I was just wondering how many of you ladies are into 1911s. We don't have very many female members at www.1911forum.com, or www.louderthanwords.us. We would certainly love to have you.

If you are not into 1911s, what is your sidearm of choice?

I carry a 1911. I honestly wish I had something smaller but I love the .45 cal and I am very proficient with it.

My babies...Colt 1911 Gov model, 9mm and a .45 Gold Cup, both Series 70. I also have a Commander, but she's pretty rough around the edges.

Still no pics of that Commander, Jeez.

I had hoped there would be at least a few of you. As classy as you all are, I should've had no doubts.

I love girls that crush stereotypes.....you would expect to see a woman with a little Barreta tomcat or Taurus .22 or something, cuz they're wimpy girly-girls...oh yeah, if you beleive that....you're a friggin idiot

The future Mrs Cowboy (BeautifulStranger) is better with my .45 than I am and I'm proud of her for it. I know she is getting a .380 when she turns 21 in a few weeks, but I'm already thinking about when she gets ready for a .45....and she will....the 45-fu is strong in her.... I can sence it

You ladies that do carry a 1911, why did it first appeal to you?

What is there not to love? The 1911 is a classic, it has elegant lines, and was truly an engineering marvel for it's time and for today. It is also very well balanced. Not to mention, a lot of guys think that women can't shoot a 1911, because .45 is too strong, but the characteristics of the .45 recoil often make it as easy if not easier to control that some 9mm pistols I know. Also, the grip on a 1911 single stack is great for people with smaller hands, especially with a short trigger - so it is a good choice for many women.

We generally start out our beginners with .22's then we move them up to 9mm and .38, and then the 1911's - you should see the smiles break out on most of them when they shoot the 1911 - most of them don't go back.

Not to mention, the 1911 is just downright sexy.

Also, my grandmother actually has a 1911 - I've wanted one since I was a little girl.

because it feels natural, from the fit in my hand to the draw, aim and trigger pull. If it doesn't feel natural, how accurate really are you going to be with it?
That and they just look damn sexy.

Exactly. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way.

I make it a strict rule to never leg-hump, but damn you're dreamy.

If Mrs. swingset ever sobers up from the GHB and chews through her leather straps, I'm gonna stalk you.

Kinda spooky....wonder if we ever dated?

You're my kinda lady. I say that metaphorically, I assume your eyesight is pretty good. Most of my dates had some sort of impaired vision, obviously.
