I've had this pistol for awhile ,hadn't even had a chance to shoot it as yet ..and I need to find a decent pancake holster ..

Seems like I always end up with a RIA ..I've had several other brands...Colt ,Kimber ,Taurus (Great Gun) ,and several others .. but I end up with a faithful RIA ..

They are rugged and dependable ..and I'm sure by the fit and finish on this one ..I will have no suprises

Thumbs up to that one, I love my RIA that I basically customized into my own 'Tactical' version. It's greedy too, .45's just keep disappearing faster and faster when I hit the range.

Rugged Holsters makes a very nice pancake holster that has seen a lot of use by the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan for their M9s. It can be used as a pancake or shoulder holster, which is how most troops use it.

Every time I go to a gun show those RIA 1911's call my name. I most resist and stick to the plan!

If I were to buy one Id special order the dies from Lee to handload them. There was a local guy here that offered the Lee 22TCM dies a year ago for like $80, dunno if he still does it.

I looked at two Rock Island 1911 45s yesterday, one full size ($525.00) and one 3.5" barrel for $555.00. Managed to walk out without buying either.

It helped that if caught with a firearm in a company vehicle or on company property, I would get fired.

Congrats! I have a couple rock tacticals one is 45 ACP the other 10MM.
To me the tactical is the common sense way to go ,much like buying a taurus Pt1911 over springfield Mil-spec!
you just get so much more for the money.
Now my tactical 1 in 45 wasn't the best out of the box 1911 that I have gotten, it might have been near the bottom of the list, a little bit of work and smoothing though and its a good shooter now.
The 10 MM tactical II was simply one sweet, smooth, great shooter right out of the box.
Hard to compare one gun to a completely different one gun but if these are an example then Rock has made great strides in quality and workmanship.
the prices are very hard to beat for sure!
the 45 tact 1 was under 500 bucks, the tact II was about 650 out the door.
so how does one go this long without shooting a 1911?

Yep! and then whe Lee finally gets them in stock you can try to find brass and then once you find thta you can try to find you some projectiles!
I am sure Armscor is hit by the same crunch as most in producing ammo due to components!
the problem that i see with this caliber is getting local gunshops and such to stock the ammo.
I can see walking into Wally world and asking for it!--GriiiN.
kind of like 45 GAP, 41 magnum, 38 Super, etc!
and of course being a bottle neck its not exactly simple to reload them cases and you have shorter case life as well.
it is an intersting caliber though.

I love my 22tcm of course it gets shot as a 9mm a lot more than 22tcm but the looks at the range when you shoot 22tcm is priceless (muzzle flash and noise). Randy
