Man is this thing accurate. I have shot my 1911 Para Limited 14.45 for 2 years now..wow, have I been living under a rock..this Springfield is waaay more accurate that my para. Dont get me wrong, Para makes a good gun, this is just accurate. Anywho, just wanted to share my new toy. I was doing some drawing from the hip this weekend,it was scary when I got a bullseye on a 1/2 inch circle.
