@Wedge That’s where you can earn the big bucks you make being a Moderator
I am part of another forum that has a place for random conversation and news. But to keep the riff raff out of it there is a 50 post count minimum.
A little diversion for fun and as Wedge said, “community comradery” within a topic ( which I have been guilty of myself) is a great thing as long as they are just short moments.
We can all throw in a short take on it, and then return to topic subjects.
LOL, when I was new and catching up on the threads I seen some of your interactions I thought it was funny, but he’s a really good dude, what was it?..Danger Will or something…LMAO
That was KM55, the first admin. He was (and still is) a great guy. His efforts on running this forum were huge. He was just a bit quick to post “Danger Will Robinson” (from Lost in Space) if any thread got just a little bit off topic, which I thought was a bit draconian, but it’s all good.
@Wedge yup super nice guy really enjoyed our range time
Now that that’s done, can we get back to some more 1911 porn?
Who knows what movie this is from, kinda what got me into collecting these beautiful pieces of art, I don’t have these yet but someday, someday…
@omnivious Face Off ???
More porn? Well, she’s a bit ugly, but this is my Kimber commander sized 1911. It’s somewhat interesting. It has a polymer lower/grip and can take double stack mags. 14+1. Not bad for a 1911 that fully loaded weighs no more than a full sized steel 1911 and it’s no thicker through the grip than the center of a single stack 1911 grip with standard issue wood panels. The grip is more square, but it still feels really good.
@godallmighty You got the movie right with “Face Off”
“I am Castor Troy!”
Yes indeed, face off, I don’t think I can watch the movie again but I can look at that 1911 all day, so pretty… One of my favorite movie guns of all time!
Yeah, but that was a pretty bitchin’ dual 1911 holster rig.
I love 1911s. I don’t know how you couldn’t. They are sweet looking, have history, and the trigger is just awesome. I only own one and it’s a cheap Rock Island 1911-A1 Tactical (something a lot of 1911 snobs turn their nose at, but I don’t live to impress anybody so they can KMA :)), but it’s a solid shooter.
I 3D printed the grips on mine using wood filament. Then I stained them.
@GL9CK nice gun, sweet ass grips
I say as long as they shoot straight, it doesn’t really matter, if you’re trying to collect them, that’s a different story but if you’re wanting a 1911 that you can actually use? I’d have no problem with an ria, affordable and from what I’ve heard, a well put together firearm.
I have a 5" plain jane Rock Island 1911, too. It’s been a solid, reliable pistol. And, in some ways, they’re more “American” than other 1911s even through they’re made in the Philippines. RIA bought the tooling and machinery that was used to make the 1911s our troops used in WWII.
