Thanks for the grate welcome. after reading more it seems there are quite a few 1911 45 lovers out there. I've always wonted a 1911 like the one I had in the service.
I cud not stand it any longer so yesterday I bout a parkerized Mil-Spec Springfield 1911-A1from a co-worker for a great price at 450.00.
He purchased it in 2005 and said that he has only put 60 rounds threw it. The gun is just like new and fit's my hand well. I've already decided to get the MAX-CON V holster for it as soon as the funds are available.
Well I'm off to the sporting goods store for some ammo and then to the range to put some rounds threw it and see how she shoots.
Well let you all know.
