Old new guy

Old(er) dog learning new tricks, or actually relearning old ones. Been in quite a few directions in terms of manual of operation over the years and have fairly recently come back to the 1911 MOA. I've mostly been a DA/SA shooter but I bought some Sigs last year that are SA, cocked and locked guns and found that I shoot them better than DA. Finally closed the circle that started with a Beretta 70s back in '82. Have a DW Guardian in .45acp on the way. Prior to this my favorite caliber was .40S&W and this will be my first .45.

Welcome from another "old" guy from balmy North Dakota
Formerly "flinch" on the forum, but that's a story in itself

Welcome to the site from Italy.
Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you're going to collect, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, make sure it is a very good example and buy the gun not the story.

I like "Come back to the 1911"

That's common, I myself have done that! The best way to come back is if you never sold your iron in the first place.

At any rate, welcome.
