11.11.2011 Moving on...

Over ten years ago, I walked into a small gun shop on the West side of Indianapolis and placed a down payment on my first 1911 pistol Ė a Kimber Classic Stainless. I was fortunate growing up to have parents who embraced the shooting sports and at that time in my life had logged many days of range time with my father shooting. It wasnít until I had graduated college and secured my first real job that I was finally able to purchase the one handgun I had been reading about and coveting since I was a kid. When I began researching the 1911, I found plenty of historical and technical information on the Internet but I couldnít find a community dedicated to the pistol like I had found for other hobbies and interests I had at the time. While waiting to begin work at my job, I rented server space, purchased a UBB forum software license, and started 1911forum.com.

Itís been an absolute thrill being a part of this growing community over the last decade. Iíve met and worked with many great people, learned technical skills that Iíve applied to my career, and acquired more knowledge about my favorite handgun than I ever thought possible. As with any project that requires attention and devotion, Iíve reached the point in my life where I feel itís time to move on to other things. For that reason, Iíve decided to sell 1911forum.com to pursue other interests.

The new owners of the forum have expressed their desire to maintain the current staff and management style. LW McVay will take the lead staff role and Iíll be working with him to ensure a smooth transition. The new owners of the forum will introduce themselves shortly.

I want to thank the staff members who have volunteered their time and effort to maintain a community for all to enjoy. Your efforts have shaped the forum into what it is today and Iím forever grateful.

Thanks to everyone for making the first decade of this forum an astounding success. And on this day of remembrance, God bless the military veterans on this forum and those serving around the world so we can live free.

I look forward to working with LW and the rest of the team and watching the forum continue to grow and strengthen as a community in the coming decades.

All the best,
