How Many 1911s Do You Have?

This is a discussion on How Many 1911s Do You Have? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I don't have more than one of anything. Variety is the spice of life. Why would you want a safe full of the same things?...

    Many years ago I lost all of mine in a boating accident on the Ohio River.

    Safe shooting,

    Would it be entirely too asinine if I said "not enough"?

    Three all .45s Just ordered a Colt Gold Cup .22. Will that count? Also growing very fond of my Browning Hi-Power & that just almost counts as a 1911.....

    None. Due to my current economic situation (for past several years) I don't see one my immediate future. Every time I think about getting one, I realize I could get 2 or 3 other good quality guns for the same cost. I drool over Dan Wesson's, if I had the means that's what I would be considering.

    deadguy, why did you sell you VBOB?

    Only one now. A Dan Wesson Pointman prototype.

    I thought about adding another one recently but decided against it due to the fact that they require lots of maintenance to keep clean and sweat/gunk/rust free here in Texas if you carry them regularly. As much as I hate to admit it now, polymer and stainless have become my friends over the past 5 to 8 years.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I only have two. One is an RIA Twotone Tactical and the other is a Taurus PT1911. I know it doesn't count (not a real 1911) but I shoot my Chiappa 1911-22 more than any other gun I own. It's a cheap date.
