    1) First 1911 was a commercial Colt in .38 Super. Paid $50 for it in 1959. Later traded it for a Ruger .357 Mag revolver.

    2) Most memorable 1911 was a commercial Colt in .45 ACP accurized by Al Dinan with a BoMar Low Profile rib on it. Used it in Bullseye competition during late '60s and early '70s. Stupidly sold it when I quit competing. BAD DECISION!!!!!!!!!

    3) Favorite 1911 is my Wilson Classic .45 ACP with stainless frame, black ArmorTuff slide, S&A magwell, adjustable sights, and Esmeralda grips.

    Kimber Custom II, it was a good pistol, looked pretty sharp with some Wilson goodies on it.

    Depending on how the next few months go, I'll be buying an STI.

    Alan,
    Thought you were going to have surgery today and be out for several days. Are you SuperMan or did the surgery get postponed?

    First one was my Kimber Custom TLE II in 2002(?). I have two other 1911's in addition to the Kimber now, but the TLE is still my favorite after thousands of rounds through it. The most accurate and best-shooting pistol I have ever owned in 35+ years of shooting.

    The first one I qualified with in the Army. They were getting rid of them and I asked the armorer if he could just "lose" one. Man I hated returning that one!
