First Round Butt 1911

I have a birthday coming up and my wife was fishing for what I wanted. I rolled it over in my head for an afternoon, knowing full well it would be a new gun, but I just wasnít sure which one. I stopped by the local shop the next day and seen what I wanted. I didnt have a round butt 1911 and after holding it in my hand it just felt right and knew that it was going home with me. Havenít shot it yet but figured this weekend Mini Me and I will have to take it and the KHX with the newly added Leupold out for some break in time

Did Someone Say "Aegis Elite"?

Happy Birthday there, Andy!

It appears we both have stellar taste in fine firearms, as I also received a new Aegis Elite Custom for Father's Day last month.

You're really gonna love that pistol, especially after a few quick double-taps on steel with that MRDS aboard. I was amazed at how fast I can now clear my rack of steel silhouettes with a full 10-round WC magazine in the pistol.

Mine is in nine, and being all steel with that nice round butt, it's like shooting a Rimfire to me. Lovin' it!
