To be honest, I am a plastic fantastic fan myself, but I cannot call a plastic gun beautiful … Glock guns simply are not beautiful. The 1911 is a beautiful gun. TFB reader Sean managed to buy this beauty for a very good price in the used section of his local gun store.
This is my favorite pistol currently, aside from my Dan Wesson. It’s a STI 2011 Custom with a bull barrel, stippled grip, double stack of course in .45. I thought you guys might enjoy this, I lucked out and found it in a “used” section of a local gun store (I live down the road from STI). It had never been fired aside from testing before I owned it.
