Hello from the Peoples Republic of New Jersey. I just bought my first Springfield 1911 a Loaded. I also own a XDS in .45ACP. I am a semi auto guy as all but 1 of my guns is a semi-auto. Not saying I'll never get another revolver but, having to much fum with my auto's. I reload as well. Well, just started and did my first batch of 45's will see how that goes. I won't use my new Loaded till I know they are good. I cannot wait to get back to my home state of Pennsylvania because here well i don't need to tell anyone. My thoughts go out to all my fellow gun owners in California. i'll be praying you guys throw Jerry Brown the heck out and get all his garbage overturned. God Speed to all.
