    Into the Abyss

    Having owned many different firearms throughout my life I have found many good attributes on many different weapons. My arsenal has, in the past, consisted of pistols, revolvers, shotguns and rifles, all cherished weapons. Over time, it has decreased now to just 5 or 6 tools I consider essential.

    That has now changed! Although I have owned 1911's in the past, I was never really nuts about them. I have liked the larger capacity of the double stacks. Yesterday at the range I fired a friend's P220. Another shooter let me fire his Kimber. OK, that did it. I have now changed my thinking. I guess I'm getting old, but when I gripped the 1911's a bit of nostalgia must have set in. Oh, I'll keep my XD45, and my LCP, but my carry will be a1911. I have succumbed to the fever. I had forgotten how my old Wilson Combat felt.

    Yes, into the abyss.........

    Glad the old spark ignited fire inside. It is a wonderful thing to grab a pistol and just know it is right.

    Bank account? I'll just have to save up, or maybe I would trade the LCP. The XD would be the truck/nightstand WOC.

    Variety is the spice of life?
    Sounds like you're about to add to that variety (a 1911)...a wise choice.

    As I have said many times before, there are some designs that are timeless and can rarely be improved upon..... The 1911 is one of them.

    Still potentially the best trigger ever designed for a firearm, If old John Moses could see what his designs have evolved into today, I think he would smile.....
