    Went to the gun shop and fell in love...

    With an Ed Brown 1911, the Executive Carry. Pricey... but the gun just feels unbelievable. Feels fantastic in-hand... much more so than any other 1911 I've ever held. Gorgeous!

    Anyone have one and would like to share their thoughts?

    Uh oh, I didn't mean to give the impression I purchased the gun... or that this was my picture! That's from Ed Brown's website, it's just the model that I like.

    I have to save for it. For quite a while, more than likely.

    The thing about 1911's is they all feel so good in your hand.

    So every one you pick up, you gotta have.

    If you can afford an Ed Brown, buy it. It is money in the bank, since they lose little or no value as long as you don't abuse the gun. These are not mass-produced firearms... They are meticulously hand assembled pieces of functional art. Once Ed Brown is no longer able to make any more, they should really go up in value.

    You're in trouble.

    Beautiful pistol. I've held a few custom, massaged Ed Brown specials. Very, very nice. A Combat Commander or CCO type 1911 done right is hard to ignore.
