Went to the local gun store today to just look around.. Saw a Springfield 1911A1 in the rental case in 9mm so decided to try it out.. Here's the target after 10 rounds.. Im definitely thinking about getting one..
I'd like to get some of those targets too...:unsure:...the holes are never that close to the bullseye in the ones I'm usin' now. :sad:...musta' got some out of a bad run.

Im just gonna call it dumb luck honestly.. Have been havin a hard time finding a pistol that i can shoot well but i think the 1911 might just be the ticket.. Best group ive had with a pistol in a while but im just now gettin back into shooting some.

Thanks for the help.. Will definitely have to look at the 5 inch once i get the money.. Have heard good and bad about these but I also know most 1911's can be finicky at best.. Just don't wanna drop the 600-800 bucks for a springfield or sig when its gonna be a 90% range gun anyway with occasional carry duty.

Why don't you ask if the gun shop would sell you that rental? If they had it as a rental for some time they might welcome selling it at a good price and replacing it with something new. It never hurts to ask…

Might have to do that but then again it kinda concerns me buyin a rental because I dont know how many rounds have been through it so no idea on how long current parts will hold up.. Still might be something to look into. Thanks for the idea.

If they took that gun out of rental and put it on the used gun shelf for sale and you walked in and saw it you wouldn't even worry about how many rounds were through it. You would check it out if it felt good and tight and had a good price you would buy it.

Unlike what some people believe a good quality handgun does not just wear out quickly or even slowly over time. Just the fact that the gun felt good to you when you shot it and grouped as tight as it does I don't believe it's worn out. I also don't believe that you will shoot it enough to wear it out in your time shooting it.

If you can get it for a good price that fits your budget and you want it do not be afraid of it. Springfield is a good company that makes a good gun and even if something does break I'm sure they have parts you can buy to fix it.

Don't let a worry about something that is highly unlikely cheat you out of enjoying a very nice gun.

Don't get 9sillimeter. God and his prophet John Mose created the 1911 in 45. Everything else is an abomination. They created the Hi-Power for the 9.

I know getting the 9mm is not true to form for the 1911 but I wanna be able to shoot the thing alot without burning a hole in my wallet and the recoil is easier for me to manage 😃

I'd like to have a 1911 in 9mm personally. I have more pistols in 9mm than any other, so why not?

So if that's the case, the 32 ACP caliber invented by Browning is an abomination?

I am not going to get pulled into a caliber war BUT.... There is nothing wrong with a 1911 in 9 mm. In many ways it is a better caliber for a lot of different people for a number of reasons. I have 1911 pistols in 6 different calibers and I like every one of them. I tend to shoot the 45s more often because I have more 1911s (7) in that caliber but I also enjoy shooting my nines. I have 1911s in 9mm from Kimber, Springfield, and Rock Island but I think my favorite of those three is my Kimber.
