Pimp my 1911

I love cool grips, but this is a bit much. I could buy one helluva lot of ammo for that price!!

9 mm may expand, but .45 ACP doesn't shrink!

I think they're fugly, and would probably throw the balance of the gun way off. You could have a helluva custom 1911 built for that kind of money.

Now, there's a group of civic-minded intellectuals pondering their next humanitarian deed.

Doubtful any of them possess the meger mechanical skills necessary to actually change grips on a 1911. But I'm sure with the proceeds from dope and 'ho's, they could probably afford them.

Like the $450.00 pocket knives, $7500.00 1911 and $65,000.00 pick-up trucks .... As my wise old man used to say, "Some people have more money than brains"

I still remember seeing my first Plasma TV at Circuit City ...$9000.00+ and it was only something like 38". Anyone remember the early microwave ovens? ...The Radar Range...$500.00...I bought a new micro range for my TV room, for popcorn, for $34.00 ...Walmart.
