Picked up a couple of STI 1911's and 2011's off the table to try out at the suppressor shoot yesterday.

STI had a booth set up and was demoing their 1911 and 2011 style pistols. Damn they shot nice. I especially liked the 9mm premier model with the gray grips. It shot EXTREMELY nice!

I like the 9mm 1911s. Smooth shooting cheap ammo is a great combo.

While not necessarily in the STI class, I bought my wife an RIA 9mm 1911. Man oh man does that shoot nice. I like it so much, I want one for myself now.

Care to share where you got it and the price?

I agree. The heavy gun and the 9mm round shoot pretty dang soft!

2 years ago I picked up a batch of closeout RIA 9mm's for $299. I put them in the stores at $399 with the intent to buy one for myself and then put them in an ad. Then I got busy in Indiana and Illinois setting up new stores and they fell to the back of my mind. When I got unbusy I went to pick one up and we had sold every last one of them. Last year I bought all they had of a 10mm closeout for $349 and made my purchase the day they arrived at the store. I put the rest into a sale flier at $449 and I had stores give out 30 rainchecks that I couldn't honor. But I had mine so that was all that mattered.

My favorite shop in the town where I work. I disremember the price, but I'm pretty sure it was under $500. I think it was around $450. I thought you shot it at the last campout... maybe not. Hers could have a lighter trigger, it's around 5 pounds, but it's very crisp. Sights aren't anything special, just target black rear, and white dot front. 

 

The more I shoot it, the more I like it. Fast recovery shot to shot, because of the weight there is little recoil anyway... it just flat shoots. It's a completely different animal than a 1911 in .45. It's amazing how different it feels to shoot, what a difference it makes.

Nice. Sounds like an Armory buy is in the future! :laugh:

I was pretty impressed with the one I shot. Only thing I didn't like was the fact it was a single stack. Not what I'd want for CC or self defense.

If you can't solve it with 9+1 rounds of 9mm, you need an extra magazine. Not everything has to be a 75 round capacity wonderpistol.

Just have a double stack that holds 18 in each magazine. :segrin:

Ive shot some of their guns a couple years ago when a new indoor range opened. Very nice guns with a price to reflect.....too rich for my blood.

It's called a Browning Hi-Power, methinks.

Don't forget the pics.

You know you want one.

 

Skip the 9mm .45.

The Hi Power was John Moses' improvement on the 1911. 

It's too bad he did not get to finish it himself, but I think he did a pretty damn good job. 

 

I went through a period where I always wanted lots of ammo,

As my age went up, the number of rounds I carried went down. (Not too bright) 

 

Mob violence seems to be more common these days,

I'm a decent pistol shot, but I would not like 10 rounds to handle 4 or 5 guys or more who either want my stuff, or just want to beat the white privilege out of me. 

Our society is becoming more base, and if you have not noticed, a lot of these animals seem to travel in packs. 

More ammo is mo better, IMHO. 

Browning. Trust me.
