I just cranked through this whole thread in one sitting and am absolutely amazed by all the beauty! Some very fine and impressive firearms here guys! I only have one 1911 so far but it's my favorite firearm by far, and I can't wait to have at least two for every day of the week I noticed someone else in this thread had the same SW I have, I am looking for a 'twin' of this 1911 if anyone has one they'd be willing to sell

PS: My screensaver says THANK YOU ALL!

Kimber Eclipse Ultra, with full sized magazine extender. 8 rounds of .45acp vs 6 or 7, in a small frame. Not a bad thing...and provides an even better grip in a still small frame. 100% reliable:

A little nicer pic of it, with standard 7 round magazine:

ive had a couplee of others in the past that had to be sold but this one never will. I feel the Ruger SR1911 is a very good 45.

Low end 1911, but has functioned flawlessly for the past 5 years and is fun to shoot.

Sig Sauer 1911 Target Nitron;

I'm not sure if I like the original grips above, or these Cocolobo diamond grips;

One of our good customers received a few guns this week... the first was an engraved Wilson Combat which was georgeous, but he had "new grips" for it... made from the last Chestnut tree off Mt. Vernon plantation (documented). It was beautiful BEFORE the grips were installed, and literally breathtaking if you like 1911's.

The other guns were a pair of Les Baer 1911's that came in yesterday. The "new grips" for these were made of Mastadon Ivory from Russia. The screws for those grips were unavailable when we received the guns, so they will be "fixed" later... but some days, you just like to be working at the gun shop... you meet the nicest guns... er, people...

The only time America is safe is when congress and the Senate are out of session.

Why carry "high capacity" pistols (or more than one gun)? The answer was found in the movie "Unforgiven"... where the one armed sheriff's deputy had only one arm and three guns... his reply..."I don't want to get killed for a lack of shootin' back"...
