    Even after seeing various pictures of bac's 1911's, I resisted buying a 1911. Then he authored the beginner's 1911 buying guide, and....

    Thanks to bac, I didn't over spend or buy a 1911 with capabilities beyond my ability to appreciate.


    :shocked: Why in all of creation do I suddenly want a Hi-Point C9 now?

    Dont have it yet but mine will be like this one. My decision will be based a lot on Bac's writings, and various guides about 1911s among other research by me. It is my first and I think I started slightly above the beginner's curve.
