I've heard a lot of good things about this site, and figured I should sign up and check it out for myself. I've been around guns for a lot of years now (probably too many). While I own and use a number of handguns the 1911 has always been my go to choice. I'm not a collector, but have a couple dozen handguns. Right now I only have a couple of 1911s, my current carry pistol is a 1978 Colt Combat Commander slicked up by Ed Vandenberg. Lot of its inards are transplants from Ed Brown. Looking forward to enjoying myself here while gaining a lot of good information on 1911s!!!
