I got to shoot one a couple years ago. I don't usually shoot 1911s myself, but it was very well done without a lot of crap added for no reason.

Anyone here have one?

Tag. Never even seen one in real life, but I hear nice things.

Part of the Vickers mystique is thaty he was too busy to make many guns. So there aren't many out there.

Of course, I owned 8 of them.

But I sold them all and bought an Enzo.

One of the members of my gun club bought the 9 mm 1911 that Larry used to win the IDPA championshiop one year. Said member let me fire a mag of ammo through it. Sweet!

Didn't you shoot one of his pistols during the night shoot/crimson trace demonstration in our class? I shot one his customs and I’m sure you did also. Everybody on our side of the line shot Larrys. The other side shot Mr. Langdons. I also remember that we switched pistols for some reason. I shot your Glock and you & JD shot my Wilson.

SON OF A.... That's got to hurt still!!!


I've not shot one of Mr. Vickers, but I got to fondle one that was built in the last 2 years. The man is a genius/artist/master all in one. I've played with Browns, Wilsons, Baers, Nighthawks, etc. and none of them compared to the Vickers pistol IMO. Unfortunately he is a busy man and doesn't build many these days.

Larry was using a Nighthawk at that course and Ernie was using a S&W 1911.

Eh, its alright. The Ferarri is more fun anyways, and the women love it. Works alot better than the time I walked into my local mall with all my Vickers 1911's in various holsters. What can I say, they like the car more.

Nothing beats the looks I get being a 21 year old driving around in a million dollar car

Ok, I'm done.
