If there is anything I have learned in 40 years of shooting, it is if you buy cheap, you buy twice. When it comes to optics many that are OK for informal target practice and others are suited to some forms of competition. However, if you need a quality holographic sight for critical use, few if any, have stood the test of time as the EOTech sight has.

Before I begin singing the praises of the Springfield EMP 1911, I should say that I have never felt the 9mm 1911 made a lot of sense. It was like putting a six cylinder engine in a Corvette. The 10mm 1911 is like a 454 Chevelle by comparison. However, the Springfield EMP is not an average 1911 9mm.
Springfield’s SAINT was the first AR-15 rifle to proudly wear the Springfield Armory stamp. The rifle has been described as entry level but this isn’t really true.

Considering the conservative nature of shooters, this is quite an accomplishment. Springfield began its climb to the top by offering a good product at a fair price. The Range Officer now continues the tradition.
Springfield Armory gave Serial No. 0001 Chris Kyle 1911 Legend Series TRP Pistol to Chris widow Taya. Taya in turn immediately announced that she would auction it to benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. At the 2016 NRA show in the Springfield Armory booth at 2016 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, the TRP sold for $22,500.
Chris Kyle is an American legend and a symbol of true patriotism. In his book, Chris wrote how while in combat, he chose the Springfield Armory TRP for its reliable performance and toughness. In his words in best-selling book, American Sniper, Chris told how the TRP may have saved his life…
I know there are a lot of fans of the 9mm—particularly after the FBI switched back to the 9mm and a ton of police departments followed suit. On the other hand, the .45 ACP has it followers led by the champions of the 1911. The solution? How about a purpose built 1911 for the 9mm. It’s sacrilege to some and perfection to others, but how it performs is all that really counts.
When it comes to firearms pride, ego and emotional investment seem to take precedence over calm detachment among many shooters. Cold and pragmatic aren’t in the cards. Some make statements with enough conceit to honor a Democratic caucus with enough leftover to feed a small town council room. My educated and well-trained self isn’t immune to such leanings.
