... of why I'm now so anxious to get my 1911.

I originally began saving and figured I'd have enough for a good base model after about a year. But... I can't stand looking at all of this







with no way to shoot it!

There is more of this ammo btw. I just took a sample pic of each type.

Josh, you know as well as I do that you didn't need any excuse like a bunch of ammo to justify buying a 1911.

Of course, you'll be completely tricked out with ammo when the gun arrives. Now all you have to do is buy eightylevendozen holsters for it.

LelandRay, that's torture! My business is taking a beating from layoffs and lockouts. I'm actually looking for a pt job to supplement my income. Let's see... I don't really need to eat... ;)

Sadistic? Me? Truth be known, recent medical problems combined with no health insurance have led me to begin staring at a couple of special pieces in the safe that might be better off converted into cash. None of these, however.

Why do people insist on calling me OLD????

Right now I'm laid up with tonsilitis, even though I thought I got rid of those little buggers back in '57.

I dropped that gun off for refinishing just this morning.

Quick off-topic: Because you are only a few years younger than my parents ;) You have your "show age" enabled in your profile it looks like.

I don't understand refinishing pistols. It's another thread I guess, but I would use touch up blue (the acid stuff, three pens) and just got tired of applying it.

Even if I forget to oil my pistol for a while it doesn't rust. Not purty but very functional.

My 1911 will look the same way after about a week
