Default 1st 1911

Just bought myself a Springfield Range Officer for Christmas!! Been wanting a 1911 for years and after looking and looking in my price range I decided on Springfield. Fixing to head to the range!

Not only addicting, but it has been said that if you put two 1911's in a safe, they procreate.
Then, you have to think up names for each.

I hope that's not true because I'm about to put two in our new safe!!!. I'm always welcoming new additions to the family any ways.

Default Great first choice.

Great first 1911. Mine was an Auto Ordnance that has required way too much TLC. Enjoy.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Welcome to the side of all that is right and good. John Browning is smiling down on you from heaven. Several of the other comments are correct regarding the "1911 addiction". It's like legal cocaine.
