WW-1's are fetching a pretty high price these days. Especially if they are in nice shape. Here is my Springfield Professional. This is the actual FBI SWAT and HRT model. It's complete with the custom shop four digit serial number. They are special order and it took a buddy and I one year each to get ours. Yes, I really have one of these 1911's! This is the real FBI thing! I told you guys I wasn't an amateur ! LOL LOL LOL

You see the oil on the slide stop OP?^^^ That is something that no one has spoken of yet. Always field strip your firearm after shooting it for a complete and thorough cleaning. Wipe it down with a oily rag when you aren't using it at the moment. The last thing you want is RUST! I just forgot to wipe it off for the camera! LOL

I just thought of another one women seem to really like. A HK P7PSP that are a 8+1 single stack 9MM. They are gas operated, very-very accurate and have little recoil. The pistol remains safe until you squeeze the cocking lever. Thus readying the weapon for firing. Mine is a West German Police trade-in circa 1985. They are fairly rare but a large shipment has recently hit the states in all conditions. At the time this was one of, if not the most expensive pistols to ever manufacturer. Every major part is machined instead of MIM or cast. It's a extremely high quality firearm that many gals seem to really like for it's ease of firing and accuracy potential even for the novice shooter. Women in the gun shops who have fired one of these seem to favor them. That's why I listed this one as well. You can get them in surplus varying conditions with prices that are nearly half of what they sold for new. Something to consider maybe.

I am not so sure dating the pics today is the wisest idea. Are the rivers not frozen over, so bad you can't have a most deadful canoing accident?

When I post pics I tend to post stuff that confuse the begeepers out of any moderns.

You don't see any serial numbers do you? Yeah, thought of that already! See the electrical tape over the Benelli's? I might have been born at night but it wasn't last night! "For thieves reading"!
