    Was flipping through my new issue of handguns magazine when I noticed a very ad for shooting times magazine with a very interesting cover pic of the June 2011 issue. A little internet research led me to this web page.

    The Ruger 1911 Photo Leaked!!! | The Firearm Blog

    Thank god the photo was released. Otherwise I would have no idea what their 1911 was going to look like.

    Cookie cutter guns. So many choices, so little difference. :peace:

    A gun that appeals to neither the glock nor 1911 crowd. It would fail pretty quickly... If it were real.

    Exactly why I've only owned one Glock, and no longer do. They just don't point accurately for me as well as having no positive safety.

    8 US Presidents have been NRA members. They are: Ulysses S. Grant,
    Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
    John F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush.

    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!!

    The "Feedback Score" is low by 4, not everyone posts it I guess.

    Eh, I don't like Ruger firearms, never have, so a Ruger 1911 does not interest me. That said, who would have thunk that S&W, SIG & even Remington would move into the 1911 & AR15 market. Pretty soon every gun maker will be trying to take a piece of the 1911 pie.

    I will own one!
    I just read Dick Metcalf's review of the Ruger 1911 in Shooting times. His review is nothing more or less than I would have expected from Ruger. I've had favorable results with Ruger firearms all of my life, both handguns and rifles. I was very interested in the Gunsite Scout, but I can't afford two brand new guns at this time. This Ruger 1911 will be a nice companion to my Colt and Dan Wesson. It will not be carried as much as the DW, but will probably be used more than the Colt. (an older Colt deserves to be some what of a safe queen, don't ya think?)
    I especially like the lack of the front cocking serrations on the slide.
