I've seen a defender, but never fired one.
Welcome aboard from another 1911 "freak". Maybe these other folks will finally see the light one day!

Welcome. Nice weapon, but...
Although it's the right color, it's a little skinny and the edges are a little to roundy. Is it really all metal? lol

Nice Colt, however you may want to consider engaging the safety when the hammer is cocked.....

You should have aquired a Glock. Just kidding, that is a nice weapon. Welcome from NY.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
Welcome! Always good to see another 1911 guy on the board. Great choice in a carry weapon. If it was good enough for Alvin York, it's good enough for me!

All I ever carry is a 1911 Colt Commander or Govt. Sometimes a Springfield Champion. 45 or 38 Super. Guess I'm a 1911 freak. Smokeless
stoneypete, a friend of mine has one and I liked it when I shot it. This is my small 1911A1 style pistol by Kimber. I paid $500 for it and it will shoot with full sized 1911s. I hope you enjoy your 1991A1 as I enjoy my Kimber. Regards, Richard
