So, I’ve been shooting for about +/-35 years now. My first gun longarm being a Mossberg 500, and my first handgun being a S&W M65. Right now, I’m back to a 1911 ( a Remington R1) and a Ruger GP100 Match Champion.
Other than that, am looking forward to using this forum to get some good advice for loads for my .357.
Early on, before covid ,we set out to be a community where people knew each other, admittedly it can be a bit of a put off, but we thought it would be more acceptable than asking people to put their elbows on the table
Curious about your screen name, anything worth noting?
A firend of my uncle’s got a compact Coonan when they originally came out. The first round he put through it blew the front site off.
Am using a Remington R1 atm. No complaints. Basically, everything you’d want out of a 1911. The one thing I did change up on it were the grips. The factory wood grips weren’t bad, but the exposed frontstarp always felt a little too slick for my tastes, so I replaced the grips with a set of wraparound Pachmayrs. Been carrying it ever since.
LOL, I sent one back as the thumb safety would fall out when the pistol was turned sideways,
that metal on the side catch began to peel back too, they said it was normal, they also said they tested it and it didn’t stove pipe for them, but it sure did for me and anyone I let shoot it
Too bad as I really loved it, nice heft, great round, mone was one of the first 100 when they came back into business the second time, so I too ordered a compact with a custom serial number to match it, never fired it, traded both off
perhaps I’ve seen it and just don’t recollect the name
Have those on mine, they definitely add to the grip
