    Got me a new Colt. Ain't she sweet?

    Was threatening to do this, and so I did. I do prefer all iron, so a Combat Commander was in order.

    And with the Kimber. Nice looking pair, I'd say.

    But if it's a 1911, you really need Sparks leather to make it real.

    The SSII is really for a Government, but it'll do for glory pictures until I get the right size from the boys in Idaho. Six months.........Will have to live with a tan SSII from Brownells until the order shows up.

    I'm so ashamed.....Sorry Joe, sorry Dianne

    You will have to update me on how it shoots compared to the Kimber. I have several Kimbers and I want to add a Colt 1911 just have not found the right one yet.

    Awfully nice! I like how Colt has stepped up to an aluminum trigger and a modest beavertail, along with a few less-obvious touches. My next 1911 will be an all-steel Commander...

    She is beautiful. Colt sure does have a strange selection of grip safety's, it seems like they put something different on each gun.

    Awesome! I have the LW XSE. Did that duck butt beaver tail come stock? Mine has the upswept. I prefer that look, but again yours is beautiful.

    Mine rides a Sparks VMII, and as you stated, they are a match made in heaven. Way better than all your sigs huh?

    Excellent looking guns! And leather to put them in. You sir have excellent taste, expensive, but excellent nonetheless.
    I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Very nice indeed! Have a Kiimber that is very close to that. Be curious how you feel the two compare....
