    I have had the 1911 "fever" for years now. I go to a gun stores and I walked directly to the 1911 case. I go to a gun show and I scan over the 100s of none 1911s and stop and look at all the 1911s at each table. I browse the 1911 maker websites and forums more or less ignoring none 1911 stuff.

    Now I find my self still loving the slab side ole gal but I am more and more drawn to these darn things:

    http://www.uberti.com/

    I currently only have the 7 1/2" Outlaw but really want more!

    So what non 1911 category of firearms is everybody else "drawn" too?

    I'm a fan of just about all handguns.

    1911s are my favorite, but I also like collecting and shooting older steel or metal 9mms. I love the exotic stuff.

    i used to love polymer, now while i still appreciate my Glocks, HK's, and M&P i really like the steel stuff.
    I just got a CZ SP-01 Tactical and it is such a great shooter. I also love Sigs, HP's, and AR's

    Gentleman,

    Saying you like type A, type B, type C type D of guns is not a "category" :)

    Now see Redheads was specific....he did not say "women"....he chose a category of women....

    Let's try this:

    "You can get with that"

    I'm a universal gun guy. I don't have a perfect fit. I like EVERYTHING. 1911's, polymer guns, single action colts, you name it.

    I really like single action revolvers too. I own three of them. Uberti makes a nickel plated Schofield replica that I really like, but its about $1300. Maybe someday.

    I love full lug DA revolvers and unfluted SA revolvers. But, like BAC said, I love all guns. Hell, read what's under my username. :cool:

    Dragging a knee while doing 70mph around a corner. Or anything that will do 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds.

    Glocks. :cool:

    They are one of the simplest, most reliable designs, ever.

    Ruggles,

    That's my car... I bought one back in February as a commuter (I live 25 miles from work). My nieces call it the Hamster-Mobile, but they're just jealous! :supergrin:

    Colt revolvers, particularly the classic lock-work designs like the I frame, D frame, New Service, etc. The only problem is that the pricing is getting ridiculous.
