Idaho is getting the spillover from the leftist parasites who have infested WA and OR and drove up the cost of living so much that many can't afford to live here any longer. Eventually they'll be moving to Montana and Wyoming as well. When you consider California has 40 million people and Wyoming only has 1/2 million, you can see that it would only a very small percentage of CA leftists to plant their asses in Wyoming and turn the state blue.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
