went to buy a 5" Kimber 45

to go along with my PC2. I got to talking to the Mgr. about the better 1911's in front of the Kimber case and he suggested I look at the Ed Brown 1911...he had a fresh order in amounting to several instead of the usual one token pistol. I fell in love with the Stealth Grey Special Forces 45/5"....ended up trading in my S/A MC Operator to ease the pain of the expense...he allowed me 200 less than what I paid for the Springfield on trade in....and 200 off the Ed Brown,thought that was a win win...anyway it has a grey steel frame,black slide,trigger,etc. with grey n black g10 carbon fiber grips and (1) 7rd. mag..no front serration's or rail...clean lines. Now my next Kimber will be a Solo

Go to your photo bucket account and select the picture you want to post.
Copy the code in the box under it that says "direct".
Click on reply to thread on forum then click on the little picture in the tool bar above the message box.
When the box opens for you to paste the URL delete the http:// in the box then paste the code from photo bucket.


I hope I explained that right.

I'm curious why some use PhotoBucket.

When I hit "Reply To Thread" there is a window below that is named "Additional Options" and then a section that says "Attach Files". You press the "Manage Attachments" button, select your image on your computer (or from Photos area on a phone or tablet) and then hit "Upload".....then "Submit" under your text window.

If you hit "Quick Reply" you don't get the additional options. I use a Mac, iPad and iPhone, but platforms aren't really that different anymore. I can't imagine that it is that different on a PC.

Ed Brown 1911 *schwing* Yep, the Brown's make some pretty sweet 1911s. And not cheap. Another "someday" item.
