round nose. He fired twice, stopped to look at it, fired 2 more, smiled then finished it off rapid fire. His words, not mine. "Holy ****! Why do people bad mouth these? It works great and is easy to shoot. Tell me more about it. Where do I get one. I want one"
