Joined the 10mm club (SR1911)

Was going to order one online, but decided to give a few stores the chance to make me spend my $$ locally. Guess it pays to ask as I got this one for $690 plus tax.

I don't even a bit mean to "stir the pot," but I'd truly like to know:

What would be the reason to choose a 1911 in 10 mm, vs .45 acp?

My son and I were out shooting 1 day, and he started laughing as he was shooting my Kimber CDP PRO 45ACP. I asked him what was so funny?
Dad, he says, the bullet is so slow that I can see it!

The thing that got me into 10mm was when I was shooting steel plates, the plates would rock so dramatically.

I have a Sr. 45 and the Sr 10mm you will have so much fun with the 10mm in a 1911 you will giggle Every time you shoot it. They they really are that fun and shoot so flat compared to the 45.

Ya beat me on price. Got mine last week & was $707+tax. Haven't had it to the range yet. Out of the box, very happy with the trigger. Also very pleased with the slide to frame fit.

Thanks guys,

Can't wait to work up some reloads. Factory ammo really is pathetic. Bullets mic'd at .399" - .3995". Groups at 10 yards aren't much to look at.

I have had mine for over a year and still like it a lot. I did put some grips on it I bought originally for my Ruger CMD back in 2013. Shopruger called them Delta grips and I told myself if Ruger ever made a SR1911 in 10mm I would have to put them on it. Here it is with another 10mm Ruger. The Ruger/Lipsey Blackhawk in 10mm/40S&W.

Congrats on a nice pistol. I got my first 10 mm about a year ago, now have two. If I see the Ruger at the gun show today, I may have another.

Yesterday I received my Underwood order.
I'm hoping that I can get out today after work and test their 200 gr & 220 gr hardcast in my G29. Thats my primary backwoods gun. No Grizzlies in my area, but plenty of Black bear and Mt. Cats.
