I finally shot the masterpiece that God gifted John Moses Browning with the design of. I LOVE THE 1911! It is the smoothest shooting, and most perfecting feeling handgun I have ever shot. Handsdown. At my local range I rented the only 1911 they had, a Kimber Custom II. I only shot 50 rounds, but they were the greatest 50 rounds to be put through a barrel. My first target was a 7 yards all slow fire, with 3-4 mags at the chest, and 1 mag to the medulla. My second target was at 15 yards, 2-3 mags of slow fire to the chest, and a 7 yard rapid fire to the face.

p.s. It cost me $56 to rent the Kimber, 50 rounds, and 2 targets. WHAT THE F^CK!

JD, we got us another one!

Wait until you shoot a Colt!

There is a reason the 1911 pattern pistol is rapidly approaching 100 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

It only took me 10 years to shoot one after I first been interested in them.

Is $900 good for a USED Colt Gold Cup.

You've now reached handgun nirvana.

Thats why I titled the thread "Enlightenment." Now I just have to come across some coin to buy one so I dont pay 56 bucks just to shoot 50 rounds.

Yup, now it's time to figure out which 1911 you want. Enjoy the search.
