Hi from NH

Hi guys,
Been shooting since I was 5. I'm 53 now. 1911s are my favorites to shoot. Believe it or not, my best shooting 1911 for the last 20 years has been my IAI M-6000 (made in Israel) that was only $550 new back in the early 90s. 1" @ 25 yards, and never had a malfunction. It's loaded with Ed Brown parts, but it's a great shooter.

I've had Springfields, and Colts, but always ended up selling them. I've always wanted a Kimber after shooting a friend of mines back in the 90s.

I've now got a Kimber Custom II in two tone. What a sweet shooting 1911. Can't wait to get a few thousand rounds through it. I understand why you guys love these

Here is the new toy with the old one.
