    Ed, this is a RIA compact that I purchased from you earlier this year. They are great guns. I have shot 200 gr JHP,

    230 gr ball, 200 gr lead SWC and 200 gr lead RNFP out of it and it has ran flawlessly.

    Great gun for the money!!

    The pistols are tough to beat for the money. I want to do a high cap 40 for the matches. John, are you doing all of your machine work ? Hope to see you at the State match . Paul Ritch is coming up and we are shooting together like the old days.

    Thanks guys, I have about 30 hours give or take in this one.

    Hey Tom, I am doing all my machine work and refinishing. No I am not going to the state match.

    I just do not have enough time or money to shoot competitively .

    Good luck to you though!!

    John, the machine work looks great ! Keep up the good work. Folks, if John starts to work on 1911 for folks down around Ed’s, you need to jump on the band wagon quick. He will be booked before too long with that quality of work, trust me on that one.

    Glad to hear that you do your buying from Ed, he can’t be beat either !

    Ed, thank you for the kind words. You know that you are like family to me ! We sure do have some miles under our belts together. The thing is that you still stand behind your ideas from when you got started in the garage. A fair price will sell more guns then trying to make a mortgage payment on one gun sell. You have surrounded your business with good employees and you still give 100% to your business. You have earned your spot in the industry. Keep up the good work Brother. I know your Dad was proud !!

    Tom
