Howdy all, from sunny Kalifornia, the land which recently received glowing reviews from the Brady Campaign. I discovered this place while looking for some 1911 writeups to help my brother select his first 1911. I found a really good one here which helped me guide him away from what I think would have been a mistake. So today he picked out his new 1911. I figure maybe he'll come out here and post on his own. I only have one 1911 myself, a Springfield GI Champion which is my main carry. It is a fine gun, though I'm still working on my accuracy with it. I'm about to try it out in my local action pistol activities. Anyway, I look forward to posting with all of you.
