I would like to know how many of ya own a Rock Island Amory 1911?? I have thought about buying one for possible carry and more for the fun of a low budget 1911 shooter...I have read great things bout this lil jewel but would like to know if anyone believes enough in them to use as a carry piece also?? My other option is an XDM9/40 but I already own a full size XD45TAC so I would like a lil 1911 and cant spend the savings on a nice SA TRP right now.....Thanks

I've had a RIA 1911 for awhile and like it just fine. I got a GREAT deal on it from a local pawnshop. I already had a Kimber Custom II, so the RIA was my second 1911.

If you've really got your eye on a higher-end 1911, just save your money and buy it first. Personally, I'd hold out 'til I had enough for a Kimber. Nothing wrong with an RIA, but I definitely consider my RIA to be more of just a blaster.
