    My Easter Sunday treated me to meeting @BCD 45, an Addict many of you hold in high regard. After our FTF transaction for the two ‘Hawks pictured below I can now officially join the ranks of grateful brothers in arms for someone who we’re all lucky to have among us. A true gentleman, as honest as...

    I dug some @Gripwright Cherokee Hill exotics out today and dressed up the 38 super Custom Shop CBOB and my recently received 9mm VBOB. The VBOB is going to go through a transformation with a DLC'd or battle worn steel slide, new sights, Stan Chen TS, WC semi-extended slide/release, hammer...

  9. Range Reports & Reviews
    I finally made it to the range yesterday to shot two guns for the first time, a combination of work, back spams, conserving ammo and the range being so busy has cit down on my shooting by 75% of late. First I shot the "new-to-me" Benchmark Precision 38 super bobtail and boy was I impressed...

    Looking to see if it's worth converting my Dan Wesson TCP to .38 super. I've always wanted to convert a 1911 9mm carry piece to .38 super. Kind of liking the feel of my DW TCP 9mm but trying to see if it was feasible to convert it to .38 super but not finding a "drop-in" 4" ramped bull barrel...

    I got this idea from a thread by @azguy1911 . After a great suggestion by @BuckyP I decided to start a poll to get the count!

    I had been eyeing this on GB for what felt like weeks and finally said "what the hell, life is short" and I'm a two/tone whore so... Serial #0002, wow. I talked with Rob and he built the gun in 2013 and it may go back to him for some updates (it needs sights as they are dated 2012) but I loved...

    Hey guys. New here and looking for a little help. I already had a few but my father in law graciously left me his collection of 1911's. (don't hate!) There are several very nice early Colts but one kinda peaks my interest. I have the receipt and he paid about $3500 for it but not sure what it's...

    It may not 100% qualify as a "bargain" but for a GI with duel 9mm/38 super barrels it's not bad at all https://www.gunbroker.com/item/884476624

    I'm curious, just make one post here if you own a 38 super. I'm not interested in how many you own -- just if you have one or more. Go

    38 super, 9mm, this is a great deal for an addict that wants to dip a toe into 38 super waters https://www.gunbroker.com/item/885628041

    I've never heard of these but it would be neat to have 38 super in your pocket or on your ankle https://www.gunbroker.com/item/884882284

    Well, I'm just not a Government guy and I would like to order a HC ACW Carry so it make sense that this goes up. I paid well over $4,000 for this spectacular hard-chrome'd 1911 and it's perfect in everyway, maybe 6-8 magazines through it in one range session and it's been in the safe ever...
