Celebrated 3/29/2011 the right way!

I picked up an RIA M1911A1 today, I know it's a cheaper 1911, but I gotta start somewhere!
I now have a Sig 1911C3 and this one.....on my way!

Anybody else pick up a 1911 on the anniversary date?

Any thoughts on this gun? I have seen a bunch of favorable remarks, that's what tempted me on it.
