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!

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!
