    Wow, I must have gotten an awesome deal on my "highly specialized" Springfield GI-45 - 'cause I'm able to 'cock & fire' it with one hand...

    "It is very disturbing," said Councilman Jack Weiss. "If any member of the public is shot with one of these guns or, heaven forbid, a cop is shot with one these guns, what would be the explanation?"
    Halting of a criminal's actions will be the reason, same as via any other method. Heaven forbid a councilman should ever deem a criminal's desire to prey on the innocent is more important than each citizen's right to defend against it, with lethal force if need be. The misguided sense of justice in a sitting city council member is what's so disturbing.

    I propose Kimber do up a special 8-unit run, one for each sitting person on that city council, named "The Councilman's Best Friend." Of course, it would be in honor of integrity ... what every councilman should strive for. Decidedly different then the blather coming from him and others, at this point.

    I would think it is just as disturbing to be killed with a cheap gun!! Or killed by a drunk driver, or stabbed to death by a rusty knife, or beat to death with a baseball bat made in China from Walmart. At least use an American made Louisville Slugger!!!

    Just make sure it doesn't say SIS next to Hank Aaron's autograph.
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    Oh no! Not the highly specialized weapons!!! What if someone were to get shot with one!? How is the .45 slug coming out of the SIS any different than the slug out of, lets say, my S&W 1911? IT'S NOT! What a bunch of uninformed idiots! Yet again, another reason I will NEVER live in CA.

    While not an SIS version, that newspaper article and the idiots it quoted kinda make me smile with pride at the new Kimber that followed me home from a gun show today......

    What a sad, sad shame. Reminds me of when I went back to the city I was born in. The news featured council members being recalled, school administrators being scandalized and a mayor that was trying to bring the city out of financial ruin. Two generations could not turn the city around, and it just seems like personal political agenda's trump progress so often....

    Must be thinking about that hi-cap 8-round magazine -- do they allow those in CommieFornia?

    Just have to upgrade the burglary objective. Why steal a $400 RIA when you can use and lose (into the Pacific) a $1000 "highly specialized" weapon?

    Ridiculous. I can't even read the news anymore, because it's a waste of ...pretty much everything.

    Actually, even longer. The original design was submitted to the military trials for testing in 1906, redesigned and submitted in 1907. So while officially adopted in 1911, the gun itself has been around for at least 101 years......

    It's not going to stop the "100th Anniversary Editions" in 3 years, though.

    I actually held a SIS yesterday at a gun shop. I hadn't seen one before, but after reading this thread, I noticed it right away. I almost purchased it just out of spite.

    It's a very nice gun.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    The first 40 M1911 pistols were assembled on 28 Dec, 1911 for the military.
    The first 43 Government Models (civilian models were not called 1911s) were assembled on 09 Mar, 1912.
