    Hello 1911 addicts, great to be aboard here. I've been a member of 1911forum for years, but have been reading here as a guest for months and finally decided to join. I'm a LEO from Central AL and have always loved 1911 handguns. I have recently taken a strong interest in the 2011 also. I brought home a STI Tactical 4.0 today!! Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to our forum from Northern Italy.

    Classic collectible "USGI 1911s", full size "SIG Sauers" and "CZ" sport pistols have always been among my favourite guns.
    For the range I have mainly owned 1911s, CZs, and half a dozen SIG Sauers; great guns especially older German-proofed ones, the SIG Sauer P226 to me is probably the most reliable pistol that I have owned in over 38 years of shooting handguns, and I've seen enough makes and models, in all service calibers, to know what to trust and what not to.
    I collected for years, then I realized that an ever-taller pile of guns made my life no happier, so I decided to take a hiatus from it, I started to thin my collection and decided to enjoy the too many guns that I already had in my safe.
    So no more new guns for a while, but since I'm still a big 1911 enthusiast I decided to keep my small collection of 1911s, and reserve mainly my P226s and the Shadow 2 for the range.
    With guns I love learning with enthusiasm something new every day.
    After more than 38 years of guns-ownership and reloading, I still enjoy shooting steel plates and going to the range at least twice a week.
    JMO this is one of the best gun forums among the several I belong to, to me it's quite a learning experience, I hope you'll enjoy your time here.

    Life is good.
