So today I was checking out all my local stores looking for a .22 rifle for plinking and squirrel hunting when I came across a very slightly used Springfield 1911-A1 GI. I've looked at the RIA 1911s several times before but hadn't talked myself into one. Well this one seemed really nice and it was a little cheaper than the rocks sale for new. I just had to have it. Now I must resist the urge to drop a bunch of money into it.
