    What happened to the website; 1911 Forum? I am googling it and I get the other forums. Did they close up? It had an exceptional USGI page.

    They were down yesterday for maintenance. However - now, Veriscope owns them now. And, they just converted the site software recently. It REALLY sucks.

    MANY gun forums are owned by them, and 1 by 1 they are making the software change. Regulars on all these forums are quitting...

    Looks like the same bunch that re-worked the Taurus site.

    I was talking about the website, not the firearms. I own probably a dozen or so Taurus handguns. Everyone has been a winner. Well, the 1911 had a lot of help to get there, but that was my intention from the beginning.

    Yes, and I was just making a joke about the website, as the topic of that site is "Taurus" :p

    Lots of complaints about the new style, haven't read one that likes it.

    Years ago I had a legitimate issue with one of their sponsors. I got banned for posting about it when people asked about that manufacturer.

    I was a "Senior Member" meaning I paid to support the site, but they have banned a few folks whose opinions and comments I respected. The new site format was the last straw. I rarely ever go there anymore.
