    What was the very first 1911 you ever shot? For me it was a Springfield Armory Loaded pistol. A friend from the gun club I was in let me shoot his:thumbsup:

    I think it was one of the first generation Delta Elites that came out. I think I might have 10 or 11? Not too sure what my dad was thinking letting me shoot that thing.

    Sadly, I didn't have my first 1911 until I was 20. It was a jamming POS that soured me on them for a while-until I bought my first fullsize from a little company that started making 1911's called Kimber. That's the first one I owned that's always worked 100%.

    Para Ord P14. It worked fairly well with fmj, but wouldn't feed hollowpoints at all. Next was an even more finicky Colt Officer's model. I eventually traded them off and got a Les Baer Premier II. That was almost 10 years ago, and my Baer is still a tackdriver and has only ever had one malfunction.

    Ditto, friend at the gun club let me shoot his. Mine was a Springfield, not 100% sure of the model, so I will have to ask. But it was in .40 cal. not .45
