Hello from northern Michigan

Hello everyone. My name is Mike and I love guns. Ive been accumulating and dreaming about guns for about 40 years now. It would make most liberals cry, the number of firearms that have passed through my hands. Most of my life if I wanted a new gun I would have to trade one of my old ones off. Now I am pretty happy with my collection and have pretty much settled down on just accumulating and have started to focus on quality and getting the most out of what I have.

My 1911 collection is only two guns. A pre 70 series Colt, and a Dan Wesson 10mm cbob.

I enjoy reloading as much as the guns. Sometimes we go out to shoot up some ammo just so I have something to reload.

Normally I am pretty busy with work and family to participate much in Forums. But, I just had rotator cuff surgery and am forced to take some time off work. So I thought it would be a good time to join and introduce myself.

Welcome aboard!! You're going to learn much here on these forums! I know I have.

If you have the time and energy, you might want to post some pics of the pre-Series 70 Colt you have in the "USGI/Foreign Military and Other Vintage 1911s" subforum. The knowledge of many of the collectors who frequent that subforum might amaze you!

Hi from North Dakota
Formerly "flinch" on the forum, but that's a story in itself
