    Just ran across this article where the DoD is going to be selling off some pistols... and some people here might be interested.

    "The U.S. Army Is Selling Some of Its Most Powerful Guns (and You Can Buy One)

    The .45 ACP M1911A1 pistol has served the U.S. armed forces for more than a century in every war zone and hotspot on the planet — and thanks to this year’s federal defense budget, it will serve civilians for the foreseeable future."
