Went to the local gun show this weekend (George R Brown Convention Center in Houston) and holy crap their were more 1911s than at any other gunshow I have been to in the last 20+ years. Multiple dealers with just all kinds of makes and models for sale. Really cool to see them all. From Nighthawks and Wilsons to Colt , Kimbers, Springfield, Wessons, S&W, Remington, Sig, Magnum Research to all of the imports from the Philippines. The only one I did not see was Ruger. I guess production is way up in 1911 land Just a ton of ARs as well. And of course the Glocks & XDs as well. The new compact .45ACP XD slim model seems like a great little gun, kinda like a Walther PPS that ate a little too much. All I bought was a stripped AR lower and 40 rounds of 6.8 SPC but had a good time none the less. Show was packed on Saturday. Anybody else seeing the 1911 selection in their area increasing like this? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
