Iam not a 1911 fan by no means. If the moon turned blue and Texas did the open carry.....The 1911 would be the only I carried. Full size. In 45 or 38super. Fixed sights. Nickle or stainless. Engraved If i could afford it. Handmade by me......Basket weave, oil finish, red or blue suede lined holster. Maybe a few conchos made of mexican coins for the belt. Grips in mesquite wood, mammoth tooth, or Ram horn. Maybe Lucite with a black widow or piss colored scorpion cased inside. With silver(not chrome) grip back panel. Similar to the examples at the Texas Ranger museum. What would you carry?
