The 1911A1... Hard to compare to it
I've been carrying my Springfield XD90 lately, and haven't touched a 1911 for some time. I broke out my fave carry, Kimber Ultra CDP II, and man, do I miss how easy it is to conceal it. I'm itching to fire it tomorrow.
Any other 1911 owners get this way? There's just something about the 1911 and the .45 that just makes you go whoa mutherfucker when you shoot it.

I own a Colt 1911A, and one of the wonderful things about it is how easy it is to accessorize. For example I'm a lefty, and it only is sold with a right handed safety. Well one trip through a gun catalogue later, I found an amidextous(sp) safety for about $20 which was easily installed. The design though almost 100 years old has the tolerance to permit such modifications, which makes it a great gun.

I have a Springfield Armory 1911. Olive drab slide and frame (SA's armory kote) with black hardware and custom stocks from Rob Simonich.
Shoots like a DREAM

Well, there's a saying:
But . .. in this case you only get to pick one and it is "good."

I get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I fire my 1911, I love it. It is alot to conceal, but once unconcealed it makes a person think.
As soon as my new digital camera gets here from ebay, I'll post pics, cuz its just gorgeous.
Its a Colt, Gold Cup National Match Series 80 in the Ultimate Bright stainless.
Yeah its big, beautiful, loud and expensive. Gotta love it!

A 1911 Colt Commander was the first gun I ever owned. I got three of'em now. The Colt, a Para SSP and the Crown Jewel of my collection:
From the manufacturers website:
"The Nemesis pistol is the tool of the serious shooter, Law Enforcement or Military professional. The Nemesis takes the handgun out of the realm of a strictly defensive weapon to provide offensive capabilities using lights, lasers and the latest LEDís. This pistol frame is front heavy! The full length dust cover and slab-sided slide give the shooter an un-paralleled reduction in muzzle flip and felt recoil. The Nemesis was built using only the best materials and closest tolerances to provide the most reliable and accurate side arm. For starters, this pistol has a course, 20LPI front strap checkering and main spring housing for those times when adrenalin fires or the weather is uncooperative. A serious fighting tool, this pistol features the finest gun parts and sports a Wilson Combat fire control system and sights. The finish is Birdsong Black-T, the choice of the elite teams of the United States Government. . The Nemesis is a serious fighting tool and ultimate side-arm for those professionals who answer the call of 911 and whose lives are on the line 24/7. We at Cerberus Tactical know you deserve the best and have produced in the Nemesis, as in its name sake, the ultimate fighting tool for law and order.

You realize that by showing Anthony a picture of it, your only feeding his gun buying habit :)
In all seriousness will you be bringing one of them overseas with you or using the barretta?
