aside from the natural beauty of JMB finest achievment, what I have most enjoyed is looking at everyone's grips!
I've got a few, but this one is the one I grab the most:
Made in the US, excellent finish and balance. Once broken in (it DOES take >500+ rounds) I think this is one of the better 1911 platform pistols out there. Certainly more "bang for the buck" than many others. Opinions are going to vary here I am sure, but I'll put the PARA up against any other pistol for a "carry gun". Indeed the offerings from Baer and Wilson are way fine, but I'm not a competition pistol shooter. I'm a trap/sporting clays fan. So where I will spend silly amounts of money on a shotgun for competition, I won't for a sidearm. Point being..if you are looking for an everyday defensive pistol....PARA just might be a good choice. BTW...their Customer Service bites; pray you never need it.
Love the 1911 mine is a 1991 serie

A immediate post-World War II Colt Government Model
The Model 1911 was not the first Colt .45 Automatic. Just for fun a shabby-looking example of an uncommon model, the Colt Model 1905.
Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom!
