Why does this always happen...

I find a good deal on a box of M2 ball 30-06 ammo.

Then it magically reproduces into an M1 garand.

This rifle then spawns an M1 carbine..

Now I look around and their is a new 1911a1 sitting there.. I'm getting scared now.

Anybody else have this strange occurrence?

Reconinforce,

It is completely normal,---happens all the time in this neck of the woods! (With proper care and feeding.)

I wish I had your problem! When I have money to buy this stuff they all run and hide. But when I'm flat broke they all come out of the woodwork again, often sporting tags showing a killer deal.

Anyway, that's a great set of small arms you got there. Excellent photography too. Maybe I need to take my Garand out for a little exercise this weekend as well.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Could've been much worse; could've spent your money on a woman.

Lol I did not want to clutter the pic up. Just got my first 1903 a few weeks ago plus two more WWII 1911s.. And had the bayonets. I do need the Thompson though.

It's a sickness. But o so fun.

You're not alone, happened to me more than once.

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.

The collection could be a good representation of war progression. Jump into theatre with the carbine due to the weight. Transition to the garand from a battle field pick-up for more firepower. Then comes the promotion and a 1911.

Interesting how many firearms excell and fail depending on the situation or need. Always a trade off.

Looks great. I've got something similar but I like the more refined look on yours. Now I need that but on a rotatable wall like James Bond would have. lol

Yep !!!
Then I got divorced and it all went away .
It was just amazing, how my soon to be e-wife, all out of nowhere became all interested in my gun collection .
She never liked my gun collection before.
