I've been growing more fond of the 1911 myself, the Kimber's are really nice but the one that has my attention the most, is the Springfield Range Officer. Just a sharp looking pistol, but I'm sure with it comes a sharp looking price tag too though.

She has been kicking around wanting a handgun of some sort for months now but didnt have a clue of what she wanted. She saw my 1911 when it was stock GI and then fell in love with it when it came back from the gunsmith after customization. Then out of the blue a couple of weeks ago she says "i know what i want,i want a 1911". She wanted to shoot mine to see how it felt so i loaded up some mags and outside we went. I showed her how to load the mag,rack the slide,and operate the safety,and away she went. She was so excited about shooting it she made me go load more mags so she could shoot again.

You know my wfie goes through cold and hot streaks, one minute she doesnt mind me having guns and stuff, the next she hates guns and me i think it might mostly me. Ha ask her to pick up ammo that would be a cold day in hell, she did once get my cleaning supplys so im wearing on her just a little longer

I think it was Chris Rock that once gave advice on relationships that went something like..."if you're a crackhead, it's best if you're ol' lady is a crackhead too". Same premise here, just a FAR healthier addiction.

You're a lucky, LUCKY man!!! Good on ya' bro...
