    Hey everyone, I'm a new member from CO. I love my 1911's like everyone else. My dearly beloved is a Colt Competition in .45ACP. Series 70 of course... I look forward to intriguing conversations with everyone! Also, I'm trying to move a Ruger SR1911 Navy Seal Foundation .45ACP 5" pistol as...

    Hello, I'm Gene and I've been shooting since I was a teenager. That was a few years ago. :) Hoping to join in on conversations where I can add something, but to do more listening than talking. Having two ears and one mouth, I've found using them proportionally is a good thing.;)

    Good morning! This is my first post, and hopefully far from my last. I'm finally at a point in my life where I can afford to start picking up a new gun or two here and there, and have decided that the 1911 is most definitely the way to go! My edc I've had for almost 10 years is a Kimber Ultra...

    Im a long time lurker but will be posting a thread soon regarding trouble shooting a problem I and DW have not been able to resolve. Like most of you I own and enjoy many types of guns but have special affection for 1911's. I currently own 3 Colt's, a Springer, and the problematic DW Specialist...

    Hello to all on the forum. I am an old school adherent of the "one man, one gun" school of shooting when it comes to pistols. I have been a student of the gun for over 50 years and my pistol of choice is John Browning's masterful .45ACP 1911. I have a Wilson Combat CQB Compact for summer...

    Behind enemy lines as some might say, but I'll never leave. This place is my home. I'll never abandon this beautiful state to those deluded, benighted fools trying to destroy it.

    Happy New Year to you all, I am an looking to get a 1911 this year. I've own 2 or 3 over the years and the last one was a full size I traded to get a Browning HP back in 1989. I will never ever trade or sell it, but it needs a brother (lol) so I'm looking at getting a commander in 9mm. I have...

    I am a new member and I am addicted to the 1911 platform. I just have four 1911 pistols. A Colt government, Dan Wesson PM7, Les Baer Premier II and a Nighthawk Talon. John Browning was a very special gun designer/engineer.

    Hello Fellow JMB design aficionados! My name is Dan and that is my original Colt Commander proudly (and defiantly) sitting atop a pile of Glocks during Glock Days this year; the Glock Rep was none too impressed lol I don't know how I haven't found this forum for so long, because I've been...

    Hello, new to the forum but old to pistols. I have not shot 1911s much since I was in the USMC back in the day when we carried 1911s, but a recent purchase of a Dan Wesson has got me going again. Again, hello and I look forward to the experience.

    Hello. Just signed up. Looking forward to learning and hopefully making some worth while contributions. I don’t get to shoot as much as I’d like to, partly because I’m in this ridiculous state where ranges are far and few , work, and a 13 yr old daughter. I’m a 1911 fan. Have a TRP and one of...
