    New in SoCal

    Hi everyone. Just joined from behind enemy lines. Long time 1911 fan beginning with inheriting my uncles USMC WWII piece to current WC CQB and just acquired Sig C3 for carry. Yes - I have a CCW in CA.

    Welcome to our forum from Northern Italy.

    Classic collectible "USGI 1911s", full size "SIG Sauers" and "CZ" sport pistols have always been among my favourite guns.
    For the range I have mainly owned 1911s, CZs, and half a dozen SIG Sauers; great guns especially older German-proofed ones, the SIG Sauer P226 to me is probably the most reliable pistol that I have owned in over 38 years of shooting handguns, and I've seen enough makes and models, in all service calibers, to know what to trust and what not to.
    I collected for years, then I realized that an ever-taller pile of guns made my life no happier, so I decided to take a hiatus from it, I started to thin my collection and decided to enjoy the too many guns that I already had in my safe.
    So no more new guns for a while, but since I'm still a big 1911 enthusiast I decided to keep my small collection of 1911s, and reserve mainly my P226 and the Shadow 2 for the range.
    With guns I love learning with enthusiasm something new almost every day.
    After more than 38 years of guns-ownership and reloading, I still enjoy shooting steel plates and going to the range at least twice a week.
    JMO this is one of the best gun forums among the several I belong to, to me it's quite a learning experience, I hope you'll enjoy your time here.

    Life is good.

    Before you start collecting 1911s .... buy books! Don't collect something that you'll be forever making excuses for, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, and buy the gun not the story.

    Hi, Rick. I'm in SoCal. I've got a Government Model, a Commander, a bunch of Hi-Powers, and one Sig. Where do you like to shoot?

    I'm in the L.A. area. Looks like you might be south of me. But maybe we'll meet some day. I'm not in the coffee business, unless you count the coffee drinking business.
