Cool feet!

Yours is a most advanced case of 1911 poisoning. I dont see you getting any glocks anytime soon.

I like my glocks to. I have a 17 and a 26. But I love my 45s

My collection is a tad smaller than yours, but......

Top row: Springfield Champion Park'd , Springfield Champion SS

Bottom row: Kimber Custom-II , Springfield GI

Finally had a chance to get all 3 of the springers out to the range for the first time. 100 rounds through each gun, not one failure of any kind and all 3 hit right where you point 'em. The Kimber of course is flawless. Fed a bunch of WWB JHP's through the SS and no issues, so it will be my daily carry (it's also the only one right now with an ambi-safety and I'm a lefty).

I love my 1911's!!!

kcobean you also have a very nice looking set of 45s
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 7:04:50 AM EDT

i had a 5th one (EE's personal build), but i traded it off for a HK USPf .45acp

Thanks. I think I need to add a Colt or two to the collection though, you have some nice guns! I'm debating whether I need an AR or another 1911 next....the tough choices in life, you know?

I just picked up 3 more RRA AR15 lowers. Know it is time to shop for parts. I build them a little at a time. That way big cash dont have to come out of my pocket all at once. I buy the 45s when they come up.

I need to convince my cousin to post pictures of his dual Sig GSRs because he says "one for each hand" too.

He also has the holster similar to the one used by Nicolas Cage's character in Face Off that allows him to carry both pistols at the small of his back. He is in the process of obtaining his concealed carry permit, but I reminded him that concealing two of those puppies at the small of his back will be ultra tough without a jacket of some kind.

hobbs5624 - I salute you for the great collection and I am green with 1911 envy!
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:21:04 PM EDT
Thanks, but two of the guns are not mine. The top right belongs to FROST18E. I have a few more lying around unassembled. Boy I need to ditch some of these. Daddy needs a motorcycle.

usagold- Did you pick up the 70 Combat Commander at Blackwing? If so, good going on the deal and thanks for taking it out of the store. The damn thing called to me everytime I walked in and my resolve was wearing away.

Edit To Add- I must admit I was somewhat depressed when I saw it missing from the display.
