Yes I own several.....
Yes I own several.....
There is nothing that compares to the 1911 for me. I am new to 1911's and maybe the honeymoon isn't over yet. The history and the possibilties are the attraction. I have 22 firearms so I do have something to compare to. If you want to shoot cheap get out your .22. Otherwise reload or ammo costs be dammed!
Own several with the Taurus PT1911 being my favorite.
I have a couple: my grandfather's Gov't Model Colt (ca 1918) and my Kimber Stainless II.
When I was shopping for a new pistol I tried a bunch: Glock, Springfield XD, Witness. The Kimber was the only one that SCREAMED at me to take it home.
I am looking forward to adding a Colt Combat Commander to the stable.
I have 4. Kimber Custom II, Kimber Pro Carry II, Sig GSR and this Springfield Milspec that I just picked up and will be doing more work to:
Dammit, got number 5 on the way now. Looking for #6. Anyone know who makes a blued 1911 in 9mm?
Kimber Pro Carry 2 in 45 ACP
SW1911 with Caspian rail and thumb sheild welded on. I also added a magwell and had that machined for a lanyard.
Colt CCO. The slide is stainless, but I had Walter Birdsong give it a Black T treatment. I also added Trijicon night sights and Crimson Trace laser grips (not shown, obviously!)
STI 2011 4.15 Tactical in 9mm
Who dont own a 1911?
Colt and Para and a Llama mark III .380 I almost forgot about. Nothing compares to a 1911,period. I have 23 pistols and I love my Glocks, my Rugers, S&W's, Sig and all the rest. But they ain't no 1911.
I had to vote "no". We need another choice' "not yet". I wanted a 1911, but figured I should get a 9mm first. There is one still on my "short" list. I don't know which one, but every gunny should have at least one.

Only 1 for know Colt defender lightwieght. But will be adding more soon. Make that 2 I just picked up a Kimber Ten II Pro.
I have a Sig Revolution XO.
I was not a 1911 fan when I got my Springfield Loaded. I just felt that everyone needed one in their collection. The SA had a heavy trigger with tons of creep and shot low. A trip back to SA for new sights and a trigger job and I was hooked. I now own a Nighthawk Talon along with the SA and I'm looking to add more.
I have owned many, built 1, and carried 1911's for over 15 years.
The best bang for the buck in a 1911 is with out a doubt the Taurus PT1911.
Get one and you will kick yourself for spending $1000.00+ on a 1911 from anyone but a full custom house.
This gun is very well put together, reliable, and more accurate than many guns costing 3x as much.
js Thanx. Now all I have to do is come up with the money and make the choice. Hmmmm
1 Springfield full sized
1 Norinco full sized
1 Colt 1991A1 Commander
1 Colt lightweight officers model
I have a Baer Concept II, an Ed Brown Kobra Carry, a Kimber Combat Carry, a Colt Commander in .38 Super and the most fun-an RIA Gov't in .38 Super.
But I'm really a wheelgunner at heart.
I have 2 Colt Combat Commanders and 1 Parts gun in 5" 9mm. I have my eye on a series 70 5" .45 from a guy ere at work. I hope to stop soon, but I still dont have a 3- 3.5, or 6 inch.
