    Hi guys

    Small intro from me. I work at a gun range down here in Texas and I luckily get to be around firearms a good amount. I have gotten to shoot a lot of guns because of work and I think it is about time to get my own 1911. They just shoot s nice!

    Welcome! The hard part is buying your first semi or full custom. WTF? $3K+ for a handgun! No freaking way, I said a few years ago...

    I am not addicted, I mean, I can quit any time I want. :smile2:
