    Well, the 1st pic w/ the comp - I had it from 1997/1998 thru Feb 05. I needed $ to buy some new guns. Plus, it was super, super loud - not really a gun I wanted for self-defense/home defense. Permanent hearing damage time.

    2nd gun - had it about a month. Didn't find out about the dreaded aluminum frame gouge that one can get when having a 1911 w/ an aluminum frame and metal follower in the mag. Don't understand why Kimber sells a gun w/ mags that will damage said gun. On just 2 trips to the range, I developed the very beginnings of that gouge U can get inside the grip. And, Wilson mags (w/ a plastic follower) would not feed reliably in the gun - only factory mags would. Also developed wear on the feedramp in the frame after just 2 trips). Pissed me off for a $900+ gun.

    3rd gun - Very first 1911 I ever had. Sold it in 2001 to buy a telescope.

    4th 1911 - A Dan Wesson - Traded it back on the 1st day I owned it. Hated the big dot sights - rear sight shot loose on my first range trip. The rear sight cut was also cut so large for the sight that I couldn't put any other brand of sight in w/o having the slide welded. Traded it back that day for a Glock 34.

    5th 1911 - That is my most recent - Tripp Research screwed up the refinish job. After I sent it back a 2nd time, it was still messed up - Couldn't stand to look at it anymore - Traded it back to the shop.

    Good Idea!

    Shipwreck:

    Handgunner that I am, I am often in the dark regarding the cryptic numbers often posted here abouts. I really don't know what an H&K USP nor a Walther P-499 looks like, nor even what caliber they might be.

    Those more familiar with such things rattle off the numbers so glibly expecting the rest of the world to know. We don't.

    Kimber Pro Carry II, it now has a set of Pachmayr All American grips.



    Taurus PT1911, great gun at any price! Now has the grips that used to be on the Pro Carry.

    Talking My Wifes

    Her's a shot of my Wife's 1911-45,S&W #108282 ss. This gun shoots anything you put in it. I reload and it gets a good mix of ammo run through it.
