I have had a PT 709 Slim for almost a year now and it has been flawless through some 800 rounds. Well today on the way home from work I ordered my PT1911 .45ACP. I get it Friday! Oh yea! Can't wait. Already bought 300 rounds for it last week. That should get me through a few hours at the range.

Congratulations on your incoming PT1911!

They are a whole different firearm than the Slim series of pistols. You will be amazed at the smooth, single action trigger pull, and the spot-on accuracy. :)

Welcome to the club.

You might need more than 300 rounds for your first time out! You want to break her in you know! :D

Extra magazines are a necessity; no sense in having to stop the fun to reload. I personally can vouch that McCormick makes good ones; others on the forum could suggest others.

I hate reloading at the range, so I have 20 mags. :)

I usually load them up the night before while watching a movie.

The Chip McCormack's are good and reasonably priced. Bud's, CTD, or CDNN usually have about the best prices, just depends on what is in stock. Also look for the UpLULA. Works much better than the 'loader' that comes from the factory, and will fit .380 to .45, if you have other calibers to load. Congrats and keep us posted.
