Well, kids, the 1911 RIA 9mm was brilliant this afternoon! I'm mystified. We had five kinds of ammo brands, in three different grains, and six different shooters. No malfunctions, no matter what we did. We went thought close to 500 rounds. Geezer even mixed up the five ammos and grains in a couple of magazines. Billy shot that thing with two fingers, upside down, to eliminate the limp-wrist theory. Another forum member Alan (?) shot it one-handed with a really odd grip and it went fine. I'm just shaking my head over all this! We could not get that thing to screw up. The only thing different was that Billy hosed that thing down with plenty of lube!! LoL. It was an awesome, and messy, day! I got to shoot some guns the guys had, (almost broke one) and got to shoot yet another rifle...with a scope....my first one of those. Button Pusher will have to remind me what that thing was, but I liked it! I don't think I hit any steel, but I get why you guys like the rifles and distances! We were out 100 yards, a long way for me to get my head around. It was great! So I'll take the gun to the range next week a couple of times, then Saturday I hope to compete in my second match with it! Give my "precious" a chance to redeem itself.....lol. Thanks to all the guys who helped me test the gun, and thanks for being ok with the day being mostly about my gun and its issues! Y'all were great. Thanks to my host and hostess for lunch and dessert, and for another wonderful day at the happiest place on earth!
