heres some 1911 pics. Bill was asking about my avatar.its a springfield G.I. model that i had Brad Rogers do a rebuild on. kart barrel, stainless guide rod. wilson combat night sites, springs. extended ejector, dont know the brand of the beaver tail or hammer or trigger. he told me but i cant remember. he did all the tooling, and shaved down the main spring housing, flared the mag well, and polished the feed ramp, and the finish is KG gun Kote, O.D., flat black.

the knife pics were done by Mr. Hoffman.

Some may laugh at the idea of carrying a man purse, but there's just something to say about a bag you can carry your pistol, three back up mags, 6 AR mags, a radio, and plenty of room for other odds and ends.

Every warm blooded American should own at least one 1911.

Amen to that!

I love mine (just the one :)), even though compared to the others here it's completely lame. It's the most accurate pistol I own and I enjoy shooting it more than any weapon I've ever owned. Well, next to my old 45-70 single shot rifle I guess. I normally sleep with it under my pillow, but I sent it home with my nephew to get cleaned a while back, and I think girls intervened. :) At least, I don't have it back yet. I need to go collect that bad boy.

Beautiful pistols gents! Thanks for making my day.

Tracy, go get yourself a 1911 and end the pain!

Here is mine, a Kimber. It's about as basic a Kimber as they made. I used it when I was shooting NRA Bullseye and had a red dot sight on a clamp mount. That's what rubbed the blueing on the frame. Sure is a good shooter.

Boss, are you having nightmares or fantasies? Either way, you really need a 1911. I had a spare I had picked up at a show a few months ago but ended up flipping it for a nice little profit. I'm toying with the idea of having my ProCarry customized or buying another. I guess if I send mine to be customized, I'll have to buy a back up to have while she's gone.

Patrick

Here's my Kimber Pro Carry with alloy frame, stainless slide, Pachmar grip and adjustable rear sight. It is so sweet to shoot. Don't even have to aim, it knows what to hit. Kinda like driving a Mercedes. Oh yeah...SureFire E2D flashlight and probably the first knife I've posted. Tactical style with homemade micarta, a little filework and skullcrusher butt end. Believe I gotta shoot something soon.2guns

http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i115/VaughnT/triggers/DSC00349.jpg

I used this pistol for several years while doing the security thing and have to say that it was the best investment I could have made. The VZ Gator Grips are the only grips I'll tote on a 1911 because they look good and work better than anything I've ever seen.

Remember, there is no sense in having a box-stock pistol when you can have a custom iron for twice the price. It just ain't logical! :cool:

Still cool, though. I've always regretted not getting a Colt Pony or Mustang.

IMO, the best pocket pistol would be a scaled-down 1911 in 9mm Parabellum, holding 10+ rounds, with tritium up front and a grip long enough that my pinky doesn't dangle.

It's even a little smaller than the Pony or Mustang. It's a "three-fingered" grip for sure.

Walther has a small single stack 10 round 9mm but it doesn't have the 1911 frame.

I can't carry the full sized .45 all of the time. Nor can I carry the Glock 19 or 23 when I want at times....so this little .380 will do job when dress dictates.

I've heard people poo-poo the .380 but having been a Flight Nurse/Paramedic (and running a crime scene cleanup service) I've had multiple opportunities to see the "end results". Don't hesitate on the .380 to take care of you when things get tight. You're just gonna have to trust me on that.

Used to have a KelTec P3AT, a two-finger gun if ever there was, but could never find any .380 practice ammo that was reliable. The better grades of fighting ammo did alright, but nothing to write home about, but the practice stuff was garbage.

Nice score, Boss. I hadn't ever heard of Bud's Gun Shop until you posted the first pic. It's only 75 miles from here in Lexington. Next trip to the VA hospital and I'm spending an afternoon at Bud's. What great prices and inventory!!!!! And you can try before buying at their 28 lane indoor range.

I am going to go out in the back yard and blast a few cans this weekend. That should give the neighbors and the golfers something to think about...

So, how does it feel to be a member of "The Man Club", Boss? I may have to break down and get me one of those some day. I almost bought one back in '05/'06 when they forst hit the market. Wish I had, the price was ALOT better back then before all of the great reviews were written.

I am going to have to make my own sheath for it. There isn't many of them out there for this model.

Wish I would have had the money today. I came across a really sweet Colt Super 38 at a local show. :(. I did get the gentleman's contact info in the event I can scrape up the cash.
