I was looking up more information on my Colt 01918 Reproduction WWI .45 ACP Pistol on a the sites and found responses in this forum to the Carbonia Blue and the Black Oxide finish. The 01911 and the 01918 received high marks and I've been shooting my own 01918 since 2008 feeling it is the best 1911 I've ever owned. I like the spurred wide hammer, lack of flared lowered ejection port, lack of trigger safety, lack of beavertail extension, lack of whistles and bells that came after the original models including the shortened trigger.
I'd like to show a picture of it:
I not only like the 1911 but I've always liked the SIG P210 so when the Legend came out from SIG SAUER Germany I got one recently:
I've been retired from the US Army since 2007.
I favor concealed handguns in the Walther PP, PPK, or PPK/S design in caliber .32 auto.
Thanks for having me here!

Welcome Cuz! The 1911 is okay but that SIG 210 is a peach! The last one I shot felt like the trigger was pulled by mind control!

Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
