    My two carry 1911 5" Government Models (what are your carry 1911's?)

    I traded a couple of semi-automatic handguns. One was a 1911 that I really liked.

    After some range work, I am comfortable with this as the permanent car gun (it stays there).

    Colt Gold Cup Trophy (2010 production):




    This is my new carry weapon. I found it locally as an used gun. It has a few issues including the light idiot scratch. Nonetheless, I can fire it with confidence. It's a good one:

    Just sold my SA RO champion that I carried for a CZ compact. Nuts, missed the pic boat by a couple months on that one

    I've carried a few of my 1911s including my Gold Cups. The Colt Combat Commander I carried for years got retired to the safe after I bought the Para Lightweight Commander.

    I have a RIA 1911 tactical. Don't really carry it, but I like to shoot it. I carry my XD MOD2 subcompact 45acp though. Nice 1911's everyone!

    Nighthawk Falcon II in 45 ACP with a Crimson Trace Master grip laser, Mitch Rosen shoulder holster in cordovan and shark, loaded with Federal HST ammo. Why would you carry anything else if this rig was available?

    I don't always carry a 1911. But, when I do, it's a simple SA 1911-A1 in 9mm ... or a RIA 1911-A1 in .45 ACP. Either one is fine. Will say, the 9mm gets more use for the simple reason it has a tad more capacity and is less expensive to shoot. That makes a difference when it comes time for practice. Sincerely. bruce.

    After cutting range grass on a tractor, the Rock ultra 10mm looked like this:

    Shot off a mag of Double Tap 125gr all copper JHPs (~1600fps) to clean it up before entering the house. Very reliable.

    I've carried various 1911s for years in all the major calibers at one time for another... 38 Super, 10mm and 45 auto and they have always delivered when needed.

    The Ruger gets carried most often...at least three times a week. The Regent only gets out about once a week. Love 'em both.
