    Whether you can afford it or not, tell us what you really want in your next, or even first 1911 platform and a little about why, as if that's necessary. Being 1911 addicts, we all have the urge. Show your pics too. :thumb:

    I've been lusting after the Ed Brown Molon Labe model for a while. I love the message as well as the profile.

    The "custom sterile" edition of that with a naked slide and no FCS might be mine:

    Got both. The TRP, and I love the TRP, is in NO WAY in the same class as the GC NN.

    Custom 2011 from http://www.ccgunworks.com/ looks like it'll be my next... and my second '1911.' I suppose neither an EMP nor a 2011 really counts.

    I'm gonna build myself two guns here shortly. One will be a classic ball gun, fully polished, for cmp matches. It is going to be built on my frame number CCP 00007.

    The second is going to be an aluminum framed bobtail with a three inch slide in none other than .38 super...just because I can.

    I've been thinking about 4 1911s lately. My next one will be either a Kimber Super Carry Pro, a Springfield TRP, a Les Baer Premier II, or an Ed Brown Kobra Carry. All 4 of these are pretty different, and there are things I like about all of them. In a few years I'm sure I'll have all 4, it's just a question of in what order. I've been wanting a Kobra Carry for a while now, but I haven't been able to find one in person to look at, so I have no idea how it compares to the other 3 on my list.
