Nice dude!  I'm not familiar with those but I just did a quick internet search and folks are singing lots of praises for them.  Sounds like a great gun.  Here is what I've got for a 1911.  I've been extremely happy with it.  I had a Springfield A1 Loaded which was an absolute lemon.  I sent it back three times for them to fix stuff and it was never fully remedied.  I got rid of it, spent the extra $$$, and got myself a Les Baer.  I haven't regretted that for a minute.

And I just got word that my Ruger Mini 14 arrived to the shop!  After work I'll cruise down there to get my paperwork started on it.  Score!  Very Happy

I'm kind of partial to the Kimber models of 1911s myself.

Kimbers are nice, but my budget just won't allow me to have one.  I'll stick with Rugers as they are much less damaging to the ol' wallet.

I have to throw out there that my lcp ii is finicky.  Very picky with ammo.  The only defense round that has consistently cycled through without a problem has been the sig Sauer v crown.  Most of the time Winchester white box will cycle with no problem but today I had two hang ups.  Most of the time I can't get through a shooting session without a jam in that gun.

For target/fun guns, reliability is really nice but not a "must have."  For defensive weapons, it's an absolute must.  For a long time I had my 1911 as my home defense gun and I keep my Kahr PM9 handy for outings.  Both are exceedingly reliable and I'd trust my life on 'em.

But speaking of Rugers, I got my Mini 14!  It's so pretty.  Very Happy  I can't wait to shoot it but haven't had a chance yet.  I ordered a red-dot sight for it too.  Unfortunately, the 10-round magazines I bought don't fit...  Apparently, Ruger changed their Mini 14's quite a bit in recent years and so some of the older parts don't fit with the newer rifles.  So now I gotta figure out how to handle that.  Sigh...  But the 5-rounders it came with fit fine so it's not too big of an issue, just a hassle.
