LOL - Dual Income No Kids by twin choice my friend. Neither one of us want kids. We spoil the nieces and nephews ( we have 10 between us ) and we want to do a lot more traveling.

This plan insures I don't have some little brat picking my nursing home for me & selling off all my cool stuff to get some stupid Oriental Rug or something.

Too soon, bother. Those cuts run very deep. I can't speak for JD, but sometimes it feels like they are still with me. I can still hear them calling my name.

And you sir, need a wife and one or five kids.

*sniff, sniff* I keep doing it Skull! I keep talking about them in present tense. I can see more therapy is in the immediate future. The pain. THE PAIN!!

I have to agree with your take on the 1911 Skull, you hit the ten ring.

The pointability is just amazing. No grip changing or angle adjustments. The perfect balance and form feels like an extension of my arm. The sights stay steady because of that balance. It is actually easier to stay on sight than my S&W 4" Model 10.


The trigger is crisp and clean. No long pull, no mush-just snap. Being a lefty, I wanted the ambi safety. It's location is just natural and it clicks off just as crisply as the trigger.

I'm hooked, and I don't think I could ever buy anymore poly guns.

Of course, these are my opinions based on what I like and my experience.
Welcome to the club, and to the extreme addiction of owning, shooting, and carrying a 1911. Im sure it wont be your last...

Great to have another in the group.... our newest was manufactured in 1950 and our oldest in 1912. 1911 is what everthing else is compared to.


1911...enough said!

Same here. I do get constant pressure from my mother to give her grandchildren, but so far she is unsuccessful.
