    I just got my 1st 1911, and am so happy!!!!! I had been drooling all over a Kimber Custom CDP II at my dealer for the past several months, and finally decided that I just had to have it. I picked it up on the 3rd, and wow, what an amazing weapon!!!

    Sorry for the post, but it's been 4 days now, and I am still on such a high!

    I feel sorry for the rest of my handguns, as they are now banished to the back of the safe forever!

    Congrats on your new 1911. Your next purchase will be a larger gun safe. No one owns just one 1911.

    shooter45 - tell me it isn't so?

    I don't need any more handguns (or long guns for that matter). Running out of places to put them as it is (where I can remember to find them at least).

    I know the feeling Lynn. I have a much larger safe than I thought I'd ever need, and wouldn't ya know it, it's almost full!

    Damn the state of Vermont with their instant background checks and no gun laws!

    Evan,

    Yeah that instant check thing really does make it hard to keep the safe from overflowing. Or in my case behind my bedroom door - at the rate I'm going I won't have any room in my closet for clothes either.

    Having a carry permit in AZ gets an instant check. Had I not moved when I did......well like T said can't close the safe now.

    Ya know, I bought a safe to keep 3 guns in, and they got lonely in that big safe by themselves. I didn't have any choice in the matter, they just needed to have friends! Now that the 1st safe is almost full I'm thinking about getting second safe... but the only problem with that is the gun that goes into the new safe will be lonely too.......

    Boy Skiingfool1974, what a terrible problem you have. Real catch 22 situation. If the wife complains, tell her it is like shoes and dresses. You must have many combinations. Multiple safes and multiple guns to go in said safes.
