    I feel like I'm in New Mexico

    I am blessed living in Idaho but even here we are getting rumbles of bans, special permits, etc... But for the moment I can still walk in with my CCW and purchase a handgun and walk out.

    Is the SA-35 Suited for Modern CCW? An Undercover Cop’s Perspective

    Started my LEO career with a Colt 1911 that had so much play in the bushing alone it sounded like it was falling apart every time you moved. Then a Beratta 96, then a Glock 23 and finally a Springfield 1911. My back up/vest gun was always a little .38 snubby Taurus my parents bought me (still...

    First Look: Springfield 1911 DS Prodigy 9mm

    I do have the C2 and love it but the C is really nice for everyday carry -blessed with an employer who allows CCW and justs fits perfectly with the work I do. Completely unobtrusive.

    1911 Loaded Marine Corp. Operator, CA Compliant

    First, move out of California (CA compliant, uggghhh). ;) Second, heck yeah its a good gun! Go big or go home (if you have the money) is my motto - and that is a SUHWeet 1911. Now just practice, practice, practice...1911 takes some training. Gotta remember to hit that safety! I have 4...

    SimonRL Goes to the Range: The Prodigy Edition

    I have been seeing the same thing Keystone - lots of little issues that should not be happening with a 1600 gun. When I bought my Staccato (not saying they are perfect or anything, but...) it has not misfired, failed to feed or glitched once! That is what I, rightfully, expect for a 2000+ gun...

    Guns of John Wayne Fame — The Original Cowboy Action

    Used to be a deputy in Oregon and one of the guys I worked with met John W as a young man in Nevada. Said it was one of the greatest memories he ever had - took an old Winchester Rifle and W autographed it for him and took a pic. Hung that rifle and photo in his house till the day he died.

    Does your edc have a wml?

    My edc no (Springfield or Staccato C) but my nightstand/home defense yes (Polymer 80 PFC9 with light and optic). I find it uncomfortable to carry a light all day when I dont need it (work day shift - outside). Should probably get a Springfield Operator 5" with rail so my night stand and edc...

    Top 5 Garrison 1911 Holsters

    Dont own a one of them - the holsters, not 1911s. Still a huge Milt Sparks fan, like Alien Gear and also a fan of the Blackpoint Mini Tactical Wing. Seem like good holsters mentioned but think the author needs to widen his view - seems like a lot of better options just from the posts here.

    Does This Gun Prove That John Moses Browning Got the 1911 Wrong?

    AMEN BROTHER!! 45, 10mm, 40, 9mm, 38 Super are all amazing in a 1911 (and others).

    Anyone carry a Mil-Spec 1911? If so let’s talk about the pros and cons

    I EDC a Springfield Garrison in .45 or my Staccato C in 9mm (just change up between the two depending on my mood). Biggest complaint for me on the Mil-Spec models - sights and beaver tail (I prefer the upswept model as opposed to the short Mil-Spec). Have a good holster (Milts Sparks Summer...

    Best holster

    My EDC for my 5" 1911 is a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 that I have loved for 25 years but I also have an Alien Gear that is super comfortable for IWB.
