    Springfields make great 1911's

    Hey everyone I thought it might be fun to share a little Springfield love for Easter. I am sure at some point this has been done but never hurts to do it again. I see all the time people referring to their Springfield 1911's in both 9mm and 45 ACP. How about we show a few off and admire together. Here's to your special 1911 or 1911's.
    Thanks for posting some pictures. I look forward to seeing what we have. Here are my favorite 3. V-16 ported long slide. an EMP 9mm. Trophy match 45

    Here is my "new to me" SA 1911 GI model. Shot it twice this weekend, fairly accurate and I am sure it will get more accurate with some more trigger time!.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
