    For all of my Mississippi folks, let me introduce myself. My name is Steve Westbrook. I live in Starkville and I am a 30 year law enforcement veteran. Also a U.S. Army veteran (Military Police). I am an NRA certified Law enforcement instructor for handgun, shotgun, patrol rifle, submachine gun, and precision rifle. I am also NRA certified for handgun, shotgun and rifle civilian classes. I do the state Enhanced Carry course as well as other civilian classes. We can put together a class on anything from basic techniques to some pretty high speed/low drag stuff. Safety is always our first consideration. Anyway, enough advertisements...
    My first love is Colt 1911s 1982 and back. The 80 series guns kind of turned me off of the newer stuff. Absolutely nothing wrong with them I guess, but an old true Master Pistolsmith named Forrest Davis (R.I.P.) didn't like them, so I didn't figure I should either. I learned 90% of what I know about 1911s from Mr. Forrest. I have probably owned over 100 different 1911s through the years and fired 10's of thousands of rounds through them. That being said, I will not say that I'm an expert on the gun because every time I start thinking I know everything life shows me something new. If you think I can help you in any way feel free to holler at me...

    NM Buzz, I've never been qualified to do half the stuff I've managed to pull off, much less over-qualified... A little desire to succeed and a lot of BS have served me pretty well...

    Did you know that you cannot buy a cup of hot coffee in Hot Coffee, MS? At least the last time I rode through on my motorcycle I couldn't find a place...

    You can't buy hot coffee in Hot Coffee but just about anywhere you stop they will gladly give you a cup. You can journey just up the road to Soso, Ms and get all the hot coffee you want!
