So it begins..
When i bought my kimber i justified the Price buy telling myself it was going to be the only 1911 i would own. Funny huh. Will i pick up my second one today and just wanted some one to say it was OK. That there are worse addictions out there. What i am afraid of is something i read here and i wish i could quote the person that said it but I'm but I'm not sure who is was. Any ways they said never put two 1911's in a safe because they will multiply.

OK. It's OK. My Glocks breed too. They're up to three. Beretta's do that also. No experience with 1911's or Kimbers, but I've heard they like cats.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

There is no "one" 1911
You can't have just one 1911, just like you can't have just one screwdriver. Just consider all the variety:
1. Barrel lengths 3,4 and 5 inches.
2. Stainless, blued and blackened.
3. Steel, aluminum and polymer frame.
4. Colt, Springfield, Kimber, S&W, Sig, STI, Wilson.
5. .45 ACP, 9mm, 10mm, .38 Super.
And the list goes on...

1911s, AR-15s, Colt Revolvers . . . they just keep multiplying, which of course leads to the ancillary consequence of gun leather and other gear reproducing as well. Sort of a symbiotic relationship, it seems.
It also appears to be an exponential progression. One is likely to turn into two, two to four, and so on and so on.
A remedy? Not bloody likely! One can only revel in the malady . . .

The good news is that unlike most addictions and disorders our malady truly is victimless! Well, not counting finances.......
Besides it helps so many other businesses and craftsmen!
