I have been ogling the new Double stack version from Rock Island. I was really leaning towards the P220 but then i saw the Rock Island 1911... I really want both...
Well I finally did buy a Rock Island ultra A2.... It is pretty sweat 1911. The grip frame is big as was to be expected. But this is not and issue for me as I have pretty large hands... I will post pics later...

If you are going to use it at the range or in competition to put a ton of rounds through, I would definately
not use the ammo that is super hot a majority of the time. IMO, you are just tempting fate.
The ideal situation would be to reload some reasonable pressure range ammo, which would also be more enjoyable to shoot,
and then use the bear/bad guy medicine to the extent to be able to shoot it well, on target, and make sure the sidearm function with it.
This would actually go for any magnum or stout loaded sidearm caliber out there.
There are a lot of of handguns out there that are rated to handle a steady diet of +P or magnum loads,
but that doesn't mean it is the best thing to feed it on all the time. You are simply accelerating wear.
My daughter's .357 Magnum Ruger revolver could probably handle a steady diet of .357,
but it will stay tight longer and she will shoot it more using .38 specials for training/plinking.
I am interested in RIA and always read the threads on them here.
It seems to me that this Filipino gunmaker has figured out how to forge and build a reasonably priced
reliable and sturdy line of handguns, and their service seems good in the rare instance a problem does develop.
Even though I don't have personal experience, if I wanted a 10mm at a lower price point, I would buy with confidence.
Anyone have RIA's with high round counts?

Any gun will last longer with a steady diet of light ammo as compared to a steady diet of hot stuff. That is just how machines work. That being said, if the round is pretty much fully encased in the chamber and the barrel has an integral feed ramp, the gun is built as strong as any 10mm is and will handle the hot stuff as much and as long as any 10mm will. Due to the cost of the hot stuff, most folks don't have to worry about wearing their gun out with it. Most use is sparingly for hunting or maybe the occasional dazzling exposition at the range. Of course hand loaders probably use it more often, but I would imagine due to the cost of the fancy killer bullets, even they do not use it in great numbers all of the time.
