Hi Everyone, My name is Allen - I'm from Quack and knedrgr's back-yard of Cleveland, Ohio. :awesome: I first met both of these guys from our love of Subarus, via the Lake Erie Regional Subaru Owners Club (LERSOC). Actually, Quack's the one that got me started in all of this...his old XDm9 is now my class/range gun: she's got about 12,000 rounds through her, accumulated between now and late November of last year, when I bought it from him. The XDm runs like a champ, and has carried me through now some half-dozen single-day classes with high round counts (some of which were under rather harsh weather conditions). I'm here because I've got a real fetish :51_002: for single-stack 1911-.45s, and as many of you probably know, Quack is the ultimate "pusher." :help: When I bought his 870 off him this past spring, he'd brought out nearly his entire collection of high-end 1911s...ostensibly for the benefit of another gun-friend of his, who was looking to get in on high-end 1911s, but he'd also been kind enough (or is that evil enough? :smokin to lay them out for me to shoot, too. If memory serves, I got to shoot his TGO-1, Professional, STI, DW Guardian, SACS 9mm and even the infamous "Quackified Glock." So ever since that day, I've been inching closer and closer, getting ready to tip over that line. So, I'm here to learn, and I hope to be a good member of this community.
