    I own TWO Colts,both purchased new in the mid 80's, that have visited some famous shops through the years...but TODAY'S Pony Guns come from the factory ready for HP's and with only the bells and whistles you'll really need!

    I know how you feel. The addiction is swift. I really like my Colt and Kimber. I got them this Spring so I'm anxious to be able to wear heavier clothing so that I can carry both.

    my addiction to 1911 comes and goes. Carry it for a while, and then "Oh Crap is that heavy" and go back to that ugly, light, high capacity polymer gun. Get tired of ugly, light, high capacity polymer gun.

    ...and repeat.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    I share you "junkiness." I'm always itching for one more, now I'm thinking Super 38. Nothing wrong with that Citadel, glad you like it.

    Yep, but then I got an alloy framed Kimber and now I carry it and say "wow, that is as light as my M&P".

    I've got a SIG 1911, Springfield GI, and Colt Government Model. Even though the SIG is a warranty replacement for a total lemon GSR I bought, and I don't like it that much...I still haven't been able to bring myself to dump it. The other two are just awesome, and they're not going anywhere.

    Does the colt compact .45 have a short trigger pull?
