As some of you know I'm a pretty diehard revolver guy, but after some years of curiosity (and fun with various friend's guns) I picked up my first 1911 today in a trade with a Forum member (thanks to OregonCC10 for such a nice smooth transaction). Being an antiquarian, I really wanted a teens or 20s era military surplus model, but the damn things are crazy expensive (a surprise to me, but I'm guessing y'all knew that already . So based on some internet homework, I gathered that Colt's basic government style models were solid and a good platform to build from if I wanted to go fancy custom down the road. So, now I have a Colt m1991A1 in stainless with nice wood grips, but everything else pretty well stock. . . Originally, I had my heart set on a series 70, but this one "felt right in my hands" and seemed like a fair trade. Besides, I get the sense I wouldn't have a hard time trading or selling it if I decide I don't like it. I am an experienced gun owner and have lots and lots of rounds downrange with big magnum revolvers, snubbys, and small semi-auto carry guns. But, heretofore I have only fired 50-100 rounds from full size 1911 platform guns (Sigs and Kimbers that my various friends own -- all pretty tricked out guns). Other than shooting it a bunch (which I intend to do), do the members of the Church of John Browning, and the Cult of the 1911 hereabouts have any suggestions or tips?
