    Talking 1911 thoughts....

    As stated before, I have been toteing a S&W 642 airwieght since getting my CWP (1 year ago) and we have been getting along just fine. The J-frame snubby is a good combination of stealth, reliablility and firepower. I'd been looking for a 1911 to spend money at the range with and finally "pulled the trigger" on a Taurus PT1911. After picking up and smearing my fingers over every .45 in my dealers case the PT just had something about it that said "take me home".
    Now, for some reason I'm considering this thing for CC and might want to buy another...what's happening to me?
    When in doubt, wup it out....

    The same thing that happens to everybody...resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    My name is Ken and I'm a 1911-aholic. I bought a PT1911SS 2 weeks ago, and I can't leave it alone. I take it out and fondle it. I clean it even when it hasn't been out of the case. I love it and can't wait for our next range trip.

    I love my Glock, Ruger, Kel-Tec, other Taurus, etc, etc. But I am going 1911 crazy. Quick, some one call my sponsor!

    When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

    If you nip this addiction in the bud, before it really has a chance to take hold, you may be ok. The best thing to do is pm me, and I'll provide my address so you can quit cold turkey by mailing the 1911 to me. I am already addicted, so it won't hurt me any.

    Just trying to help. :-)

    The Adiction is a life long thing, there's no known cure. It really is a "'til death do us part" deal.

    If I am not shooting, handling or looking at 1911's I get the shakes and cold sweats. I need a fix, going to the range now. My God I am hooked.

    Love my PT1911. Carried it everyday up until about a month ago got a new holster for the beretta and switched back to it. Still find it to conceal slightly better when in certain clothing.

    The problem I've found is that 1911 addiction also leads to Hi-Power addiction, and vice versa. Egad, I'm a junkie . . .

    I've got a PT 1911 as well. Bought it because,.... well I just wanted one. Fun to shoot, have not carried yet, but have a nice UGB rig for it. It is just a bit more gun, than I find easy to tote around all day. I've got Glocks, a Kahr, Ruger SP101's, S&W J frames and a couple of Keltecs, amongst others for that. Might even pick up a RUGER LCP.
    Enjoy it, you can never have too many guns !!!!!!!!! MAYBE I need a PT 1911 in SS too.

    It's normal. Now if you start hearing voices and wearing aluminum foil hats, start worrying.

    If that happens you had better send me your guns for safe keeping!
