I got mine when I was 22. Sold it a few years ago and now on a mission to get another one.

Got my first one when I was 32. I wasn't sold them until I spent some time with an IPSC shooter. Now I wouldn't own anything else.

I'm now 52, bought my first civilian model when I was 23. Carried one in the Army from 1974-78. My current 1911 is the Para-Ordnance P14.45.

I was 22 when I bought my 1911 back in 1971 (Colt Model 70).

I still own it and like to shoot it. Over the years, I've put on a flat main spring housing, a recoil buffer and adjustable sights.

Bought, er, um, traded for my first 1911 in about 1971. Still have it!

I am almost 47. I have 2. I got the first one about 5 years ago.

Shot my first one in Vietnam at age 24 (thing bit my hand bad!), but bought my first 1911 when I was 67. Now I have three; a big 'un (.45 ACP 5"), a little 'un (.45 ACP 3.5"), and a fat 'un (.22TCM/9mm doublestack 5") and I love 'em all!
