    Hi everyone,

    New to this forum but not to any of the other 1911 boards. Have been passionate 1911 fan since the early 70s when I first got my CCW. I enjoy all type of handguns but some how the 1911 platform and in particular the history of Colt's 1911 has won me over. I have a number of 1911s from a number of different manufacturers but Colts are special to me.

    Living in Metropolitan NYC is a pain for any firearms lover because of the licensing of every single gun but you learn patience and the ability and enjoy what you have.

    I am always on the quest for a New Gun. Unfortunately there aren't enough gun shops that are local so I can not go out and "handle" all those that interest me. I do from time to time place orders for a new gun direct with the manufacturer but the wait for a new gun is huge often more than 6 months and than add to that another 60 days or so to get it registered so you can take delivery but such as it is I can't ever tire of the hobby.

    Looking forward to making a bunch of new on line friends on this board.

    Thanks for letting me say hello!

    Tony
