Always have clean socks.
1911s tend to be EXTREMELY addictive. Don't be surprised if you end up with two or three more 1911s in your collection.
I just bought my first (Remington 1911R1) a few months ago, and I am hooked. I already want another in 460 Rowland or 400 CorBon. Maybe one in 9mm or 38 Super too. The heck with it, I want them all.
I am really thinking about a Dan Wesson 38 super. I am told it is the 9mm for grownups.
Les Baher makes one as well, I just need the $.
Be careful! I found that after I got into 1911's, my polymer pistols felt less appealing to shoot and started to get neglected.
