I have a few things to say about that

The first thing is... you have 61 of them... so maybe we could do eachother a favor and you could give me 1 of them, then you'll be back at an even 60.

2nd... If I had bought every 1911 I have ever held or even looked at, I would still probably NOT have 61 of them.

I have 1 right now and I'm really really trying to find a way to save the $1600 I need for the 2nd one I want...

and last but not least....... Which one is your favorite???! lol

Thanks for sharing your picture

What about a picture of the other side?

(I can wait for the day or two it will take you to turn them all over!)

And I thought that I liked 1911s!

You could post these pics a million times and it will still take me a good five minutes to drool each time. How long does it take you to pull em into presentation mode anyways? Awesome collection. Are any up for sale???

SWEEEEET!

Dog gone am I jealous of that collection. How do you store such a huge amount of handguns? Do you collect other handguns also? I sure wish I could afford a collection that. Alas I was born good looking instead of rich.
