Hello all! I am new to this forum, but not new at all to shooting. I've been shooting on a regular basis for about seven years, and just recently (after having been warned for years that it would eventually happen) I caught 1911 fever. Just two days ago I put a Remington R1 on layaway and I cannot wait to get my hands on it and begin what I am sure will be many years of collecting and shooting 1911s. I look forward to learning a lot from all of you fine folks.
