    Springfield GI 1911 A1 5"

    Well I did it after some common scense hit me... The absolute best groups I have ever fired came from a 1911 A1 of another brand. The SA GI replaces a Taurus Tracker 455SH4" that for the life of me can't figure out why it had such a hard trigger pull... felt like 14 pounds. And fooling with those steller clips was a joke for reloading. It was a nice light firearm with its Titainium 23 oz weight, but if its just purdy and can't be handled well then its just a paper weight.

    After watching Todd Jarrett IPSC Pistol Grip Lesson video on line I realized what I was missing AGAIN and that was a quality firearm such as the Springfield Armory GI 1911 A1.

    My new SA GI 1911 A1 is sitting atop of a 16" round stone lazy susan that made at work. I figured it gives it a nice back drop and reflection

    Guys after I posted the other day, I had a very mild stroke, and well my 4th holiday was spent in the hospital. So now I am biting at the bit to go out and do some shooting, the doctor said to relax, and shooting relaxes me.
