    Well, here are the 1911 family pics I've been promising for quite a while. I mentioned that as soon as I got my Pistol Dynamics, I would take the pics and I'm keeping my word. Its the first family 1911 pic I've taken in nearly three years and I'm hoping it doesn't disappoint.

    I'm not good at taking group pics, so these will have to do. I laid them out and then stood on a chair to shoot them. They aren't in any specific order, other than keeping like brands together. I tried to mix all price ranges into each row.




    Instead of just posting a boring key right away, can anyone name all of them? ;)

    In fact, I'm not sure who uses the GT casino, but I'm transferring a million casino dollars to whoever can name three dozen first. That really shouldn't be hard to do, as many of you really know your 1911s. Just the company and model name will be fine, don't worry about finish, model number, etc.

    I'll post the full key once somebody names three dozen of them. If nobody gets it by late afternoon, I'll just post the key the give the cash to whoever got the most, whether its 30 or 10.

    If nobody wants to try, I'll post the key later on today, but come on, have some fun. That's what GT is all about, isn't it? :supergrin: Of course, who knows, maybe nobody plays the casino.

    Anyway, enjoy the pics...





    Edit: Here's the key. I just realized how dumb these pics look without the description...

    I apologize in advance for the lousy quality. As I mentioned before, I'm terrible with large pics, which is one reason I don't try to do it often. :embarassed:

    You trying to be cute? 5 rows of 9. You have 45 1911s?

    Very nice collection I think I've seen most of them piecemeal over the years. I'm not up to naming them this morning. Still slugging through my coffee.

    No Kimber with external extractor in the family? I apologize in advance if you do, my eyes are not what they used to.

    Thanks.

    No, you didn't miss it.

    I have no older Kimbers, unfortunately.

    Guys, thanks for the great comments.

    I'm just going to post the key. The more I look at this, the dumber the pics look with no description. I'll get rid of my casino dollars another time. :)
