Obama Signs NDAA Bill To Allow Sale of Surplus 1911 Pistols to Public
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Doesn't sound like him.

They're probably implanting tracking devices into them somewhere hard to find.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

The original 1911 (and A1) magazine was only intended to hold 7 rounds of ammunition, which is acceptable in some states that dictate magazines capacities to be 10 rounds or under.  At what price would they be sold (the 1911 price would be nice)?"  Only serious collectors will be able to afford them, I think.

The original 1911 (and A1) is a C&R pistol.

Now, how about all those M1 Garands that were rejected for import?  How many of those have been used in mass shootings.  The M1 Garand used an 8-round en bloc clip, is also a C&R rifle, and is highly collectible for those that can afford them.  At the prices of these "relics," I sure cannot afford one.

And, don't expect the "best of the best." Those will be distributed early on within the supplier's own house.
