    I have yet to add a 1911 to my small but growing collection. Would love to hear people's thoughts about the various brands.

      Wilson Combat is my brand, and I take a perverse pleasure using my income tax refund to buy them. Plus, they are made in Arkansas. You could keep your money in state...assuming you are an Arkansas Razorback.

    I've shot over 25,000 rounds through my Kimber and it's still going strong.

    My parents bought me a Combat Commander for my 18th birthday. Been collecting 1911s ever since. I still have the Combat Commander, but mostly reach for my Springfield TRP these days as a carry gun. I have and like polymer guns, but if I could only have one defensive pistol, it would be the 1911. I guess that makes me officially an old guy. :)

    A few years ago I got on a WWII kick and got a Garand D-Day Edition and decided to get a GI45. Its simple and rough, I like it!
