Congratulations! That was my first 1911 & love it. You may find that during break-in, it prefers a little extra oil on the rails. Kinda messy so lube normally, but when you get to the range, lock the slide back, put a couple of drops of oil on the rail at the back of the slide & work the slide a few times to spread it. Wipe it down good before putting it back in you case/range bag.

I especially liked the crimson trace for dry firing at home & practicing 'point & shoot'. Without using the iron sights, point at an object across the room & then trigger the laser. Helped me improve accuracy without ammo cost. Actually, didn't use the laser much at the range because I also needed a lot of improvement with iron sights.
