    Hey Guys.
    I've been to this site a few times from recomendations from glocktalk.com. I've always loved the 1911 and own one, and bought another, but it hasn't been delivered yet. I'm originally from Virginia but am currently in Iraq. Love 1911's and will probably be the only kind of pistol that I buy. I have a couple of other pistols (revolvers, modern etc.) but nothing just catches my eye like a good ole 1911. Anyways, I'm bored overseas and figured I'd finally join since I'm here a lot.

    What 1911 do you have, and what's on the way? :thumb:

    I have a Metro Arms made Firestorm DLX. BAC1023 recommended it and said it was a good shooter. I've never heard of the company until I was doing research on the maker. Bac and many other people recommended it. So for the price, I figured If I didn't like it, I could sell it used (it was new when I bought it from a friend) for the same price I bought it for. I also just recently bought a brand new pony. It'll be delivered on 15 Dec by Colt. Our unit bought it as a deployment edition. I thought i had a picture of it on my computer, but can't find it. Oh well, I'll be sure to send pictures once I'm home :)

    Well it all started out in Basrah. Compared to where I'm at now, Basrah was Awesome. Currently I'm in Tallil. Either way though, It'll all be over soon.

    LBC, how does one become a certified armorer for a company? I noticed you have Glock, Colt, and H-K. What are the steps to become certified?
    Thank you to everyone for the warm welcomes btw!

    Welcome from another Virginian and thanks for your service!
    My stepson made it through Iraq and Afghanistan even with an IED versus MRAP event. (the MRAP was toast but all inside made it in one piece...)
