    I had both basic and Armor AIT at Ft. Knox in '73. The M1911A1 and .45 acp "grease gun" were our issued personal weapons.

    I qualified expert with the 1911A1 in basic. I'd never really shot pistols much before, but it seemed to fit me just right.

    I continued to carry a 1911 daily for over 25 years, until recent societal conditions seemed to indicate the carry of hi-cap pistols and multiple hi-cap reloads more prudent.

    I still own several 1911's, and they are my hands down all time favorite pistols!

    My Colt Combat Commander has been my constant companion for over 40 years, both during my 20 year law enforcement career and in retirement.

    I can't say that is my testimony. But I can say now that I have it, there is no going back.

    I first qualified with the 1911 at old Camp Mathews in January 1958 and carried this pistol for 4 more years. My last duty station was 2 years at MCRD Parris Island working as coach/instructor training recruits to use this weapon.

    Regards
