I'm pretty new to the 1911 platform. I bought my first 1911 last March, a Sringfield Loaded, and have been enjoying it enormously. I had a trigger job done on in to get the weight down to 3 pounds from how it came from the factory, a whopping 5.75 pounds. It is my most accurate pistol, by far, or, I should say, this is the pistol I can shoot most accurately.

Here's a picture of it, with an explanation of what the symbol on the grip means.

Verbum Domini Manet in Aeternum

VDMA

The Word of the Lord Endures Forever is the motto of the Lutheran Reformation, a confident expression of the enduring power and authority of God’s Word. The motto is based on Isaiah 40:6-8 quoted by 1 Peter 1:24-25. It first appeared in the court of Frederick the Wise in 1522. He had it sewn onto the right sleeve of the court’s official clothing, which was worn by prince and servant alike. It was used by Frederick’s successors, his brother John the Steadfast, and his nephew John Frederick the Magnanimous. It became the official motto of the Smalcaldic League and was used on flags, banners, swords, and uniforms as a symbol of the unity of the Lutheran laity who struggled to defend their beliefs, communities, families and lives against those who were intent on destroying them.*

Those grips (and corresponding explanation) are familiar. If you are who I think you are, welcome aboard sir. :thumb:

...if you aren't the Rev, welcome aboard anyway. :rofl2:

I gave you plenty of crap on another site but have much more respect for you for these days after one of your posts there. Welcome, and let us all start again with a clean slate.

Limb, if you it leave out on the counter you might be. If you hide the bottle under the sink behind the dish washing detergent you might be a Baptist.

EDIT: No offense to either. I have walked both those roads. :>)
