    so tell us bac, when did you first discover your love for the 1911, and how did your epic collection get started?

    I've loved the 1911 since I turned 21, I guess, but didn't get into them seriously until about five or six years ago.

    I've been collecting handguns for a long time, but it was probably 2005 when I stopped buying and selling and just kept buying. ;)

    I've sold some guns in my younger days that I really regret. :crying:

    Sorry Bac, I know you are more of a handgun guy, but I am more curious right now about the long guns you regret selling. What were they?

    Dosn't kimber have a terrible track record for reliability from 1911 "experts?"

    (i have no 1911s, so no bias.)

    I haven't had a single issue with any of my Kimbers. I've been carrying my CDP for a while now.

    Georgia, I was referring to Quack's "EDC" as noted by the quotation marks... not his or bac's everyday carry.
