I decided that I wanted a hobby that was cheaper than kart racing, so I decided to try out USPSA shooting. I planned on either the production class with a Glock 34 or the single stack class with a 1911. Since I shoot better with the 1911 I figured that I'd be best off going that route. AB13 pointed me towards Springer Precision as a source of a ready to go STI Spartan. This should give me a good place to get started and get some experience under my belt. Now all I need are the mags/mag carriers/holster. It showed up today. Sorry that I don't have any sweet backgrounds.
