    The one on top is a small one and the one on the bottom is a big one.

    1911s are communal critters and dislike being alone; one must always have more than one.

    I've been eyeing that TCM 22 myself. I've been trying to make do by sticking to Colts and getting my Remington R1 race gun ready for a re-blue.
    But that stuff doesn't last forever...

    Nice pair.

    Obviously there are things in nature that multiply at an alarming rate that if not stopped, could overtake the world. Think how terrible the world would be if rabbits were left unchecked, or mice, or Glocks, or 1911's. The world can not handle that many of anything, even if it is a good thing in moderation. (except of course Beretta's )

    All that aside, they do like nice, and I am sure they are a dream to shoot

    Do not let them guns meet up. They multiply rapidly. I had one gun back in the late 50's. Bought another and now the family is so large, I keep having to buy more safes. Those nice guns get with the pretty ones and before long, another gun comes along.

    They also eat up ammo. Keep the ammo away from all guns.
