    I've gone back and forth on that - I will likely only buy 1911s in the future. But there are a few handguns I own that are not 1911s that I would never sell

    Gotta' have some good wheelguns. Maybe a Glock or two. And a Ruger 22 for the breakin' in the newbies (well, I still enjoy it too honestly). And I still gotta' get a P7. Oh, and lot's more 1911's.

    I could never part with my 26, but I will only purchase 1911's from here on.

    I know all about the love and loyalty of 1911's. All I ever owned and carried for over 30 years.
    I have a 21sf that is a good dependable gun that holds plenty of 45's and is about as durable as a gun should be.
    Perfect carry gun that is cheaper than any 1911 that I would consider owning.
    I don't limit myself to one type of firearm no matter how much I like them.
    Of all my 1911's I have none that have shot over 7000 rounds without a single failure like my 21 and my 36.
    I don't consider the Glocks in the same class as a 1911, but they do serve a purpose very well.

    But Okie, there's so much more to experience in the handgun world. That's like vowing to only eat oatmeal for the rest of your life.:wavey:

    We must also fall into the naughty, naughty unfaithful cheater category. We agree that few handgun designs can equal Mr. Browning's 1911A1; and the handgun that can surpass it has yet to be devised. Still, we have a few other handguns that are not 1911A1 and are not going anywhere in the foreseeable future.

    We trudge on (cheating).

    Sorry okie. :embarassed:

    As big a 1911 fan as I am, I do like variety in semi autos and also love revolvers.

    Going 1911-only is akin to a vow of celibacy. -it might work for some, just not for me.

    Almost without exception I have since 1980 owned one or more 1911's. But I have not owned only 1911's. Currently I own a nice SA Mil.Spec. ans well as several S&W revolvers (M-18, M-28, M-625) and a G-22RTF. These are the handguns that best serve my needs and interest. I very much enjoy the 1911. I cannot see a time that I will not want to own and enjoy using one. But I very pleased with and enjoy using the other handguns I own. Sincerely. Brucev.

    No way, I carry 1911s and there's one next to my bed but there are too many other good platforms not to own a few. I am selling my glocks off and I'm down to 8 or so, with more going on the selling block. I've been buying up Steyrs and just picked up another M&P.

    This is the route I am going, currently down to just 1911s and a single BHP. I see both side of the issue but feel what is best for me is to concentrate on 1911s only.

    I currently own 9 1911's and 1 colt comander,but all I carry are magnum snub revolvers.Carried since 1980 and have gone back and forth on my carry guns and a revolver is my current favorite.

    And I still own a glock 26
