Guys, during my long life, I've owned two 1911s. The first was a Colt Government model and the second was a Combat Commander, both in .45acp. I have not had a 1911 for forty years.

I plan to purchase several sets of grips for the RO and actually change them from time to time to suit my mood. Thank God for grip screws.

I couldn't last a week without a 1911. I'd probably have those, what do yer call 'em, phantom pains. Why, I have a ball disco mounted on my living room ceiling.

A "ball disco mounted on my living room ceiling"? Ain't it kinda hard to reach way up there? And just what does a ball disco do, anyway? Wait, that's OK, I'm not sure I want to know.

Ball disco (not as much fun as a disco ball for most folks):
