Hello everyone!

I'd like to say how very proud I am to be a part of this community and to show off what I hope will be a great success - all inspired by my very first 1911 I ever owned - a Taurus PT1911AR.

I had wanted to own a 1911 for a number of years, but a combination of things always kept me from achieving ownership. One afternoon, while sitting at the computer, I had come across TexasGunTrader.com and what was to be my first of many 1911 pistols.

In a short period of time thereafter, I fell so in love with that gun, that it inspired me to take a leap into the unknown and start a business creating my unique touch on an already magnificent weapon. Here I am now, working hard to achieve that slice of American Pie, and I hope to share my dreams with the guys who helped get it all started - the members here on TaurusArmed.net.

I hope to contribute to this forum and look forward to getting to know all of the members!

If in the meantime you'd like to say hello back, feel free to visit us on our website and leave a comment on our blog, or visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/EagleCustoms!

I'm a proud owner of 3 Taurus 1911s myself - all railed versions. All of which are as accurate as any competitor and draw lots of attention. 2 feature the gold accessories and garner all kinds of comments in the forms of compliments to snide remarks about "pimping" or "Bar-B-Que." I thank and share them with admirers, and to the naysayers - I show them my targets and grouping. I have to say, more than one convert has happened after that :)

Welcome from Northern Illinois!

I shoot my PT 1911 in our local USPSA sanctioned matches and could easily place consistently in the top third with it if I did my part :(. I have just a couple of mods with a single sided safety, extended slide stop and S & A magwell added. I was having some issues with inconsistent magazine release which required some judicious filing to the opening of the S & A magwell.

EXCELLENT early (but not first) post! This gun forum appears to be the anti-dote to reprehensible places like GlockTalk or AR15.com. I found another site which I also cherish - XDTalk forum. Those people are really terrific too.
