    1911 .45acp

    Since I don't have guns a very close friend of mine dressed this Citadel full size 1911 .45ACP up with a 1911 Compensator Satin PUNISHER STAINLESS STEEL and a Recover Tactical Grip & Rail System for 1911 by Recover Tactical so here is a before and after. 10643012_10203723666284235_1224053560_o.jpg 10893075_10204423489139369_421037585_o.jpg 10899722_10204423490299398_1754092428_n.jpg

    Nice! It's a good home defense or range gun I'll bet. My daily cc is a Springfield armory compact 1911 A1 with 4" barrel. This one your friend has however looks to be more of a 1911 A1 with the exception of the flat mainspring housing. But they have become so hybridized over the years it's hard to say.

    Sick! 1911 is one of my favorite handguns (although too heavy for my taste). Might pick up a 9mm version someday

    IMG_0067.JPG The compact models really aren't too bad as far as weight, yes they are typically heavier than a Tupperware gun but I like that weight there when I'm pointing it down range. Just a matter of personal preference I suppose. Here's mine that I dressed up with Wilson Combat grips, beaver tail, trigger, hammer spur and full length guide rod.

    If I was lucky enough to own a Handgun and I had that one I would get this for it. Versacarry® | Concealed Carry Holsters | Gun Holster

    I like a GAU-8 and think it would be perfect for Zdiver, of course it needs a whole Warthog as a holster and the magazine reloads are a bitch

    30mm depleted uranium beats a .45 but Hekler's Springfield arms is indeed mighty nice. I just had to tease you guys.

    Cute, Fred. Once Princess flew her first warbird meet with her F4 and P51 she became enamored with the concept of honoring all the old retired pilots with a flying model done in the pilot's old livery. She did the F4 as what her Grampa flew in Korea, and the P51 in the red-tail livery of a Tuskegee Airman who, with his crew chief, lived long enough to see the model fly. Brought tears to their eyes. Her next choice was a A10 flown by a local boy, and we were able to get a lot of close up shots for documentation, then spent a few months engineering a cadcam pattern for the entire model. We were able to get all the necessary outside dimensions and curves and the laser cut balsa and foam parts would have produced an almost perfect 25% scale RC model. We had the balsa and ply cut just a few days before she left, so maybe this year I'll build that plane. The model should be a good flier as the full scale has all the good dimensions of a common sport plane. Oh, and Princess wanted this model done right--no ducted fans, real jet engines, 14'6" wingspan, a big bird.

    As for .45ACP, if it ain't double stack, it's a girl's gun.
