1911s, only had one and was was a squirrel to shoot. Groups all over. I'd only be happy < 25 yds
My M29 S +W I can flip woodchucks at 75 yds . So it's not me
Pistol hunting woodchucks, great practice in stalking and marksmanship............

How's the condition of those 1K guns?
" The Civilian Marksmanship Program last year announced it would sell 10,000 of the legendary pistols that have been in Army stocks for decades to collectors. But that number has dropped to 8,000 for this year as of a recent posting by CMP.
Thing is, not all of the 8,000 to be made available will be up for purchase by those select few who’re given the go ahead. Instead, some have been deemed “unusual and worthy of being auctioned,” according to the CMP website."
" The CMP will randomly pick “winners” for the surplus 1911s on Oct. 5, where customers will be contacted and be allowed to select the grade of pistol they wish to purchase.
The pricing is as follows and includes shipping:
Service Grade $1,050: Pistol may exhibit minor pitting and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips are complete with no cracks. Pistol is in issuable condition.
Field Grade $950: Pistol may exhibit minor rust, pitting, and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips are complete with no cracks. Pistol is in issuable condition.
Rack Grade $850: Pistol will exhibit rust, pitting, and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips may be incomplete and exhibit cracks. Pistol requires minor work to return to issuable condition.
Auction Grade: The condition of the auction pistol will be described when posted for auction. Note: If you have already purchased a 1911 from CMP you will not be allowed to purchase an auction 1911. If you purchase an auction 1911, your name will be pulled from the sequenced list. No repeat purchasers are allowed until all orders received have been filled.

New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
That's discouraging but not unexpected. When this news initially broke I was interested since the 1911 is my favorite pistol but the condition I'd want would likely be more than I'd feel comfortable paying. I'm about 40-50 years too late for the deals/firearms I really want - lol!
You will notice everyone has a Wilson SS mag in it.
