    Who bought a new 1911 in 2011 to celebrate 100 years of the finest workhorse ever made? and what did you buy?

    I bought the kimber tactical pro ll in 4"...love it!

    It wasn't a new 1911, but it was new to me. Got this from Pinkhamr this year. Very nice. Ive even been told by a few 1911 fans that say the trigger on it has had some real nice work done to it.

    Didn't have enough funds this year to purchase one. I really wanted too. If I ever sold my '69 Beetle, I might have taken some of that money there to buy one.

    Traded my glock 21 for a very fine Detonics combat master in .45. Love that gun now.

    To celebrate the 100th birthday of the 1911, in 2011 I bought a Remington 1911R1

    Its just the entry level Custom II with some nice trigger work done to it. It wasnt that much really. Pinkhamr gave me a great deal.
