    I SUCK I KNOW! I only had time to shoot a box (50 rounds) and it was the first 50.. (not using that as an excuse I think I've been to the range less than 10 times since I started shooting..

    Not a single mishap, jam, failure.. nothing.

    ooooo and I picked up that holster from Backwoods Leather in portsmouth!

    Hey! Be nice. He was just a little happy. No big deal that he used initials.

    Shut up. At least I'm not calling him names. You, however, deserve more than a few names. Now leave me alone before I violate some forum rules.

    You're probably too stupid to check back to the thread to see what the initials stand for.

    (The OPer counter-commented against himself. I was just taking that a step further and playing a split personality, the personalities arguing with each other.)

    You hit the target, done well.
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Oh, that could be fun! A four-way argument between two people!


    Thanks for clearing up which manufacturer and model.

    Citizen(s) must have to much time on his/their hands...

    As to the OP I kinda felt the same way when I let one of my 1911's(kimber) go for a USP compact, I have been primarily shooting 1911's for a little while and it took a few range sessions for me to adjust to the trigger of the USP. Once you get a few range sessions done with I think you will see the groups tighten up. It is all in what you are use to as well as some get range jitters when out with a new piece for the first time.


    All In all a nice piece I think the TRP is hard to beat for the money.

    You have the first 50 out of the way. Another 950 rounds and you can clean it!

    Yep. The EMP 40 also needs a couple tools as well to break her down other wise you'll be fighting hard to get reassembled. Not like the old 1911's I'm accustomed to from the Army days.

    As far as needing a tool to break it down, just order a GI guide rod and springcap. I did on my Springfield Loaded 1911 and never had an issue. I hate full length guide rods.

    I won't comment on your accuracy, (you and Citizen can carry on that conversation with yourselves. :-) but whenever I shoot really well I want to go back to the range and do it again. Whenever I have a crappy (accuracy) day at the range, I want to go back and try again. (A crappy day at the range beats a good day at work)

    So go back, try again, if your accuracy improves, repeat, if your accuracy doesn't, ask for tips from better shooters, and REPEAT! ;-)

    BTW that is a nice looking gun. I sold my Springfield 1911 but it was still the best looking 1911 that I owned.

    I guess I could just call springfield then about the rod and cap?

    Im goin' saturday.. can't wait lol.. theres a bunch of great guys @ A & P arms that are usually more than willing to throw some tips out there, their awesome. Why'd you sell your springer?
