    Lindsey shot Rock Island Armory's XT 22, a 22 magnum, 14 round, 1911 style design. It has a pinned 5'barrel, and a delayed blow back action. Although it has the same feel as a 1911, the grip radius is slightly longer to accomodate the laonger cartridge. This auto allowed the shooter to quick follow up shots on target, with light recoil and a good defensive cartridge.
