    I'm new to the forum in the waning hours of 2018. Finally saw the light and added a SA RO 5" 1911-A1 to the collection. Soon .45 ACP dies appeared on the Dillon 550, and now all my 9mm sit unloved.

    I'm [plotting] [planning] hoping to add an officer or commander size 1911 soon for EDC (justification? "Maintain a consistent manual of arms"). I carry daily, in all sorts of situations, and have been since the mid 1990s.

    I'm Act 235 certified in PA (armed security) and retired Army officer (AR, Cav, IN)

    We live in the currently free Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

    Postscript: My first encounters with the 1911 were inauspicious (worn out old Army National Guard range issue). I shunned them and grabbed the cool-guy .40 caliber Glock 23 as my first true EDC gun.

    So it took some research and recalibration before I made the plunge back into 1911 land.

    So far, so good!

    Welcome from Alabama, and Happy New Year!

    You mentioned adding an Officer or Commander sized 1911 - keep in mind the fabled “CCO” sized marriage of the Officer frame to a Commander slide!

    For best results, you should probably just acquire all three haha! ;-)
