    Used to shoot with my older brother when I was younger. But got married and had kids and the wife didn't want guns around. Well, the kids are gone and started target soothing about 2 years ago. First handgun was aS&W procure 9mm, quickly followed by a Ruger 22/45 Lite, aCZ97B, aCZ Shadow Tec. Well my brother lends a 1911 to try. Liked it way too much so now I have a SF 1911 Stainless ra nge Officer. Like but minor problem with rear sight pivot pin falling out. SIGH!

    Thanks guys. My slide is in the hands of Springfield. Called them and they promptly sent me an RMA and a a prepaid fedex mailing label. Last I heard it was going to take a couple of weeks to get the slide back and they most likely would replace the rear sight. I hope this makes it comparable in accuracy to my CZ 97B.
