Nice guns :)
Nice guns :)
Yes I own several.....:smt033
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!:smt1099
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?
I own 3 1911s
my first one is a Kimber Tactical Custom Pro II
Second on is my CCW, Springer Micro Compact
3rd Colt Lightweight Commander. (which is the middle one)
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. :smt1099
Only 1 for know Colt defender lightwieght. But will be adding more soon.:smt1099 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.:smt023
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.
Springfield 1911A1 I named her Lucille anything that looks this good just has to be named Lucille. "Cool Hand Luke"
17 for me.
I don't currently have one but I hope to one day down the road.
