    Nice! Looks a lot like a Kimber TLE II. I think the 1911 is probably the sexiest handgun in the world.

    Honestly? Meh. Hate the black blackstrap. Good price, but look at a Bauer or Brown and tell me they don't look much sexier.

    Just my thoughts.

    It certainly does look like a Kimber.

    While pretty, no where near as pretty as this.

    Nice. But I'll pass as I have just ordered a Ruger SR1911CMD. It has a few more black parts and i think that makes it look better. But on the other hand looks are just looks. How it shoots and its reliability is what will make it or break it.

    That's a very pretty gun, looks great. I love the 1911's, have two of them myself, and certainly lust after more.

    I do appreciate the beauty of a gun like an Ed Brown custom, and when you research the details it's obvious to see why they're worth so much. But I vacillate between beauty and function, and while beauty is always appreciated, function always wins. It just doesn't seem practical to me to spend $3500 on a gun when I can get a very nice, very well-built gun from a very reputable manufacturer for $800. I can buy a lot of bullets for $2700.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    It is until you see a PPK ;) Then a host of wheel guns and then the 1911 :P

    Of course honorable men can differ :)
