Thread: New member, pleased to be here!

    New member, pleased to be here!

    Good afternoon people, My name is Dean. Last week I purchased a Detonics Combat Master off of Armslist. The gentleman I purchased the gun from mentioned this site. I like what I see and hear, so here we go. I would give him a honorable mention, but I don't recall his user name. His real name is Jeff, we are both from Kitsap County.

    I purchased my first handgun back around 1980. It was a new S&W 4" stainless model 66 with combat grips. I kept in for a few of years, then sold it, just prior to joining the Navy. I didn't own another gun until mid 1990. I bought a new Taurus model 85, 38 special, in blue, for the wife to have while I was deployed on sea duty. I still have it, but not the wife. From then until late summer of 2012, I had no involvement in guns at all. My re-entry to firearms enthusiasm started when I was selling my boat. The buyer was a $1000.00 short and offered to give me a mint condition Kimber stainless custom raptor II. The addiction was on from there. I now have pistols from Beretta, BUL, Colt, Dan Wesson, Detonics, IMI, Kimber, Ruger, and Sig Sauer, with 1911 being the favorites. That's it for now, stay warm gang!

    Welcome to the madness. Please do not feed the trolls, err you will probably think ALL of them are trolls but well.

    Anyways Welcome!! And your collection sounds like it is well rounded, need to start thinking about what gaps you need to fill in it LOL.

    what is your favorite 1911?

    Thank you, ladies and gentlemen! Shavru, that is a really tough question. I love them all. If I have to pick one, I'd have to say, Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm but only because I can shoot so well with it. It's a true tack driver! Most of my collection is in 45 ACP, my favorite caliber.
