I shot IDPA for years with this Springfield, she is the most accurate 1911 that I've ever shot.
Moved to Abilene area 10 years ago and found no matches here. Went to local range to find out about matches, had a snot nosed punk at local shop/ indoor range tell me how inferior my weapon was to his kimber, IPSIC or some such was so much better than IDPA, His 9mm was better than 45, plastic guns are superb blah blah blah etc.... I've tried pretty much every major brand on for size except for STI. I like Springers best, with Ruger and colt a close second
I started just hunting with handguns for lack of any comps. Have become pretty good at taking deer and hogs with SBH's with homecast keith loads.
I purchased a bottom tier Ruger for a truck gun . Ruger's commander length.
This is the first 2 mags that I ran through it at 15 yards. Not bad for a $600 1911.
