    Got my first 1911

    So I couldn't turn down Bud's deal on the these Para's

    I have not got a chance to shoot it yet, but I can already see why you 1911 guy's love these things.

    Someone really should start a 1911 picture thread.

    Very nice! I'm currently on the wagon. Nothing quite like the heft and feel though. I've managed to be strong for over five years now. Actually, a shotgun is standing in my way for getting a Taurus PT1911 in the next month. I had to weigh the options. Good luck with your new pistol!

    Very nice looking 1911. i'd really like to know how you like the LDA trigger after you shoot it a bit.

    Hey congrats on your new Para. Remember we will need a range report, inquiring minds what to know.

    The member should have had a Chill Pill instead of a V8.
