    Springfield Milspec .45 back in 1991. Then got it enhanced (beavertail, safety), then added a comp, then rechambered in .38 super, then added a dot sight. Still have it today and use it for Steel Matches.

    This gun has some mileage for sure.

    Series 70 Colt. Shot it almost to the point it could not be rebuilt. Sold it to the Company First Sergeant.

    You sold that, yet you hang onto the Taurus? :shame:

    :rofl: I can't say much. I traded my Norinco off a couple of years ago. Wish I would have kept it. :)

    Springfield GI SS. It was the first gun my wife bought me as well. I sold it to another officer and realized that I made a mistake. I bought it back and now it's S.A. Custom shop.

    The first one I shot was a colt series 70 gold cup. The first I owned was a kimber tle. That kimber had one of the sweetest triggers.....

    Springfield GI. 4.25" Had a crap finish from the factory, had it refinished, and shot it for a bit, It consistantly flung the empties back in my face, sold it off.
    Then had a RIA Officers.
    Now have a SW 1911.

    First was a Para Ord P14 Limited. Never did run reliably, so I sold it.

    The one I've had the longest is a Les Baer Premier II 1.5", which I've had for about 10 years. It's only had 2 malfunctions in a decade, and is just as accurate now as it was the day I took it home. The finish is getting pretty thin in places, but that just adds to the charm for me.
