The only thing better than the 1911 gun is S&W revolvers and not by a whole lot.

Actually I just purchased my first Wilson Combat not long ago. When looking I always figured my first Wilson Combat would be something in Stainless Steel. I actually came across the Classic Supergrade and the 40th Anniversary CQBE when searching. The Classic Supergrade had everything I wanted and the bonus was that I wouldn't have to wait.

I chose the Supergrade but I just could not get the other out of my head. I decided to get that one as well.

I guess since it is a Ruger forum I will stay with Ruger. Below my two 5 inch. A SR1911 from 2012 and a recent SR1911-10 on the bottom. Aftermarket grips from shopruger.com on both.



And three cute SR1911CMDs. The 2013 SR1911-CMD on top has the "delta" grips that are now on the 10mm by the way. A Night Watchman from 2014 in all steel in the middle and a CMD-LW from 2015 on the bottom.



As a shooty collector I usually do small groups with a theme. Like my 10mm 1911s. A "Commander" size from DW on the left. Then a 1990 Colt Delta Gold Cup. Then the Ruger SR1911-10. On the right is a DW Bruin in 10mm.

Answers will vary by individual experience. My old man carried one throughout World War II and I read a lot of Sergeant Rock comic books. That was enough.

I had sold off some really fine guns to get the 1911s, but wish that I hadn't now.

I know I only have three but for me its fairly simple. I'm old school and when I was growing up there were no plastic fantastic guns unless of course you count the M16. In fact anything made from plastic was considered cheap. I still consider plastic fugly and cheap. Although my 1911s can't be considered traditional I do much prefer 1911s and revolvers in either DA or SA and my rifles with wood stocks. When I think Semi Auto 1911 is the first thing that comes to mind.

I'm with you 100%. Age here is 73, and I Appreciated Firearms as long as I can Remember, even the toy ones. I qualified with the 1911A1 back in the 60s during my Tour with the Army. They also introduced me to my first High Power Rifle the M14 of which I own several Semi versions today. I never saw an M16 until I returned to the States, From Duty in Germany for Discharge in 1967. I used to Carry a SS Colt Officer Model, but as my Age Progressed, it started to get too heavy on my Hip. As much as I hate to admit it, my Present Carry Weapon is a Glock 26.

I'm a little younger at 58 so when I entered the service the M16 was my first assigned weapon in the military. Although I get why a glock would be a practical gun I just don't like the whole plastic thing for so many different reasons. Besides I not only want something that functions I also like things that can be enjoyed and admired as well. Always puts a little smile on my face when that happens to be the case.

^^^^This^^^^

Pure function is a good thing and I admire it in and of itself. However, there's also validity to wanting an aesthetic element too. Asthetics can be anything from fit and finish to old school engineering and nostalgia. 1911s are like that. They've stood the test of time and are still relevant because they work extremely well and have a certain panache attributable to their history and how they're made.

Bottom line, I just like them. That's it. No further explanation required.

Well, you know what the gov't thinks of handguns here lol, so no big collection. I have a Wolverine Tactical Stainless and a Springfield.... Went out to a shoot recently and my choice of handgun put me in the "Classic" division Olde as heck too, but just because I don't need 17 rounds to hit 6 targets...

If I can't tote it and/or shoot it, I can admire it, but I can't enjoy it. I do have some Rugers and I also have some Glocks. Love the Rugers more, but shoot them less.

1911s never go out of style. Young RSO came up to me at the range today as I shot my Springfield Mil-Spec. Said he owns 7 1911s and plans to get a WW II issue one, come what may in terms of price.

The design is just that iconic. 7 or 8 rounds will more than do the job for me, since I've so much experience with the platform in varying conditions. It's just that good a gun.

OK onw 1911 doesn't make a 'collection'. No matter, it's a Ruger, it's a 1911 and it's mine, all mine. And, not to put a fine point on it, it gives me great pleasure every time I shoot it...
