    Just saw the latest isssue of Guns & Ammo. There were 6 adds for 1911s in this issue and I thought that was a good thing. These included Auto Ordnance, Springfield, Nighthawk, Dan Wesson, Kimber and Wilson. If these companies are willing to spend advertising money like this I hope it means there is some demand. Made me feel warm and fuzzy as I own 1911s from three of these companies.

    Pretty much the same here: 1911s from 3 of those companies currently in the house and used to have one from a 4th. It's a great time to be a 1911 addict. We're almost spoiled for choices.

    There are lots of companies turning out 1911s, so advertising is a must. I consider this a good thing.

    A Trolling statement. What handgun does a better job of pushing a bullet out of a barrel than a 1911?

    Some of us feel that the 1911 is not antiquated . It's a design that was so far ahead of it's time in 1911 that it withstood the test of time . What is better or antiquated is purely subjective . Being around 108 years doesn't make it antiquated , in my mind it proves it's greatness .

    If I couldn't own a 1911 I'd probably have a G19 and a G43 and that would be it. Damn, that'd be a cheap hobby :):)

    The 1911 is beautiful, has soul and it is the most amazing weapon to just sit and admire or send a few hundred rounds downrange, the plastic striker fire pistol is just a gun.

    My 1911s are all range guns, hence they are Government sized and all steel. For what I want out of target shooting there isn’t a better pistol.
    I could see a 2011 becoming my house gun.

    Do you go on Corvette forums and tell them pushrods are antiquated too?
