Since it's been more than a year since the lat post here, let me be the one to break the silence. With my new-found passion for overlanding in remote places, I felt like I needed to be able to protect myself. I was able to find (and it wasn't easy!) a Rock Island Armory 1911A1. I'm thinking of it as a beginner's pistol, because that's what I am. A beginner. It's a new hobby and universe of knowledge to start absorbing but I'm having fun so far.
Yeah no kidding on the limited choice. I did not know how CRAZY regulated all things firearms are here in California.
I like the 1911 for the way it looks, and for its heritage. This could become an expensive hobby.... "I want a nicer one" very quickly becomes synonymous with "bye bye bank account" LOL!!!
Also, given the general market situation for firearms, this .45 1911 was just about the only thin I could get at all. So, I thought that *A* pistol is much, much, much better than no pistol.
Now to find some ammo......
Interesting little bull pup. Want to hear what you think after you get to run it.Picked up an FN PS90. Quirky little carbine that shoots the 5.7x28. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but love my 5.7 pistol. Also like the higher capacity of the mags.
