Your 1911 collection by itself is larger than my entire gun collection! How do you have the time to shoot them all? Which is your favorite?

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

I'm not sure I have a favorite, but the Infinity may be the one I shoot the best.

I stole the description from one of bac's posts at another forum, so it is actually his.

Amazing collection sir, to say the least!

Are there any in there that you don't care for, or wouldn't recommend?

This collection is in one word "SIC".

Gotta be the biggest one I've seen.

Thanks for posting.

I hope that the guys who have 2 or 3 guns and mention that their wives complain and ask why they need "all those guns", get to see this pic...

It's still not a serious 1911 collection without a couple 38 Supers.

wow! my 1911 is an only child, but not for long.

Any bets that the number of holsters and spare mags exceeds the number of 1911s?

If you have to ask yourself why someone would own an excessive amount of spare mags and holsters for a so many guns with the same form factor and are deemed to be interchangable... well its hard to explain.
