I finally found somewhere on the internet worth visiting. You gentlemen really no you %$#@ when it comes to the 1911. I'll be visiting often in the future. I'll alo be recommending your site to my fellow shooters and friends.

Thanks for the nice words, I appreciate them.
Welcome to the Forums, it's an interesting place to be.

John I've been on several 1911 forums and yours is by far the best. Some of the others seem to be dead. I'll make a reply and two weeks later get a response. Not so on yours. I have responses in my mail box daily. That's why I call it my second home.
By the way. Have you ever been states side?

My dear friends,
Yes, I've been in the US of A, several times. The first was back in 1982-1983, I lived in NJ for a year, while studying in Stevens Tech, for a Master's Degree. Didn't get it though, family problems forced me to return home.
Since then, I had visited several times on business trips, mostly at the Easter Coast (MA), but I've also been as far as Hawaii, in January 2001 and on the way back home, we stopped at NYC. That was the last time I saw the Twin Towers, unfortunatelly.
As for coming that way again, I certainly want to, but with the conditions of my financials, I am not sure if we can afford it, at least not any time soon. But you never know.
As some of you have probably seen, in another thread, my dream is to organize a 2011 get-together, for all the 1911 aficionados, to celebrate the 100 years of our beloved firearm. I hope I manage to meet at least some of you sooner than that! LoL
Thanks to all for the ncie words by the way.

Maybe by that time I will have hit the lottery and would be able to put you up for a stay John. It's tough having a champagne taste and a beer pocketbook.
