My first was a Colt Government Model 1911A1 in 1969. I earned the money washing dishes after school and weekends at a pancake restaurant in Albuquerque, NM. I think it cost about $80 and it was purchased by my mother at a Kmart since I was 16. The gun is sitting in my safe. I've owned a lot of 1911s and other guns over the years but that one I will always keep.
