    Those are indeed fine looking. (I like the nickel Gold Cup, too.)

    Only thing is, for me, I've never fired a 1911, and thus have never come to trust them. The whole cocked-and-locked thing really creeps me out...

    I favor a Glock -- sorry!

    1911s and Glocks

    There is certainly nothing wrong with a Glock, and the simplicity and reliability of Glocks are strong selling points. I have a couple of Glocks and have used them for carry and home defense.

    But you should really give 1911s a try, and might find some things you like about them. They can be quite reliable and accurate in most cases. I'll grant you that cocked and locked seems strange compared to many other guns, but you generally have a thumb safety, a grip safety and perhaps a hammer drop safety to protect you from accident, as well as your own training and trigger finger control. Once you become used to cocked and locked it seems quite natural.

    Just remember that pistol that everyone packs without a exposed hammer is cocked also, and some don't have as many safeties as a 1911. Pull the trigger on that Glock is goes boom.

    Delta force, put those guns in some diffused sunshine, like coming through a window on a cloudy day, then take a picture of them with the camera flash off. Their beauty will come through even more. :)

    Let's all post our "workhorse" firearms. I carry this every day, everywhere:



    Most modern digital cameras have the two settings you need for good gun pics. My sony has a button to turn off the flash (lightning bolt with a line through it), and a button for close ups (pic of a flower). Read your manual, you'd be surprised how much better the pic is without the flash. Oh, and you'll need a tripod or steady surface for the non-flash pics...otherwise you'll see blurring.

    If you're having trouble, post your camera type and I'll figure it out for ya.

    I felt the same way about 1911's until I tried one......
