Hello all . new to forum , but have been following for some time , hope to have some great conversations and maybe learn as I go ...

1911Addicts and you're welcome
Some fella mentioned something about "paying to be on the forum"? I don't mind contributing a little something to keep this forum up and running. I just have never seen anything asking ..
Well dream 1911's are now a reality!
Imagine a 1911 in .357, not .355 caliber.
Now imagine this cartridge performing equally or superior to the 357 Magnum...
Now imagine it as high capacity as a regular 9mm...
There you have it!
A 1911 in 357 Ring Of Fire caliber, with 9+1 in your pistol.
Got pics? Need to see this
I found it and checked it out. Sounds kind of cool as I like firearms that are a little “off” so to speak but I’ll stick with my Coonan 357mag 1911ish pistol
Retired from the Duracell/Gillette battery world in 1999. Started back in 1911,s (4) 45 acp (1) 9 mm & (1) 22. Love to reload and fine tune 1911 pistols. Live on Georgia / Florida line.
I have on order a DWX-Compact but who knows when DW will start up again. Wilson Combat makes the EDC XP9 (4”, 1911 on X Frame, 15+1). It’s beautiful but also $2700 MSRP. However, I I could trade in 2 DW ECO’s and a Sig P 365 XL recently bought but don’t like and only have a few hundred to pay for the Wilson. STI, Wilson XP9 and DWX -C are probably the three best 1911 double stacks out there.
When that DWX finally hit's the stores, STI and Wilson are going to have some serious competition @ 1700.00
Curious to see how it plays out when it hits the market, looks like a winner.
I have the Wilson edc X9 and the P365XL and love both, currently do not have any DWs so this might be an option.

I see two different 1911's, beautiful looking pistols. Are they Colts? Welcome to the forum from the great Northwest...
