Hi from Arkansas!

I've never owned a gun and I've only shot a couple => a Daisy and Red Rider :biglaugh:

I guess I'll work my way through the forum to find the history of the 1911 to present time, so I can make a somewhat educated purchase...

If anyone can point me to some cool background info (or purchasing help) on the 1911 that would great!

That's exactly the info I was looking for! Awesome, thanks.
Welcome! The 1911 is a great platform with what can be an intimidating array of choices and options. Enjoy the research!
Thanks....you're not kidding on the choices and options! Definitely a bit confusing and intimidating.
A cool book to read is, 1911 The First 100 Years by Patrick Sweeney.

I bought it last year read through it and flipped through it several times since
I was just looking at that book on Amazon. Thanks flatline!
