The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
"Seriously - buy some Crimson Trace grips. You will be AMAZED. They'll do a lot to teach you what you do wrong."
Been there, done that. My first ever 1911 is a Kimber Pro Covert II, in part because it comes with Crimson Trace laser grips, which thus costs less than buying them separately and doesn't require modifying an ambidextrous safety to mount them. Tastes great, less filling.
