Reading the history of the 1911 .45 on sightM1911.com had me recharge my phone a bunch of times. From 100% to battery is low. When I first started it was to find out what pistol my wife's grandfather had just had us take home. It's a 1918- 1911 .45 in sutch good shape I thought it was a fairly new pistol.(me not knowing alot about it) He now can't see or hear without you shouting or help finding things.. I have a picture of him from when he was young and a B-17 Bomber radio operator. He talked to me about the pretty girl he wanted to marry who was English and how she had lost both of her brothers who where fighter pilots . Then showed me the pipe the mother of the girl had given to him to remember her sons . It was a topic of conversation between the two brothers and my wife's grandfather,during his time spent with them. He sometimes drifts away in the middle of the conversation about WWll , but the looks at me and smiling says things like "had some good wine" and "dropped allot of bombs" the man is my hero.. 6 Bronze Stars and a chest full of metals, A lawyer and a tax collector till he retired. A hunter for almost 90 years . He is 96 . A good man. I will honor him by taking good care of his 1911 .45 and making sure that it is a family heirloom past down .
