Love SR1911 Target 9 mm

I have some Colts and I've owned at one time or another
Dan Wesson and Springfield Armory, even had a lone
Sig Sauer.

But I really love the Ruger Target 9mm.

At first I wasn't sure about the takedown system but
now I like it and am comfortable with it. In fact, I
think it's less hassle than the traditional 1911 design
with the bushing.

I'm sure I'm wrong and Colt owners or owners of other
1911s can give me dozens and dozens of reason why
I shouldn't love the Target 9mm. But I don't care.

It's slick, the trigger is most pleasing and it
seems just right to me out of the box. I wonder if
I'd like the Koenig even better. Probably never
try to find out.

And I shoot the Target better than all the other 1911s.

Full disclosure, I'm am at heart a double action revolver guy
so maybe I just don't have the experience to love the other
1911s although I've shot the Colt in particular off and on for

What is not to like. A 1911 all steel 9mm is a soft shooting pistol.

I have a backyard range and have shot a lot of pistols here of mine and friends. Everyone agrees that the Target in 9mm is one of the nicest and softest shooting 1911s or any pistol they have shot,

Just about to get mine off layaway. Am so looking forward to shooting it. I got it so I could shoot it in IDPA. I am hoping it will be a good competitor. I expect it to be.

And there is no reason to care about the naysayers. You could stay busy for a little while counting the number of 1911 manufacturers. Many are good guns. The Ruger is one of them. Enjoy it.
The modern production 1911 - high visibility sights, beavertail grip safety, aluminum trigger, good trigger pull, enhanced slide/ frame fit, accurized barrel/bushing fit. If itís not a Kimber, itís a copy.
