Why?

Anyone who knows me at all, knows I love Ed Brown guns. So, lets have a little fun.

My first experience was shooting a friend's Special Forces. After that I bought a used Kobra Carry. Then I bought a Special Forces. This was my first shot with the Special Forces:


A few weeks later I was at the range practicing with the Kobra Carry. There was a grandfather with his grand daughter a few lanes down. She had never fired a 1911 before so, I let her shoot my Kobra Carry. This was her very first shot with any 1911:


These are just two more reasons I love Ed Brown pistols. Anyone else have crazy reasons like this that define their love for the Ed Brown guns?

They are very accurate and come with great triggers

My EB KC is the only 1911 I have, that my wife fell in love with the very first time she shot it. Shes happy, Im happy and we both have lotsa love for EB pistols.







The KC is one of my favorite tools in the toolbox.

That would be enough for me, for sure!

Full disclosure, I don't own an Ed Brown - yet. Never even had a chance to shoot one, unfortunately. So why do I want one so desperately? Because of the classic, clean, smooth look they have compared to just about every other 1911 I've ever seen. There's nothing that calls to me like a Brown!

Someday...

Much appreciated, Rastoff. I don't travel that far west usually. But your offer is very kind.

I admit my previous post was a little tongue in cheek due to the vast distance between us. However, I am serious about that. If you, or anyone else, finds themselves in my neck of the woods, I'll be more than happy to take you to the range to do some shooting.

I’m relatively new to the Ed Brown family, having never fired one before acquiring one recently (a stainless Government Model of which I’ll try to post some pics shorty). The gun is SO well executed, it has made me ponder selling a couple of other nice 1911s to fund a second EB.

I have the same feeling. I sold my Beretta DT10 to purchase another Ed Brown. It was a good decision.

If you ever get up to St. Louis give me a shout and you can shoot one of my Ed Browns.

Thanks! I really appreciate that, and will definitely keep that in mind!

I never shot one before ordering my first one either. I just held one and that was enough to convince me. I now have two; one for each son after I get MUCH older! Next endeavor in the high end gun venture...... Korth! Saving mode started

I am a mediocre shot at best but I have said before, that my four Browns are the most accurate of my 1911 battery, which includes a Wilson, a Nighthawk, a Les Baer , several Springfields and a Cabot. It's as though the Browns are on autopilot, when it comes to finding the bull. Case in point, I usually shoot at about 25 feet. The first time I shot my 9mm Kobra Carry, the very first round was dead center. I'm thinking, "Now what? Things can only get worse from here Might as well get back in the car and go home."
Really, at times it's almost spooky.

I just got to southern California for the first time last year, right on the bay in San Diego. I began to understand why people live there despite all the anti-gun sentiment and other silliness.

California can be stunningly beautiful:





There are things here that can't be found anywhere else in the world:

It's hard to grasp just how big this tree is from a picture. Look at the base. There are 8 boy scouts standing there.

All of these pictures were taken within 2 hours of my house.

Yes, California is beautiful. Alas, the politics are as ugly as it gets. I'm just glad I can still get Ed Brown guns here.

Geographically, the best state in the country. Politically/socially, not.
