Intro

Howdy from East Tennessee!!!!
Long time 1911 Shooter from my Military days in 1969-Present, Just put a Used Ruger SR 9mm in layaway at my Local range!!. Thought I would try the 9MM World!!
Interesting!!, I took the 9MM to the range to test shoot, using Inexpensive "Remington Range Rounds" before I committed, Had quite a LOT Of Recoil!, actually ( To me ) Equal to or More than my Para Ordnance 1911 .45acp w/ 5" Barrel shooting "Lawman Loads"!! I was really Surprised, anyway, I am sure I will get used to it! A Good Friend who is a "Gunsmith" & Machinist, said I need to get a Light Disconnect, not even sure what that is but since he seems to know what he's doing Guess I will get that and let him "Tune It Up". I am an Old Dog in a New World, so I hope to Listen and Learn from ya'll!! Any Advice?? Tips?? Help an Old War Dog out here Guys!!
Thanks!!!!
Ed

Welcome to the forum and thank you for your service.
enjoy your 9mm but use it, and get used to it before you start changing out all kinds of parts.

Welcome from central Ohio.

Owning both a 1911 45 cal, two 9mm's and shooting factory ammo, I can shoot 9mm for nearly half the price of 45, but the 1911 is great for pin shooting, love that 1911 trigger.
