    I just moved to Tennessee from Boston, MA. Longtime 1911 fanatic, but living in MA made it very hard since everything is banned (no Springers, Kimber, Colt, Ed Brown, Wilson, NHC, DW, etc etc. unless you want to pay an insane premium to someone who got it in). Anyhow, glad to be in a free state and feed my addiction.

    I just sold all my non-1911s to keep the collection going. It's cool to be on here - it seems a lot better than most other forums, especially when it comes to mudslinging. I never get attached to any of my guns so I turn my collection over quite frequently so I'm looking forward to wheeling and dealing.

    Welcome sir. So you left commie land and joined the land of the free. THE SOUTH. I hope you didn't bring any of the commie thoughts and ways with you. In the old days we could just tar and feather you, now ............ You don't want to know. LOL Great place here to have a little fun and learn and share. Bring a sense of humor and some thick skin. We'll be watching you Yankee. Enjoy!!!

    It's ok, I can take a good ribbing. And if you mean "commie thoughts" as in I believe in giving away all taxpayers hard earned money to social programs that enable lazy and illegal residents to continue enjoying healthcare, education, and housing, etc on my dime? Then no. Leaving Massachusetts in the rear-view mirror was the best day of my life hah.

    One of my best friends is from Boston. We met in the Marines in 75. We teased either a bunch. When he got out of the corps he came to KY and went to college at Eastern Kentucky University with me. Great guy and I love him and his wife as much as almost anybody. At that time it cost $286 a semester.
