Let's see your 1911s!

I'm small potatoes compared to some of you.

The Colt 1911 was my father's. I'm 65, and I remember him bringing it home when I was 8 or so, and how heavy it was then. I keep waiting for the Mustang to grow up.

Not the only 1911 I own, but my favorite.  STI Trojan 9mm.  My only regret about this gun is not getting its twin in .45 back before STI went exclusively tacti-cool.

Thanks!  It started life as a blue carbon steel gun.  STI's bluing is sometimes iffy and I apparently have alien acid sweat.  After six months of hard use, it looked like a WW2 Remington Rand and I sent it to STI to get hard chromed before it completely rusted away.  When it came back and I opened the box, I just about lost my composure.  Some have thought it's just a safe queen, but it has 20-25K rounds through it and has won eight or ten IDPA ESP division titles.  In some other thread I think I said a Glock 34 is my all time favorite handgun.  I may have lied...
