    Have no Idea how I came across this site, where have you been hiding? Old grumpy retired fart living in the land of the free for right now, Arizona! Seems here lately were getting a bit more lib. Guess you know now where my political alliance stands.
    Currently have a couple of Colts, series 70 and an 80, Kimber Warrior, and I ventured in to the dark world of ATI. the GI model. Good retirement gun as you will need the extra time to fine tune it!
    Looking forward to some fresh opinions and idle banter

    Hi and welcome to our forum from Northern Italy.

    Collectible "plain-jane M1911s GI", full size "SIG Sauers" and "CZ" sport pistols have always been among my favourite guns.
    For the range I have mainly owned high end 1911s, CZs, and SIG Sauers, the latter are great pistols especially older German-proofed ones, actually the P226 to me is probably one of the most reliable pistols that I have owned in 39 years of shooting handguns.
    I collected for years until I realized that an ever-taller pile of unneeded guns made my life no happier, so I decided to take a hiatus from it, I thinned my collection and decided to enjoy more what I had. So, I'm going to keep only my small collection of M1911s, while I'll reserve mainly the "P226s" and the "Shadow 2" for the range.
    After about 39 years of guns-ownership and reloading my own ammunition, I still love shooting at the range every week.

    JMO this is one of the best gun forums among the several I belong to, to me it's quite a learning experience, I hope you'll enjoy your time here. Life is good.
