I use the word "collection" somewhat in jest; this makes my second 1911. I also have a Colt that was made in the 50s which belonged to my grandfather. I'm no judge of 1911's, but the 1911R1 (standard and variations) is selling like crazy. There are many many more models of the R1 coming out soon. I'm more of a polymer pistol kinda guy. This is a pretty slick, tight gun with a good feeling trigger. I feel I am qualified to say that much ;\)

Listen Infoman, I read this post just in time to save you from an awful fate. You see, these 1911 things are addictive. Yep. Just like those black plastic rifles that look like M-16's. Pretty soon, you'll be spending hours and hours at the range, blasting away, forgetting anniversaries, birthdays, even Valentines Day. Hundreds of dollars, maybe thousands, in ammo up in smoke. You'll have to undergo therapy. But I have a solution. Pack that thing up and I'll slide by and take it away to someplace safe where it won't be able to tempt you to go to the range instead of to work. I know, I know, its a big sacrifice on my part, but I know I am up for it.

Sure is a nice looking 1911. Sighhhhhhhhhhh. Congratulations.

Well, you see, it's not that simple. There IS a range at work, two in fact. I can't get away... And it's much worse than pistols. I'm hot and heavy into 3 gun competition. So I've got a couple of those evil black rifles, too. And then there's skeet shooting and sporting clays. Let's not go there.

Sigh...

Don't hurt yourself Infoman. That is one sweet 1911. I had my father-in-law's (Air Force) Colt 1911 Commander service pistol customized for my youngest son who is an (Army) Infantry Company Commander and it is one sweet shooter. I want a Remington Full Size 1911 for my own collection. Sweet gun.

I'm not much of a 1911 fan but that is a nice looking pistol for sure.

Okay Infoman, my attempt failed, but because of you I have started a small cookie jar bank with a gummy label that says REM 1911.

Jeez, now I'll need a Dillon. I bet I've looked at that picture ten times. You know, we might be related, I got kin up Louisville way, grew up in Charlestown IN...I once caught a catfish and 4 black crappie at some big lake in KY, neighbor guy took me. You think? I just stuffed another 20 in that jar.
