    Alright guys if you guys had a choice which one would you pick and why? I already have a WC Professional on layaway and I am already thinking on what to purchase next. All of my guns will get shot alot. My primary reason is for carry duty and HD but I am also going to try to collect as many as I can for the rest of my remaining years on this earth. I am going to try to get one from each of the semi-custom shops first and then work my way down to the less expensive 1911s in the market. What do you guys think about that? Like I said earlier I already ordered the WC so that's one down. The others are in no particular order

    Nighthawk Grp this one would mainly for HD

    Truly I can't decide which one to purchase next. It probably won't happen until I pay off the Wilson but it is going to happen no turning back now I'm in too deep, the disease has set in and there is no known cure but there is a way to put it into remission and that is to keep buying them.:tongueout:

    I have absolutely no idea why anyone would buy up a bunch of 1911s and call 'em a collection. They're just a bunch of used guns. I collect ammo.

    Good choice on the Wilson.

    Nighthawks are nice, I'd order a GRP with a naked slide, the GRP rollmarks are too much for me. I've handled a Nighthawk 10-8 and was impressed.

    I get a lot more satisfaction having good 1911s that are setup like I like 'em and reliable enough to carry, train and shoot matches with.

    :headscratch:

    People collect anything, including coins, stamps, watches, cars, motorcycles, baskets, jewelery, rocks, gems, knives, etc.

    What the hell is the matter with collecting guns? :dunno:

    I know quite a few people who do.

    On a Taurus it wouldn't surprise me. Bac I couldn't figure that one either. By his logic Jay Leno has a bunch of uses cars but a collection of tires? :dunno:
