1952 - 2006
Actually Chris, I went to the 'dark side' a long time ago. I've had a Sig P-226 9mm for several years, I just prefer a 1911 for carry purposes. (That, just to satisfy Bruce).
I've always believed that the Sig is one of the best platforms for a shooter of average training and skills. The gun is easy to operate, easy to disassemble and clean. Plus their reliability under adverse conditions is almost legend. If someone can afford one, I usually recommend a Sig to all new shooters and new CCW holders looking for a carry weapon.
This endorsement in no way maligns my trust, belief in and steadfastness of the 1911 platform. (again, for Bruce)
I, like Bruce, Bumper, Nighthawk and several others on this forum will probably have a 1911 on my hip as my primary weapon until they bury me with BobFord1. (For those that don't know that is the serial number on my custom RRA 1911 that I had built to my specs.)
I just wanted to add to the arsenal a couple more first class handguns.
Below is a pic of the 226 that I keep for insurance purposes.

I daresay Bob you did mention that before - but s 4 brains here probably forgot! I only think of 1911's when I think of your armament.
