This is a picture of my first 1911!



It's a great shooter - and one I truly enjoy!

Never handled or shot one. Heard good things

I believe I bought mine in 2006. For the time, and my pistol experience level, the Loaded model was
like acquiring an old big block Chevelle. One hell of a performer, and I paid $629 for it. I’ve aleays been a Springfield fan due to my ties back to the REAL Springfield Armory and the M1 Garand, a true masterpiece of a weapon.

Springfield, like many other companies, has recently dabbled into politics, they will have a black eye for a while over this last stunt.

Congrats on a good choice. I've got a couple (older1980's) Defenders and they shoot great. I'm a fan..

My first was a Colt 1911. Unfortunately, no pictures & she’s long down the road...
Me too. It was a great shooter but the front sight kept throwing itself down range. Got tired of sending it back to Colt so I traded it for a Sig 229.

Certainly not a 1911, but my first purchase. I bought it from a friend in High School who had field stripped it, and couldn’t reassemble it. I bought a brown lunch bag full of parts for $10.00. I took it to a gun shop and had them reassemble it for me. Still have the old girl today. 1912 Hungarian Officers Pistol 32 ACP.

Pretty cool. When did you last fire it?

Thanks for the kind comment! More of a nostalgia piece for me. I shot her a lot in my teens and 20’s. But it’s probably been 40 years since her last outing.
