    Honestly, never much thought about owning a 1911, but my brother and I are always competing against one another, and after he bought his Remington R2 I tried to outdo him with a Dan Wesson ECP .45
    :)

    I really enjoy it at the range, but not so much IWB. Every time I think I should sell it I worry about magazine capacity laws on the horizon (the ECP uses 8 round mags), so I wind up keeping it. Plus, I have ammo for it, and since it is almost impossible to get 9mm anymore it may be smart to hang onto it for when the SHTF next year.

    :)

    Welcome to the forum from Nevada, we're glad you're here! I'd hang on to that gun, I've sold/traded a bunch and the funny thing is that most that I've let go I regret. Have fun, and again, welcome.

    Welcome to our forum Anthony.
    I believe if you stay with the 45acp as your CCW choice you will not have to worry about
    not having enough small tiny bullits to do the job!

    We like Big Booolets they do a better job!

    Welcome to the forum from Arizona. Owning only one 1911 is beyond comprehension. COLT and the Boys.jpg
