Hello everyone! I've been enjoying the 1911 forum for about a year and decided to finally join. I only own one 1911, a Springfield Armory stainless trp .45. I changed the full length guide rod for a Wilson GI and put grey starburst grips on it. I like the grey better with the stainless. I also work leather, and being a lefty, it makes it difficult to find good holsters, so I make my own.
1911s just feel great in the hand and are a dream to shoot. The weight of an all steel pistol on your hip is a reminder that you have a formidable weapon readily available. I find them comfortable and comforting to carry.
Thank you for welcoming me and I look forward to interacting with y'all from my home in Tennessee.
