    Good morning! Thanks for allowing me to join.

    Just a "getting older-by-the-minute" semi-retired LEO. Had 30 years full time, now doing a part-time gig in a small town (fun/gun money and my son is a college freshman :veryhappy ) Love my 1911's and carry one everyday, on and off duty. I am also a fan of S&W wheelguns (m642 is my BUG) I like what I've seen here and thanks a bunch for letting me drop in.

    Welcome, I believe you may find one or 2 1911 fans here.

    Hey Witherspoon - welcome aboard

    It is good to have a healthy LE membership, whether full-time, part-time or retired. IMO it helps add a very valuable perspective. Hope we'll see your input.

    Thumbs up Law Enforcement & The 1911

    I think we now have 2 of our Local LEOs that carry the Colt .45 1911 pattern pistolas. Just FYI
