How many 1911's do you have? It seem's they are like Lays potato chips, nobody can just own one :)
I have 3, a SS Colt Defender, SS Colt Commander, and safely tucked away with my Grandfather, his WWII issue Navy Colt 1911.
I had originally planned on just the Defender. But, Nelson Ford is working his magic, adding an Ambi safety (I'm left handed), and doing some other things. So I haven't had a gun to carry in a couple of weeks and yesterday, I finally got my CWP in the mail. I was thinking, "Jeez, a CWP, and no W to C!! So I stopped by the local gun store, and the Commander followed me home. Problem almost solved :)
Now I am thinking, that since both of my Colts are SS and marked with the "100 Years of Service" rollmark, I should get the 5" SS Colt to complete the collection. Unfortunately, the wife doesn't quite see it that way... yet :) However, as with most things in marriage, it's easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission :)
4 if you count the Colt Ace .22.
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

Just one. Plain Jane GI. Closest to the original. Functional. No bells and whistles. I just don't see the need for beavertails, FLG's, and other bells and whistles on a 1911. It takes away the purity of the design IMHO
I could tell ya, but then I'd have ta kill ya.
