1911's are all I buy now

Just looking around today. Thought I would post a couple of pic's.
I am lucky enough to own a number of 1911's. It is the only style pistol that I buy now.
Here are a couple of pictures.
The Colt is a 9mm. It can split playing cards at 20 ft.

Thanks for posting, those are beautiful pistols. And, I have a set of those John Wayne coasters too! He had some great quotes.

Considering a 9 mm in 1911 frame - they are looking for one . I am in California and
hard to find almost anything . Probably going to end up with the 44 desert eagle 44 .
For me the 44 is easier to reload than the 9 mm - but the 9 mm bullets are easier to find .

Cigar that Kimber is a beauty, and the Colt ain't nothing to sneeze at.
I am interested in a 1911 in 9 as well. Just waiting for the wallet to catch up to my I want one guns list.

Funny thing about the Colt 9mm. I wanted a older Colt only. Stopped in a GS and asked if they had one. They did but sold it just before I stopped in. I got on the computer that night and found mine on the Gander Mountain used gun site. Of all places. $725.00. Needless to say I bought it.
I put in all new springs, polished the internals and changed the collect bushing to a solid one.
It is one of my favorites.

Yea, I have a few different brands of 1911's
Love em.

I don't own any Kimbers though.
They are nice but I'll just shoot wolfie's once in a while and that way when they need maintenance, she can take care of it.

Just teasing wolfie.
Kimbers are nice.

I don't have a pic with the new grips yet but here is one of my very favorites.
For carry it's a commander size for me 4.25brl

Colt Commander I decided I like the ambi safeties on it.



Couple of full size Ruger 1991's too.





Of course a Commander size Ruger too.



Same pistol with the Gunny Grips my friend gave me.



Another Colt Commander that my son latched onto some years ago.



And this old thing too.
It works!

LOL @ Gunny G

Yea, you can shoot any of my 1911s whenever you want.
I'll get around to cleaning them sometime.

An updated pic of my meager 1911 collection

Bottom row: Kimber Pro Carry II with grips from my son, STI Shadow, Ruger SR1911 full size.

What gorgeous collections! Thanks for sharing, folks.

At one time, we had a dozen 1911s and I still love them. Had to let them go, save one, since my old hands could no longer rack a 1911 slide, reliably. Old age does suck. I do NOT feel at all deprived or under-gunned, though, with our 7 and, especially 8 shot 357 Smith revolvers, shown, here. Nowhere near as purty as a 1911, but they can handle any problem I might encounter. Both are cut for moon clips, too, so fairly fast to reload.

Wolf - I love your collection. Yours is a very good mix of what is nice about 1911's.
I like having a choice when deciding which gun to carry.
I rotate through those that I have proven reliable and enjoy everything I own.
