    As you can see by what a new member said to our family, & it seems that way to me as well . I believe our Forum is made up of a family of Friends. Just why is that you ask?
    Go back & search for when one of our family members ask for Prayers for a loved one.

    Just look at all the pics & info of all the 1911s we all share with our friends here.
    A great example is when recently @Zoid/Gary shared a beautiful collection of Llama pistols,
    & an in depth history of these Spanish made 1911s with all of us. What a great read Gary
    thank you.

    When you have been a member of other forums, I believe you all can see the difference, just look at our way we welcome our new members. Warm welcomes & pictures that all are intended to make a new guy or gal feel they have found a real friendly Forum.

    When you get a chance just send a PM to one of your Addict friends, & let them know how much you like them. I'll bet you find that you both have a lot in common and begin a great friendship.

    I just want to say thank you to the members of my Addict family. Thank you, for your friendship & kindness, for sharing all the pictures & information about the great 1911s we all love so much.

    Mike

    I will admit that this is my favorite forum for 1911s, or any other gun for that matter, and I seldom even log into any of those other sites anymore.

    For a group that has cost me more than I ever imagined possible in the gun hobby (Two years ago I thought for weeks before spending $1,200 on a Kimber :roflmaro:) they are an OK bunch :)

    Like it for a lot of reasons, some of my previous preferred sites have gotten overrun with snobs, know it alls, and dipwads.

    I'm relatively safe from that since I had to retire early and am poor now.

    When I was still working, the Hobby Machinist forum cost me tens of thousands of dollars. :eek:

    This website has cost me way too much money already. I'm NOT looking forward to talking to you people at Thanksgiving this year.

    This is exactly what i referring to. Jokin around ,bustin chops knowing each other. On the other side of it one needed help or someone to talk to you would be there for that friend when they needed it the most.

    I probably haven’t been around long enough to be part of the family yet, but I’ll be damned if I haven’t been treated like I am.

    This place has replaced almost all my other gun forums!

    Just wait until the first Saturday in June. If Limbkiller throws his annual shindig, you’ll see what a wonderful group we really have.
