All that hype with their marketing:  "Train with your 1911 at pennies to the ammo dollar"  Pfff!

But with 1500 rounds through mine in a year, it might have actually been a good purchase and value for the $150?  $200?  I bought it 8 years ago, I dunno what I paid for it.  Used.

Sure a Ruger MkIII of some flavor would have served.  And cost about the same, essentially.  But I am getting much more out of the conversion kit that I thought I would.  Beyond my wildest dreams.

I am starting to miss my new 9mm.  It's in the shop, still, to get a holster made.   Delayed a bit because the shop is moving to new digs.  Darn it.  And YOU try to rush a gunsmith.  I dare you.  It's the assistant gunsmith making the holster, but still.

I am looking forward to seeing the new shop.

But all good things come to an end.  My long familiarity with the .22 kit should be waning as I graduate to shooting poorly with centerfire ammo instead.  At least I hope to.  Too shoot 1500 + rounds of 9mm instead of .22.  Let's see.

Shoot that much 9mm and you're going to want to be reloading.That is, unless you are better off than me.

I'm a big fan of .22 for practice. If you can shoot .22 accurately, you can shoot the big stuff as well. On the other hand, if you can't hit the target with .22, you are not going to do better with anything else.
