    I've been a member for awhile now. But I’m disabled, so I haven’t been active - aside from popping in once in a great while to see what’s shaking. I’m trying to work my forums - such as they are - into my routine. Without much luck, sadly.
    I’m a 64-yr-old former Recon Marine, a lifetime ago. Been disabled with spinal injuries since 2005. I get to the range once or twice a year, minimum, to fire, test, or
    otherwise just enjoy my weapons. Chief among which is my pair of Colt Gov’t Models. One made in 1983, the other in 2004. Both Series 80. And a have an RIA 1911 Compact Tactical. Not as nice. But it’ll do.
    Thanks for listening. See ya around.

    Thank you for your service BDD. My first 1911 was a stainless Colt Series 80 in .45 ACP (the only caliber for 1911 ). I still have it. I still love it. Welcome from God's country Arizona.

    Welcome Sir from NW Arkansas. I'm about your age, was in college in the early 1970's when 'Nam was winding down. Most kids were running away from military service, I have deep respect and appreciation for your service to our country.
