Springfield "Loaded" 45 cal w/ Emerson CQC7 blade and Wilson combat mag.
SIG 1911 Nightmare Fastback 45ACP profile.
LOVE that Sig Nightmare Fastback. It was my second choice behind the Colt I bought. Still might have to get one though. It feels really good in the hand. I was very surprised that the Fastback made that much of a difference.
Anyway I'm very jealous.
Llama minimal 1911
Picked this up a few weeks ago
Same ole SIG Scorpion 1911 45 ACP, but I changed up the grips for awhile.
Some of my reserve ammo and hungry 45 autos.
My first 1911
This is a new 01991 Colt .45 cal. I took it out to the range this afternoon for its first 50 rounds. It done great, I think I'm in LOVE!!!!
I like a pretty gun, but I also like one I can carry and shoot without obsessing over a scratch or dent. I have carried and shot this one since 1995. It has functioned flawlessly the whole time.
It's nice to have an EDC that you can depend on and not let you down when it really counts. The only time I carry my SIG Scorpion anymore is when I'm at the range. My EDC (XDM 45) is reliable and holds 13 plus 1 rounds. I carry one extra mag also. Occasionally, I'll carry my Ruger SP101 .357 mag. Also very reliable and conceals well.
S&W 1911CT .45 Auto E Series Crimson Trace Laser.
Hey everyone it's been a long time since I have been thumbing through the forums here. But here is my current 1911 set up. It's a commander ATI GI with some marching done to the slide. Custom ultra flat blue duracoat. The feed ramp has been polished and the chamber has had some work done to it. It used to not like to feed Hp rounds. It also has the GI staked in front sight removed and a dove tail cut with fiber optic sights. All in all a good gun. The only complaint I have is it is not reliable unless you sick high dollar mags into it. Anyway good to be back
Here are a few of mine. I'm sure I've posted a few of them before.
My EDC Sig, and the most accurate handgun I.ve ever shot. my SA RO.
Can you all remember the hoopla and angst back in the 70s over having state and local depts go to 1911 style and caliber, (45acp) pistols from the venerable old S&W mod 10s that nearly everyone with a badge carried at the time.
THEN in the 80s of all agencies the fumblebumbleinstitute decided not only would they go 1911 but they were by golly going to carry real power the delta elite 10mm. They quickly discovered their smarmy, (wimpy) lil agents couldn’t handle them. (They said they were too uncomfortable for their appropriate dress) LOL. Then went to glock.
So many other depts and agencies followed suit.
But ALAS the 1911 frames and the gr8 ole 45 hung on here and there especially with those who allowed their officers to choose their firearm of choice.
Then others as agencies began allowing and look around now at the numbers (TEXAS RANGERS) who have finally realized that the 1911 style frame is STILL the #1 platform for quickest and most accurate shots on target. There are more choices for Frame size in several calibers that can easily match ANY hand, frame size male and female.
That gr8 browning design is not only still with us but still growing in popularity for any number of reasons.
So getting to see these remarkable, beautiful, tools and to know the never ending pleasure they bring every time I pick it up or strap it on continues for me to be a never ending source of pride and pleasure.
Keep the pics and stories coming in, I never tire of seeing and reading about a true article of beauty and genius.

All these pics make me drool on my keyboard, maybe some day in the future I'll get a 1911, I've shot them in years past, they are great. Maybe I'll pull my XDm .40 out of storage and do a trade.
