    Years ago all I had was 1911's then I got into some other guns glock H&K and many others all great guns. But for some reason I have been drawn back to the 1911. I dont know if its because this platform has been around for 100 years or because I can shoot them really well or what. I think I am in love all over again. Here are my two recent purchases. A kimber crimson carry II and a Kimber custom TLE II.

    Congrats! It's hard to stay away.
     
  7. All of those reasons and more...
    The 1911's are classy guns with "soul".
    Something that plastic guns will never have no matter how good a gun they are.

    I tried all the new wonder guns. Sold most of them and bought 3 1911's last year. I'm sorry I waisted a decade on second rate guns.

    Hey maineglocker,
    I've been there... as the son of a 1911 Custom Pistol-maker I grew up with and on the 1911! Dad died in 1987 just as the Glock was coming into its own. I personally got interested in the Glock after my son was issued a Glock 22 as his duty weapon on the Police force. Dad would probably roll over in his grave knowing that I was shooting/carrying a Tupperware gun but would take great pride that I am shooting with my son as he did with me :cool:
