"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it." -Mark Twain
Wow. Pass the Kleenex.
I just love the Mexican-themed pistols which couldn't ever be legally owned in Mexico (at least, not without paying a whole lot of mordida).
Zapata, what have they done to your beloved country?
Here's your bill of rights
The "Bill of Rights" one and the blue, gold, and silver one are both a little gaudy for my taste, but the all-white-metal job is gorgeous. The top-view-only one is probably stunning as well.
But these are "safe queens" all.
Even the strawberry blonde of my wildest fantasies would get a lot more serious...um...use than these pistols would.
I was finally able to get a second to take photos of the Colts. The Kimber is my new project gun

KIMBER Custom Carry (Series I)
KIMBER Stainless II
Nice weapons, but not my style. You might as well be carrying around a gold DE .50 if you wanna be that flashy
I'm pretty sure a lot of the "Flashy" 1911's listed here would never be carried. My Kimber custom carry will be carried once I have upgraded it with a few perks. I know that there is no way I would even think of carrying one of the Colts. Not only are they nice guns but they have sentimental values not to mention way to expensive to even think about replacing.
I think others would feel the same.
Not my cup of tea, but it is nice work.
l ilke the oak theme on the colt custom shop diamond grade. now a nice holster with oak leaves on it.. yeah, i'd carry that if i had the money .
course i don't .
I have very similar feelings, I will not buy a gun that I will not carry and shoot. But some people collect, and some buy to see what can be built. My Colt's were actually bought by my grandfather and both used in competition and are still sparsely shot on occasion.
Man...There's just no other way to look at it..Those are some damn nice guns...I know..I said Damn..
I've seen that bill of rights gun on an auction or gun show I swear..How many of those were made?
I inherited a couple of revolvers from my wife's side of the family.
One of them is an old S&W 32 long in nickel w/mother of pearl grips.
I would like to sell it, to help pay for a new 45, but my wife says "That's my dady's gun. Don't you dare sell it!"
She never looks at it and doesn't know where it is for cryin out loud.
You know if I sell it, she will be asking about it the next day.
I too am not a collector. If it's for home defense, carry, target or plinking
To her...this gun has sentimental value, which over-rides my desire for another 45. Guess I'll have to sell something else and work a little harder to get another 45.
its not a colt , but they are all mine!
The Bill of Rights gun is DAMN sexy I wish I could afford something like that
