Mostly (modified) Colts for me. But also a Randall, STI, and Remington Rand. Shot my first 1911 when I was 12, and have loved them ever since.
My Colt Ace is a 1937 mfg, and is unfired and mint. My 70 Series Colt Gold Cup has the shortest trigger reset of any gun I've ever tried. My 70 Series Jim Clark longslide has an original S&W MTU bbl. I've been told S&W made 100 of these bbls for the Army Marksmanship Training Unit, and most were shot out by the end of the 1970's.
It (usually) takes a bit of work to make most 1911's truly reliable (always get that plunger tube brazed on), but the work is easy and the guns are worth the effort. The 1911 is possibly the best "home tinkerer" pistol available. They can be detail stripped in about 20 seconds, and reassembled in not much more.
I would not hesitate to carry any of mine to defend my life, or the life of another.

I've got multiple branch offices in the Fusion, Dan Wesson, Kimber, and Taurus territories. Used to have offices in the Colt territory, but had to close them.

Dammit Rock, we just wanted to know if you had a 1911 in this thread, not throw up a picture of all your kids and make the rest of us feel all inadequate and jealous and chit! You do have some nice looking kids there, must get their looks from their momma's side of the family.

Kimber and Taurus, but I'm a Colt and/or Nighthawk wannabe as soon as I find one or the other.
