    I like the sights on my RIA tac series 1911's much better than on my other 1911's. The fiber optic front helps a lot.

    I made up a brass catcher from a tin bin for when shooting off the bench. I did line it with rubber roofing. It's like this. I lay on the bench next to the gun. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Better-Homes-Gardens-Large-Galvanized-Bin/382161381

    I have some .358 coated cast 124 grain i ordered for my 357. Im thinking about trying some in 9mm. Would the bigger diameter cause pressure issues? I will start at the starting data.
