    I thought I would join a forum, and "addicts" fits my taste well.
    I am more of a sig guy, use one at work, and one for home protection.
    I like to build things, and thought I would build a 1911 next.

    The rainy side of the island, I like it.
    No plan (sort of) other than hand building everything.
    I am a machinist, but I would like to do it without any power tools of any kind for this build.
    So far I have ordered from 1911 builders a whole kit. (I thought PSA had horrible shipping wait times, but 1911 builders is far longer for instock items).
    But I will probably only use the frame and slide, as I have also ordered all the other parts from brownells. The only piece left is the barrel.

    Haha - yes! We were out there in late summer when there was still some question as to who would be the starting QB, Tua or Jaylen. As soon as folks heard we were from ‘Bama, we recieved a hearty round of “Roll Tide” greetings! It was neat seeing Alabama stickers,etc. on vehicles and the like so far from home.
