I'm brand new here (even though I'm pushing 60), and am glad to have found you guys. Although I have owned a variety of handguns in my life (including carrying a Colt 45 in Vietnam), I am about to purchase my first 1911; a Wilson CQB Elite. Thru the years, I have heard and read of many "problems" with the 1911, most I am sure are urban legends. However, anything man-made comes with that human falicy (sic). So, shooters, what are some things that I should lookout for and be prepared to encounter? :scratch: Thanks for being here!
