Ordered a New Gun

Seems like I haven't bought a gun in years. I reckon I was looking for something to pop up that caught my eye.....and it just did. I just ordered the Springfield Armory Ronin with the 4.25" barrel in 45ACP. After spending days and days looking at Commander size 1911's I discovered two things.
First of all, there don't seem to be many guns of any kind available. Damndest thing I ever saw.
Secondly, it takes quite a bit of study when deciding on which gun to buy. There really are several good choices in the Commander size 1911. Prices are being held at or even above MSRP. I felt good to get this for $50 under MSRP. Ammo is scarce as well. But, if all goes well, I should have the gun the end of this week, and I happen to have a few rounds of ammo at the house. Two friends of mine have recently bought new pistols and want to come to the house to shoot. I guess their purchases got my interest up. It has been fun and even tiring the last several days looking at so many guns.

Congratulations Ridge!
You can't hardly go wrong with a Springer. I've got 4, with nary a lick of trouble out've any of'em.
Plus, they just feel and point right.

That's as good of a recommendation as anyone could want. The thought of four SA's puts a smile on my face. This is my second, and the first one is a great gun. I'm feeling like a kid at Christmas.

Congrats. That is a fine looking 1911 and should carry nicely and serve well. Springfield has made excellent 1911's for many years and 45 ACP will do the job.

Congrats, Ridge. Can never go wrong with an SA 1911. I'll put my old Mil-spec up against any 1911 made.

Congratulations! Nice choice!! The Commander size is my favorite. My Kimber was the sweetest shooting gun I've ever had, just couldn't strip it with my arthritic hands to clean it.

Sounds like you're happy?.....

Some people are turned off because they're not U.S. made. Karlovac, Croatia.
