    I've owned many handguns over the years and have always just pretty much been "combat accurate". I rarely get the chance to shoot for practice, so there's really no shooting groups for me.....until 2 days ago.

    I love Ruger products and own several. I have never owned a 1911 and usually avoid them because of the weight for carrying and the grip size not agreeing with my short, chubby hands. I was reading about the SR 1911 LW CMD model and thought I would take a look at one. I loved the feel and the price, especially since I got the LEO price for being a paramedic. So I bought it of course and took it to the indoor range at the store. I put up one of the targets that has all the areas marked off to show you why you're hitting where you are, be it a grip issue or anticipation of recoil, etc, etc. Well to make a long story short, at 7 yards I hit none of those areas and in fact cut the bullseye out with my first 2 mags. The rest of the range adventure went very well too even quite a bit further out.

    Bottom line, I love my new Ruger SR 1911 LW CMD ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1447446631.508375.jpg

    Welcome from Texas.
    Lots of 1911 fans on this forum. I've never owned a 'real' 1911 but I have shot a few.
    A 1911 is high on my very long someday I'll get one list. I love the way they are easy to shoot and hit with.
