    They realize that a nice 1911 is a good weapon for personal protection. They feel they can buy one that will last beyond their lifetime. My best one is here:

    all i can say is, yes, the nickle plated or satin stainless steel, are pretty. i do like them.

    but i also do not buy trailer or safe queens.

    anything i buy, i use for it's intents.

    so most of if not all of my guns are black (well blued)

    The OP did not define "best", so I will post the one of eleven 1911s that I currently carry the most: an ACW Classic Carry (Commander) in .45ACP.

    There is not one thing that I would change about this Nighthawk.

    **Drax laughing**
    "Post my best?" best is just too subjective...
    Do you mean "prettiest?" Do you mean "best shooter?" Do you mean "most expensive?" or even the one that brings the most joy to me?
    I would be posting different pics for all those.
    So...... you get the one that is best at bringing a laughter of humor from me. The ZoidianJemColt.

    Gotta side with @TheCollector. Can't come up with a "best". Maybe I could throw out some "good, gooder, and goodest", but that might change daily. For me, it's kind like "if you can't be with the girl (or gun) you love, love the girl (or gun) your with".
    @GA 1911, however, based on your Avatar, we can probably agree on cars!

    @salelcid , I'd say you have a nice sampling of "goodest"!
