I found your forum while surfing the net looking for something 1911. Seems like a really nice place where there is a sense of humor and a good time. I belong to some forums (un-named) where jumping on folks seems to be more important than discussing 1911's. I just retired in February and now have plenty of the to shoot and build. I just acquired my first Baer which I haven't received yet and I'm building my first 1911 using s CS frame and slide with bullet proof parts from Wilson. I'll post pictures when I get my Baer. Be gentle this is my first time!! Bill PS: I guess I forgot to say I'm in the "bluegrass state" Kentucky.
