    I'd love to pick up a shotgun, or an AR, but I like handguns too much so usually if I have the money to pick something up, that is what it goes towards. To take it further, I have a Colt Defender, A Taurus model 85 Ultra-lite, and a '67 Walther PP, but when it comes to trying to pick out what I want next, I always come back to the 1911 style. The only reason I have the Taurus and Walther is from trading previous handguns before I was introduced to the 1911. I'm still trying to dig up a Springfield EMP which is a lot of money for a 9mm, but so much sexier than the Glock 19 I was leaning towards.

    Cause I enjoy it. I have sold nice guns just because I did not have fun shooting them. They were great guns that I liked, but they just were not fun to shoot. They did not "flic my bic" so to speak. Had to go to try other stuff.

    After all these years I still enjoy shooting the 1911 in .45 ACP more than any other pistol. Recoil is not bad, but you know you shot something. It has a low BOOOOOM, instead of of a high sharp BANG. It is cool to shoot a long way, watching the sun glint off the bullet as it travels and then finally hearing the thunk when it hits. :D

    Shooting 55 gallon metal drums at 200 yards is an absolute hoot.
