    My dad got the Ruger Commander SR1911 .45 in stainless when it first came out as his retirement gift to himself. I have to say that's one fine shootin' iron. The sights on the gun just seem to naturally drop back to your point of aim after every shot.

    I feel your pain. Here in California, we have what's known as the "Roster". Only guns on the roster can be bought by civilians. If you're in law enforcement you're exempt and can buy anything you want. This has made for a huge secondary market with crazy high prices. I did get lucky though and only paid $765 for my SR1911. It usually goes for more like $1000. The Sig P365 goes for $1200.

We got to shoot their 1911's a lot and I came to hate the Browning Hi-Power we were issued with.. this is back in the mid 1970's.
    Whoa! I like my 1911, but the Hi Power is nothing to sneeze at....just my humble opinion.
    Are we there yet?

    Just trying to do my bit. As someone once said, "Only accurate firearms are interesting", and the SR1911 series are all that, and more.

    They like to call it a gray market.

    Though there have been a few LEO's who've had to turn in all of their guns because they're now felon's.

    I got the Ruger LW Commander in 45 ACP when it first came out. Put on a set of CT lasergrips and bought it its own holster.


    It’s holster
