    New Gun Day!

    :D

    Colt Series 70 Gov't Model in .45 ACP.

    Had my eyes peeled for one for a while but certain firearms have been hard to come by lately for some reason...... Stumbled upon this at a bargain price at Sportsman's Warehouse of all places! Even sold me ammo!

    I've had a few 1911s and always found Colt does a great job for the price! A few minor upgrades and all set!

    1911s are the Telecasters of the firearms world! No self respecting grumpy old man should be without one! :D

    My favorite. At almost 71, I'm no longer big on the recoil from a .45ACP. I'm keeping an eye out for one in 9mm.

    Model 1911s truly are fun to shoot.

    Love 1911s and Colts.
    I’m getting licensed for home & personal protection
    I’ve been shooting for close to 60 years
    I agree with the recoil of a .45ACP. I’m looking into the Baretta 92fs for home use and the Nano for concealed carry

    That's a classic. As much an heirloom as a firearm. It's a truly inspired design.

    i've never fired a 1911. i'd love to, sometime.

    i have been fascinated, for no good reason, with a .38 Super for awhile. it would be less recoil. but i don't have no money for guns, i have to buy guitars.

    No giant beaver tail, no extended thumb safety, no competition hammer, no Picatinny rail, no forward serrations... I love what that gun doesn’t have!

    Classic. Congratulations!
