    As a diehard Buckeye fan I have to also go with the sweater vest. Although there should be a surplus of gator skin goods after January 8th.

    Actually though, I would go with ammo, or mags. If you know what he carries in his 1911's, give him that ammo since carry ammo tends to be more expensive.

    A Gift Certificate To Brownell's would be GREAT!
    YES! They DO have Gift Certificates! You can get one on line or by phone.
    They have tons of high quality 1911 related stuff for sale there and he can pick something out for himself.
    Just Google Search Brownell's...it's brownell's.com

    Yes I have to agree, Wilson mags, Caspian pocketsmith, gift certificate to Brownells would do it for me. and about 3,000 rounds of 45 acp if you wanted to spend the money.

    Wilson mags are always good as is Wilson's versa tool, the 1911 version of the swiss army knife.

    For a Small Gift...

    or part of a gift...

    Get to a book store...magazine section...Look for "The Complete Book of the Model 1911"...it just came out (it's a 'Guns & Ammo magazine)...your friend will appreciate it...

    Could always put the magazine, IN A VEST!.....

    Good Luck...
