I don't remember who it was, but a member of www.missouricarry.com had posted a link to this site, so I stopped by.
I mean, a site dedicated to the M1911 has to be worth looking at, right?
Anyhow, I reside in the great state of Missouri, and have been shooting 1911's for a few years now. I am a U.S Navy veteran, currently retired because of a nasty motor-vehicle accident back in 2004.
I bought my first 1911 back in 2005, it was a Kimber Pro-Carry II, and that was followed by a SiG GSR, a Springfield Mil-Spec, 2 Taurus PT1911's, and two S&W1911's. Currently I have only the S&W1911's due to my penchant for trading one for another. Along the way there has been an S&W Sigma .40(my first pistol that I bought when I was stationed out in San Diego), a pair of Springfield Armory XD's(one 4" one 5" both chambered in .45ACP), an EMF Great Western single action revolver in .45 Long Colt( I miss this one), and a SiG P220(this one too...). Also I currently own a SiG P6 9mm, and a Ruger SP101 chambered in .357 mag., and an S&W Model 34 in .22 LR.
I still have a handful of long guns, like my SKS, and an AR-15 project that I am working on(built on a Lauer Custom Weapons lower), though I traded a few including my Benelli shotgun for my Blue SW1911.
I suppose that is all for now,

That is quite the history of trading.

Welcome to the forum. :wavey:
Yea, if I had saved my money, instead of buying all manner of off the shelf guns, I could have bought a Wilson Combat, Nighthawk, or an Ed Brown, or one of the other high-end 1911's. Funny thing about hindsight....
But on the other hand, I do now have extensive knowledge of how lots of guns work.

Thanks a bunch for the warm welcome

John
