    Just ordered an STI RangerII from Talon. I hope the wait is not very long. Anyone recommend a conceal holster for this pistol?

    What mags work good with STIs? I have always used wilson in my other 1911s.

    Also. What Hp rounds are you STI owners using for carry? Which rounds have you tried and had excellent results with?

    Wilson works well in any 1911 platform I have ever shot, and my current carry ammo is Hornady CQ-TAP....

    Awesome, I bought an STI Eagle 5.0 from Talon and it took 3 business days to come in.

    Use the Wilson 47D mags, and shoot whatever you want through it. Speer GoldDots, Hornady TAP, Corbon DPX, etc. are all good choices for 1911s. You want something with a heavy grain weight so the nose is generally elongated, making it feed more like a FMJ.
