I have 5 pistols, and my first 1911 is on it's way. Talk about excited.

I don't own one. Perhaps someday. But if I never do, oh well. There are many other handgun platforms out there that I like a lot more.

20 years ago I bought a used Llama 1911 clone. I LOVED that thing. I paid $250 for it. I was really impressed. it almost never jambed, and accuracy was decent. Hard times forced me to sell it for $350 about 15 years ago. I have not owned another 1911, but oddly enough, I'm shopping.......

I currently do not. I did own a Wilson KZ-45 that I regret selling. Other than a range gun, the traditional 1911's serve absolutely no purpose for me. I did however, just order a Nighthawk Talon FLX in 9mm.

Don't have one yet, thinking to get a Kimber, or a Ruger (Depends on the waiting list)

I only have one, but it's a dandy! The 1911 is an American icon, a symbol, or standard of our country, and the men who made it great in the last century.........

You just have to have one to understand how this pistol fits the American path to greatness. When you have it in your hands and shoot it.....then......you might understand!

I have 2 M1911's and I would say get either an RIA or an Auto-Ordanance the Auto's are 100% American made.

The Ruger is an outstanding value, it's too bad they aren't more available.

I'm a normal heterosexual American male, so of course I own a 1911.

For actual carry and use I prefer my Glock G36 at least 10 to 1, but I own a nice basic Srpingfield 1911 and a Springfield Compact.

Picked up my first 1911 a year ago. Had it customized to how I wanted it and never thought of looking back.

If, RIA is Rock Island Arsenal, mine was made in the Philippines.

Yer not gonna like it, Bac. It's plastic, and high-capicity. It's like the trans-gender, of 1911's. It's sexy up top, but once you look down, you might be a bit turned off.

No adam's apple or man hands, though. Promise! Just kinda ugly in the face.

Generally speaking, if you are going to collect anything, it should be something that interests you.
With all of the years (and varieties) that guns have been produced, you could easily have an amazing collection without a 1911 in it. For that matter, unless you are going vintage, how many truly collectable new 1911's are out there? Customs come and go.
My handguns are all relatively modern, and I enjoy shooting 1911's. That said, I don't think I would be missing anything if I didn't have one. There are lots of great choices these days.

If you have never had a 1911 with some sort of reliability issue you have been a very lucky man. Go play the lottery.

That's good enough for me.
I agree about the capacity thing. It never bothered me, especially if I have an extra mag on me.
When/if the gen 4 36 comes out it will get serious consideration from me.

That's the post that I read. You're better than me. I couldn't tell it meant, only Auto Ordinance. Another internet rumor attempted.

I have 12 guns at last count and none is a 1911. My old roomate owned one years ago (Norinco I think?) and I shot it several times, but never came to feel comfortable with it. I don't like the grip angle or how high the bore axis is. The cost is hard for me to justify, too, when I can buy 2 or 3 guns I actually like for the price of a middling 1911.

Edit: I went to the gun store last December with the express purpose of buying one of the Rock River versions, but as soon as I handled it I decided against it again. Just not my cup of tea.
