New guy from Western Mt.

Been lurking and reading posts for several years. Been a hunter and fisherman all my life but about 4 years ago i got into pistols. Got my first 1911 last year, a Springfield SS Target 9mm. Course doesn't seem like one 1911 is enough so looking for another.

Welcome to our 1911 forum.

Full size "SIG Sauers", "CZ" sport pistols, and classic collectible "USGI 1911s" have always been among my favourite guns.
I've been an avid collector and a shooter for decades, but I never stop learning,
After over 38 years of guns-ownership I still enjoy shooting my own reloadings at IDPA ranges at least twice a week.

JMO this is one of the best gun forums among the several I belong to, hope you'll enjoy your time here.

Safe shooting.
Before you start collecting 1911s .... buy books! Don't collect something that you'll be forever making excuses for, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, and buy the gun not the story.

welcome from VA
If it goes boomboomboom when you want it to, then it's a good 1911.

Welcome to the forum
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States, where men 'were' free." ~ Ronald Reagan
