    Greetings from Modesto, Calif.

    I fired my first shot 61 years ago, at age 7 1/2, with my dad helping me to hold the gun. At age 12 I was in a BB gun marksmanship program at an indoor range at a City of Los Angeles public park.

    Now retired from a 37 year law enforcement career in Northern California. I was lucky to work for an agency that allowed the 1911's as an optional duty weapon. I carried a Colt Combat Commander, series 70, and fired many thousands of rounds through it. Eventually they changed the specs, requiring series 80, so I carried my 1991A1 for the final years of my career.

    It's still necessary to go to the range once a month or so to keep the skills sharp. It remains my opinion to this day that trigger control is the #1 skill, ever in need of practice. With my vision not so good any more I just try to see the same blurry image of a sight picture while putting my best effort into trigger control. When I do that I wind up happy with the grouping on my target.

    Here's how that 1991A1 looks after being carried on patrol for over 13 years in a community that gets heavy annual rainfall: 18-Aug-2017 Colt 1991A1 left side small.jpg

    Thanks for sharing. Your 1991A looks a lot better than I would expect. It looks comfortable and well-cared for.
