Shooting, reloading and carrying for over 40 years. Last ten or so have been pretty much strictly 1911’s. Preference in 1911’s is Wilson and Milt Sparks for holsters. Try to get to the range twice a week, once with the wife and once by myself. Do what work I can on my 1911’s and haven’t visited a gunsmith in about eight years after a bad experience that lead me to learning all I can about 1911’s. Retired a little over a year ago from a 40 year career in law enforcement and was our chief firearms instructor and a major case detective. Retirement is the best job I’ve ever had and hope to keep it a long time.
