    Some very pretty guns in this post (I wish I could figure out how to post my pictures)

    I'm down to two .45's right now .

    I own a Kimber Pro CDP II with Crimson Tide Laser Grips (that I really like ) and a S&W 4516.

    but I had others - I like them all

    Inherited my Dad's Singer-made Colt 1911 in 1981. Didn't want the hassle involved with taking it with me as I moved around in the AF...and didn't know what it would eventually be worth so sold it for $200. Am making up for lost time now--acquisitions as well as range time with a Nighthawk Talon, pair of Colt 01918 WWI replicas which I doubt I'll ever shoot, a current Series 70 Colt 1911, and one of the new Colt Rail Guns. While I'm sure I'll eventually add a Wilson, Ed Brown, or another Nighthawk (particularly with a 4" or 4.5" barrel), there's something absolutely addictive about Colts.

    You can't go wrong with a single stack 45 acp, that is heavy. 1911s are tried and true pistols, worked for the American GI in WWII and will still work for many USMC units today.

    I love mine. It's my first one.

    Dad had some years ago, but they were not in his collection when he passed away.
    He was a navigator on C-130's and he carried one. It was not issued, but those guys bent a lot of rules.

    Hi all:

    My name is 1911/W_HotSauce and I have a problem with 1911s.

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time;
    Enjoying one moment at a time;
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen.

    The only real reason the US armed forces went to the 9mm was to standardize with NATO. HA NATO like they ever did any thing for US!

    WE went from the best damn combat handgun ever devised by the human mind (god bless John Mosses Browning) and the best round to the puny

    9mm and the Beretta M9! Outdated my foot !!!

    Springfield Armory 1911-A1 Loaded .45ACP

    Plan to get more 1911s once I find my own place. (Live with anti-gun parents who keep telling me I don't need more guns).



    Had a Rock Island Armory 1911-A1 .45ACP before, but was forced to sell it.

    Some military still use 1911s. There are police departments that use 1911s (Such as the LAPD that carries the Kimber). Some SWAT teams use 1911s. Springfield Armory sells a 1911 that is near identical to the one used by the FBI. I think that's the TRP Operator. No they're still in use by lots of people more than just for sport and/or collecting.

    And hey, 1911s ARE reliable. They never had the same problems as the Berettas did. Only guns that measure up to a 1911 in my opinion are the H&K's.

    I just jumped on board the 1911 train this week, it should be in my hands by friday. Springfield Armory Parkerized Loaded 45 ACP. Once I shot and handled a couple 1911's, I knew I had to have one. Once I started looking around at the different 1911's that are popular, I know I will certainly own several when finances allow.

    Not mine,but just like it;
