I just purchased a Tisas stingray in 9mm
And have a Guardian by Dan Wesson . If nobody’s told you yet ,1911’s multiply quickly so make room in your safe .
Yeah, when I was looking, I read like 5 thousand reviews, on all brands and price range. I’ve still got my eye on a couple, but first I have to get comfortable and good with this one……
With the "Army" (both versions) and the "Tanker" I found I would get a bruise (not hammer bite, just a bruise) from the point of the grip safety hitting the webbing between thumb and finger. It never broke the skin or even hurt but was simply there.Thanks for all of the replies. I’m still waiting on my ammo to arrive at the house, so I just play with it, I’ve field stripped it twice, just because. I’ve got it lubed up now, I’ll wipe it down when I’m loading the mags.
Now, as all of you have said, you gotta have more than one, right? But I didn’t buy a nicer one, I bought the now discontinued 1911 A1, plastic grips, tiny fixed sights, this is the type gun I shot decades ago in Colorado, when I was first introduced to real firearm handling. A good clone of the original that J M Browning gave us.
You'll need at least 7 mags for a single pistol. I recommend at least 10-12 that way you can add another 1911 to the fray and you'll always have enough mags since you'll be continously adding 1-2 mags with each pistol.I was able to shoot the Tisas yesterday, and this being my first 1911, I suck. Started at about 7 yards, paced off, first shot was low a little left, adjusted my sight picture, and landed the next 6 proper hight, a little left still. Had a FTF on the last round of the first mag, was able to lock the slide back, and eject the magazine. That let the cartridge start to load, so I slapped it into battery, and shot that round. Shot the next mag without a hiccup. Moved back to 12 yards paced off again, and I suck. I only brought over 2 magazines, so only shot 14 rounds, but goodness gracious, do I even need ammo and magazines.
