"Run by a gun zealot who's too blinded by the NRA" - Sam Penney of

Went to the gun show . . .

So, the Nation's Gun Show returned to D.C. this weekend. Being in the market for a 1911, I decided to head out, the advice of many freshly minted in my mind.

I had, needless to say, a very good day.

Sold one Glock 23 and purchased this sexy NIB SS ORM Colt 1991A1 (that would be New In Box Stainless Steel Old Roll Mark Colt 1991A1)

How's that for some gun porn?

So far, I am super pleased and certain that she's a keeper. First upgrades (coming from the Brownell's Catalogue, of course) includes new rosewood grips and some Chip McCormick Power Mags. I'm gonna throw a new trigger on there too, but am waiting to run through the first 500 rounds before I settle on what I want. I'll post an actual range report later on this week.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts with me, with special thanks to my father in law for helping me out with the finer things in 1911 lore and He Who Shall Not Be Named who spent much of his precious time answering my annoying 1911 newbie questions.
