PSH don't listen to these guys nothing wrong with 1911 in 9mm :tongueout: even thought any excuse to get a new gun is a good excuse in my book.

Should I be "sorry about that" or happy for you? Never shot a 9mm 1911 has to be really nice.

did it for IDPA thinking lower recoil would help my lack of eyesight, skill, and accuracy

nice idea, but....:embarassed:

And with a name like outcast to boot. :rofl:I don't think he was raggin' on him, as much as maybe he's a diehard and thinks that 1911's should only be in .45ACP and also might think that a 1911 should be a Govt. size.

Yeah, I get that...it's just getting old when someone pisses in the punchbowl. Dude posts pics and is liking his gun. Some jackoff has to post what he doesn't like about it. Oh no....a 9mm, blah blah blah. Just gets old.

I hear ya Paul. Just say congrats and move on, or just don't say anything and move on. I'm not a fan of the parade pissers either.

Couldn't agree more. If you don't approve of someone's choice of gun or caliber, move on. No need to sh1t on someone's parade. It's just completely uncalled for. Hell, Brian doesn't like non-.45, railed, or shortbarrel 1911s, but yet he always says "congrats" or something. Some people have class, some don't.

I sort of think he was just joking a bit. I can't really think he was serious.
I'd like to see more pictures where we can see the gun closer, and both sides.
Looks beautiful.

I agree with your comment 100% if its not the brand there *****ing about its the caliber, or the holster or its stainless instead of blued.
The real problem is most are so inmature they cant see past anything except what they have, or have read or heard someone else say

Nice Colts. I Like the presentation box too.

Should I be "sorry about that" or happy for you?

Your first comment didn't bother me, but this is too much.

I have said it before, and I will say it again. GT gets dumber when school is out. :shakehead:

I was joking and I believe the OP caught it, the 1911 is a great platform for any caliber.

No worries. Apologies for jumping on you. There's been an abundance of trolls in here lately doing nothing but posting crap to stir the pot.

As for the "Sorry" post I made, OP had said because of guys like me he was having a 45 built. I am happy that he has the money to build such impressive pistols and actually shots them. Doc540 my comments where in jest and in no way ment to put down your pistols.

No offense taken....been online long enough to grow thick skin.

Well, getting old does that, too.:embarassed:

Now, regarding the money thing....I can squeeze an eagle with the best of them, so don't go thinking I have a lot of money.

I'll end up with less than half of what a true, custom Brown, Nighthawk, or Baer would cost.

I just shot my first 9mm 1911 today.

All I can say is that I've been missing out for a looong time.

That thing is a hoot to shoot.

Commanders are my favorite, you spent your money well on the 9mm, the 45 doesn't look like it needs as much work start to finish. Great pics in the presentation box.

Due to the slightly shorter cycle length in the Commander it's always been my theory, backed by years of observation , that the 9mm commanders with good magazines run better than the 45's.. This applies only to the COLT versions...

It came out of Louisiana so I think either Shelby Stanga or Glenn Guist might have kept it under the seat of their truck. :supergrin:

Sorry for my response, didn't mean to pile on, i opened the 1911 forum to get away from all the crap that is posted in the General Forum, and i got a little carried away.
I don't even own a gun in the 1911 platform !
However i do own 6 handguns all by different manufactures, 4 different calibers, 4 auto loaders & 2 wheel guns.
Depending on who you ask none of them are any good:popcorn:
