Thanks for having me! I am bit by the 1911 bug for sure. After I sold my Desert Eagle 20 years ago, I said to myself "I think I would like a 1911", and so finally got into it since a friend ordered grips from me out of my CF material, and wish I had the $ sooner to get one and shoot. I believe the 1911 was divinely ordained by God to be created by man (JMB), the same way He intended chocolate chip cookie dough to be made (but not baked) and the design of the Stratocaster guitar to be made. Perfect design first time. I am not always covered in CF, as I finally contained all my machining process to be full dust collected or machined with water, but there always seems to black crap in my nose. Looking forward to being part of this community.
