Had a nice range day today: 60 degrees and it's going to be low teens tomorrow (of course). Shot my new 638, a Ruger super Blackhawk, my glock 23 and a friend I brought along had his Rock Island Armory 1911. I've been toying with the idea of getting one of these for awhile so I was really excited to shoot it. With the 230gr. ball ammo he had, it functioned perfectly. The sights were dead on and this is the first 1911 I've ever shot. It was a great experience, and really solidified that gun on my "buy next" list. I loved the ergonomics and the sound it made when I racked the slide. Steel on steel. What a cool sound. Trigger wasn't half bad either. Today was one of those days when I was just on fire it seemed. Felt like I couldn't hardly miss. Gotta love those days; memories of them get me through the days when I can't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside.
