    1911 usage!

    So it was my second time at the range, and my first time shooting a 1911. It was a 1911 Remington Mil Spec that my friend just got.

    Anyway, his magazines only held 7 so I worked with it. I'm still trying to figure out what works best for me regarding stance and hand placement, but this was literally the first 7 rounds that I've ever shot in .45 acp, let alone a 1911.

    This was at 35 ft. 4 in the orange

    I don't know why I had a straggler at the bottom, maybe it was pulled?

    Nice shootin'. Gotta love the crisp single action of a 1911, eh? I always shoot a lot more accurate with one too. Don't own one yet though. Yet.

    Yeah. His Remington was sooo smooth. Only problem was when I held it high I got some lash on my hand
    I'm looking into a trojan soon!

    Thanks for the compliment!

    The Mil-Spec is made by Springfield, and if you can shoot 2" groups at 10 yards (plus), why would you need more than 7 rounds?

    I think he means a USGI Remington Rand.

    You'll really like the STI last one I shot I could group under 4" at 35 yards without any trouble.
