I bought my Springer 1911 Loaded as a nightstand gun, with night sights ... it's an excellent gun for that purpose, way too heavy for me to consider carrying .. I do occasionally carry my Kimber UCII, light and small enough to easily conceal under a shirt or jacket ... 1911 is just a wonderful platform, lots of fun shooting ... if you get rid of yours, you'll regret it ...
"The gun has been called the great equalizer ... It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." --Ronald Reagan
