    Ya think? 18 and looking for more. I quit buying anything else. The 1911 platform rocks!

    I have several revolvers and several poly guns too but seldom shoot anything but my 1911s.

    Great looking collection Dan, I can see that my collection has a long way to go. My favorite for shooting or carrying is still my old Colt Series '70 in a Milt Sparks Yaque Slide. I have had that holster since Milt Sparks was doing business out of Idaho City. Call me old fashioned but I just like things that have been tried and tested.

    I'll have to use your photo DD to convince the wife I 'need' more, only have 4 myself, sold my first one like an idiot. well, 4.5, I've not finished my commander build yet. need to finish barrel/slide/frame fit and install my sights yet plus finish checkering the front strap.

    See honey, this guy has 18! I need at least a couple more...

    I noticed all have the correct magazine in them also!

    There are some of my 1911s missing in that picture, but yes, I use wilson combat mags. There are a few folks here that have twice as many as I do. Limbkiller has at least 32-34 or more.

    I have 2 dozen WC mags and it seems like I hardly have any! need about a hundred of 'em... same for my other guns, I was cleaning and marking magazines a few months ago, M1A, AR/M4, 1911, Glock x 3, FAL and AK and realized after some quick math, I had many thousands of dollars in magazines but it still feels like I don't have enough!

    A gun is nothing but a single shot unless ya have mags for it.
