I've had new-gun-fever lately and I've been eyeing those for a little while.
I picked up a new P227 Nitron (basically a 226 in .45) and I absolutely love it. It's probably my favorite firearm.

The 1918 Colt Model of 1911 I have is iconic. They were also all made with fairly soft slides. The breech faces tend to peen; no breech face plug pistols were made during that time, and locally hardened slides were not available for many years after it was made.

The 1920 Colt is a fine pistol... in .32 ACP.

I'd have to choose good sense over romanticism, if it ever came to that.

Similar to the 226 but in .45 ACP, to hell and back reliability and far more accurate than a Glock.

When are you going to post up a pic of your 94 -Z28?

Thats what I figured but wanted to see if there were any issues to look for since its the lower model. Probably pick it up next weekend if the mrs wants it. As far as my Z goes, didn't think anyone would care to see it since this is a 5th gen site. Its mostly garage stored anymore. Ill post a pic when i get to my computer. For some reason, i cant post pics from my cell.

I would definitely go with a soft ...like an uncle mikes. I carry an XDS 3.3 single stack and purchased a DeSantis in leather...completely un-usable hurts a lot.

Uncle mikes sidekick - the black one I actually bought for an XD 4" .40, but it just isn't a great IWB gun, but it works really good for the XDS 3.3", as you can see it fully envelops the gun so everything is soft that touches your skin - you could get the correct size and probably still be much easier to carry.

Now the Desantis is nice, quality etc. but I like to carry IWB getting in and out of my car, and the stiff leather and gun pinching me an all when in the car...not good. Love the Uncle Mikes though, night and day as far as comfort.

Also, for everyone I highly recommend going single stack for concealed as Fen did, many affordable polymer types out there - glock is making a single stack now as well, but I went with Springfield just cuz I already had one. XDS comes in 9mm or .45 - i have the 9 round extension, it has three mag configs 7, 8 or 9. Don't know what .45 has, but probably 1 less per config.

I just realized you said tuckable - the desantis pictured is...but i'd try to find one soft. If you are interested in my desantis, PM me.

Nice collection there PT

Picked this up a little while ago, Baer Thunder Ranch Commanche, not made any longer and I managed to find this unfired by the original owner.

That is a very nice Les Baer. The pic I posted is only about 1/3 of the pistols I have and obviously none of my long guns, but I don't think I have anything as nice as that Les Baer. My wife has very expensive taste in handguns. Most of her handguns are 1911s (including the Kimber and EMP in the pic). I hope she does not see this thread and want a Les Baer too.

Oh Ya! - Lots of love for the Ed Brown 1911's they shoot so smooth, like a knife through butter

I only have one Brown right now though post #6594

Lol.......I know the feeling, my wife shoots a full size 1911 Baer in 9mm with the 1.5" accuracy guarantee and I am here to tell you she can shoot it.

I have the 220 in full stainless. It's heavy, but the little bit of extra weight is fantastic to absorb some of the recoil from the .45 round. I've never used the other versions of it. It's probably my favorite Sig, but the 226 is a very close second.

Wow! Man that is nice looking. I got to admit, I was a little worried about buying a 1911 for $$$$, but all that went away as soon as I went to the range for the first time. Now I am HOOK! Saving up for them is rough though lol because I'm like camaro go faster, 1911, camaro go faster, 1911...

Nice but the Mrs doesn't want it. She said she can shoot my gun?!? Pfft! We'll have to talk about that hun. On a good note, I can use that intended mula for a nice 5.56 rifle.
