No gun out there has given me a case of the 'wants' in some time.
And I always liked my simplified inventory control with ammo by not clouding it up with a buncha different things. I've even been offloading .40 cal now that I have a 5.56 gun. So no extra complication, just a shift around.
All the cool kids are getting 9mm. I am training in .22 only, and coming off that to big-boy centerfire, it might be better to go push the Easy-Button of recoild control. And I doubt the ghost of Jeff Cooper will haunt me too much.
So, I've been looking and dreaming.
"Time for that Glock 19, T-Bolt?"
Nah. While the simulator is all Glock, and I don't despise the platform as much as I once did, that wasn't what I was thinking.
"S&W M&P then, T-Bolt?" In .45 maybe. But no.
THIS! RIA's .22 TCM 1911 single stack
I can get the trigger done myself in a 1911 class, and it comes with a 9mm barrel too. So I get the practical 9mm and the fun little fireball .22TCM. Plus, a light rail. And not all that expensive.
Crazy, I know.
The other option is a double stack 1911 like the STI Guardian, but different. For extra bangs. RIA makes a twofer. Or fourfer. Double stack AND .22TCM/9mm combo.
Plus I get to take 1911 classes with Sam to tune up the gun, either way.
So... why, why not?
