Cool picture! Love the hat!

Heck of a note. Wasn't all that many years ago that if I wore a mask, I would be stopped and questioned. And some banks still have posted rules that don't want anyone wearing dark glasses. Now, masks can be mandatory. Guess those of the distaff side of life wearing a burka are right in style now.

I figure I'll get lots of "social distancing."

No - I don't really run around like this, just did it for a funny photo. :grin:

Nothing exudes confidence and style like a well worn hat and a Condition One 1911!!

Spent most of my law enforcement career trying to get four primary things done;
1; shotguns to AR-15, about 1995
2 real hats; nope still wearing ball caps or the five point
3. Horse patrol in the big parks;,nope riding quads now.
4. 1911 as an option, 2007- for the last 4 years of my career. I got the first one issued by the Pd.
Never missed my Glock, still don’t.

The hat was black, 4xBeaver Stetson a Christmas present in 1975!

Was fortunate enough to carry a 45 1911 my entire law enforcement career.
Image

I managed to train with, qualify with, and briefly carry a 2.5" S&W Model 19 while I was in detectives. I think I just wanted to be able to say I'd carried a 357 magnum on duty for at least a while. That actually lasted less than a month, and I went back to my 1911. :grin:
Image

I still carry both of those guns, the 1911 most often, the S&W Model 19 time to time. Today it went with me on a 7.5 mile hike. It does weigh a bit less than the 1911, somehow is easier to carry on a hike, but I don't really care that much. I like them both.

Am glad that the 1911 is still going strong, and still seeing use in some law enforcement agencies.

My wife and I went into the bank a few weeks ago, we had an appointment. I didn't wear a mask because it just didn't seem right walking into a bank armed and wearing a mask.
