    First time forum user - just bought my first Colt 1911 MKIV

    A quick note to introduce myself.

    Living in the beautiful province of British Columbia Canada.

    By some standards I'm an old man: to most I'm just old

    Currently own a CZ75 9mm and Defender 12ga
    Love to target shoot - gave up IPSC because of the politics
    Just purchased a Colt MKIV 70 Series Gold cup match 1911 45cal - been looking for a 70 series since I started shooting 10 years ago. Couldn't be happier.

    Looking forward to your comments

    Hand guns are considered restricted weapons in Canada with a minimum barrel length of 105mm. Anything shorter than that is considered a prohibited weapon. No one is allowed to carry hand guns unless they're a leo, conservation officer or sheriff.

    I'd love to carry my weapons in a concealed or unconcealed fashion but I don't think were going to see that happen in Canada.

    Thanks for the welcome

    I did not know you guys could own pistols like a 1911. Far Out Mister. I live just the other side of the border from you maybe 50-60 miles. Welcome to the Forum here. We gots sum real nice folks here. Many years ago I usedta would hit the Soggy Moccasin Rondy up Squamish way every October for 3 days of jocularity, High Octane Canadian brews, all the Pigs in a Blanket I could handle and tradin' with the wild and woolly Hudson Bay crowd!! Woo Hoo! Since I had a pal in the RCMP I could take my muzzle loaders up there no sweat. That was pretty cool. 1991 was the last time I went to Soggy Mocc. Well Sir...

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
