    I usually lurk for a while when I find a new site, but liked this one so much while I was poking around this morning that I decided to go ahead and register. I'll be asking more questions here than I will be giving answers, like a typical newbie, and thank you guys in advance for your patience and info.

    Is it possible to be addicted to the 1911 and not have one yet? It must be, because that is my situation. I'm getting back into firearms and shooting after being away for many years, and have not yet decided which 1911 will be my first. Having a lot of fun just looking, but will pull the trigger within the next few months...

    Something about the 1911 - I've not been able to figure out exactly what it is - but it's a gun that I can't get out of my head.

    Yes - that's it - that is exactly it - and it's driving me nuts. I start off with something reasonable like a Ruger SR1911, and then I think, well hell, that's only a few hundred less than a S&W with a bobtail, but then all I have to do is tack a couple of hundred more and I can get a Dan Wesson...

    :wave: welcome.

    The only question we will not tolerate is the "what's the best 1911?" ummm, that's like asking "which Victoria Secret super model I would take home?" :lol:

    Btw, does your spouse know about your addiction?

    Va. Welcome to a crazy forum. Some good guys here as long as you watch out for the NE Ohio guys. There are only 2 of them but due to their insecurity they make it look like more. Have fun and enjoy. Just be very afraid my freind.
