    I was digging around in the safe looking for something when I ran across a forgotten pistol. So I decided to dig out some and click a few pics. I'm including my Star PD in the 1911 category, but take it easy on me.
    To start, is my 1932 mfg Colt Commercial Government model. All original (though I did put on some period correct diamond stocks), all matching. If only it could talk.

    Next is my 1943 Remington Rand with a US&S top end. Period correct, but I need a RR top end and I'll be totally happy with it.

    Next is my mint, unfired Pre-War Colt Ace .22lr, mfg 1937. Now I need a shooter to go along with it.

    Finishing up with the whole clan. 80 Series Gold Cup, 70 Series Gold Cup, 70 Series Jim Clark longslide, 70 Series Jim Hoag custom, Pre 70 Series LW Commander (also Jim Hoag), 80 Series S/S Enhanced Commander done in two tone Gun Kote (fully melted edges), 80 Series S/S Government in .45 with all edges fully melted, 80 Series S/S Government in .38 Super (at the top in middle), 1943 Rem Rand/US&S, Star PD, STI LS9, Randall Commander frame with a Marvel .22lr conversion (also 2 tone, top right), plus the 1932 Govt and the 1937 Ace. I think that is all. I also have several complete top ends for the various Gov't models that have been fitted to individual pistols (Longslide & Gold Cups, etc.) Most of my 1911's wear Navidrex slimline Micarta stocks, if I'm using them for more than plinking.

    That last pick is a damn t-shirt or poster. Very nice.

    I'm still diving in the last reported area of Cane's boating accident. All I've found are some kind of Spanish coins and a cannon or two. I leave them in search of some Colts. Alas, nothing yet....

    Gorgeous collection, I cannot imagine what those 75 year old guns must have seen...

    My lowly little springer GI isnt even worthy of posting here...

    I bought that one back, then I turned around and sold it to some guy named Gary. He's been seen traveling around the country buying up guns from enthusiasts. There is a long saga of Gary and his travels documented in a couple thread over on Jeep Forum.

    I loved my D.W. CBOB. Unfortunately financial circumstances forced me to sell it.

    Those Sig 1911s have never looked right to me. The way they make the slide look like a Sig is just wrong and sick, as is the carry melt that so many use these days. They do shoot damn nice though, don't they?

    That's why everyone has an opinion, and also why there is more than one pistol to choose from. :rolleyes:

    Do those bump pads make much difference? I might have to go get a few.
