    I am officially addicted to the 1911

    After one bad one and two good ones I have become a sucker for the 1911. I wanted a compact and I wanted it to be cheaper than my Kimber. I found this baby for $475 out the door. Added some grips, polished the barrel and trigger, and it is dead nuts reliable so far (300 rounds).

    Anyhow, just wanted to share some gun porn.

    Good luck friend. There are some land mines out there by the name of Les Bear, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Dan Wesson, and Caspian.
    They may delay your retirement

    They can indeed be addictive. I have tried to keep mine to a respectable number, but I almost constantly hear them calling my name. When I'm in one of my LGS's, I always go to the display case that has the 1911's and look them over. Every once in a while I'll ask to look at one up close and personal. One of these days I'll end up taking another one of them home with me. Hey, at least it's a "healthy" addiction.

    I believe that it is though I've personally never had a bad one.

    You're not the only one. These are just a few.

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
