Friend shoots 1911 for first time...and STI does him right

My friend is an experienced long gun shooter for decades yet oddly never shot a 1911. Didn't know what one was until today. I know, I know.

Took him to the range with my STI Spartan that is totally stock other than some springs swapped out and the sear leaf adjusted.

The other 1911 was my beloved TRP Operator with bull barrel and 3.5 pound trigger job. It is my most accurate 1911 (uh, I only own two), follow up shots are deadly quick and recoil is zilch. The trigger is noticeably better than the Spartan's right now.

After the usual safety talk and dry firing both a few times it was time to go.

The STI in his hands was more accurate in single shot and in 3-group burst. Over and over and over. I didn't tell him which 1911 was $600 and which was many times more until the very end. Guess it just fit his hands better.
