Hello from Maryland. I'm a gun owner several times over in the not so free state. I'm a designated collector as well as a holder of a federal curio and relic license. My main shooting interest is 1911s, but I also collect USGI battle rifles and pistols, most of which I shoot on special occasions. I like firearm forums to share information and learn.

Welcome.  Nice 1911.

Thanks. It's a 1918 Colt that went through the Augusta Arsenal for WWII use. The grips are reproductions. I have the originals put on at Augusta, but want to keep them intact. 

Here's a 1944 Colt 1911 A1 that I had re-parkerized. A previous owner had it nickel plated and one after that DuraCoated it in tan and black. I felt obligated to give it back some of its dignity.

I like vintage Colt wheel guns, too, especially ones with law enforcement history. Definitely cool.
