Just happened across this forum, and it looks like my kind of place. Been around the web since the old ShootersTalk days. I'm 47 and an avid shooter. I'm home-based in Alabama.

Have attached photos of a few of my favorites.

Best,
Jon

... and one that's on the way ... and the finest rifle I have ever owned.

Thank you, sir. Am looking forward to it. Have done some looking through the threads, and I'm surprised to see that I don't know many of the folks here. Am lookin' forward to making some new friends.

Best,
Jon

Hey Jon - big Hi :smile:

Good to have some pics of your artillery up front - we all usually thirst for info on new guy's preferences etc.

Hope you'll enjoy your stay with us.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Yep, I do like 1911s, but I'm not too vehement about it - I do have a wheelgun or two myself. I even think Glocks are great, but I can't seem to get my hand used to the grip angle, and rather than trying to re-train myself to hold the darn things lower, I just stick with what works for me - 1911s, my wonderful, beaten-up old warhorse of a BHP, and the occasional Sig. I still get a little time in with one of the first firearms I ever bought, a Smith Model 586 4". Sorry I had to pull the thumbnail of the finest rifle I ever owned. I had to add it to another thread ...

... and couldn't figure out how to leave the thumbnail here and also use it there. Sorry - low-tech of me, I know.

Best,
Jon

Always good to see some new blood coming aboard, I too have a certain soft spot in my heart for the ole 1911, ‘cept now-a-days it is a Para-Ord P-14. I was seduced by the dark side (Glocks) but find myself returning. Have been looking at the pics of some of your ordnance, must say our tastes are similar. Again welcome and you will find as good a bunch here as anywhere on the web.

Welcome to the group. I have many 1911s, but never carry them. I'm firmly on the darkside, combat tupperware :biggrin:

You'll love the group, many disparate views and ideas. Just watch out for our 1911 primate. He goes Ape :banana: when he discovers a new 1911 lover. Sorry Bruce, I couldn't resist the bad puns :biggrin:

Thats alright, everyone gets there digs in somewhere :smile:

Jon Welcome there is a special place here for us 1911 guys, but if I tell you the password, you musn't tell a sole:27:, and you must swear off Glocks for the rest of your life. Then you can be welcomed:shakehand into the (soon to be dominate) 1911 world :biggrin: .
