    Talking 1911-original 911

    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed John Brownings best design has the 911 designation in it? 1911=1st-911? 1911A1=1st-911 always 1st responder. Okay, I admit it, I'm twisted and see things differently. LOL

    Yeah kind of like dialing 911 now your not sure if they'll be there in time. 1911 your not sure if its going to stove pipe or malfunction. HEHEHEHEHEHEH Dont' Hit me

    Don't worry just stirring the Pot!!!

    Don't worry I'll add a 1911 to the collection after one of my plastic guns breaks.

    O crap that may not be till my grand children's grand children are dead.

    No but seriously I actually am looking at a Taurus 1911 or a S/A gun just to have one. There pretty sweet just I don't want to have to program myself for a new trigger.

    Wink Rob, youv'e been a baaaaad boy! LOL

    I won't hit you. I'm afraid you might like that sort of thing. LOL

    In all my time in the service I've never had FTF or stovepipe when I needed it. I have had it do both in training but the clearing drill is fast and simple. Sorta like me only I'm slow and simple.

    Of course my EDC is a 220, 226 and a compact 1911 as my 2nd bug.

    When I'm practicing on private property, I'll sometimes put the Gov't Model and the PT-99 side by side, loaded and chambered; Colt in condition 1, Taurus in condition 2, and then practice grabbing one without looking and firing 2-3 shots at about a 10yd target. It doesn't take long before the difference between DA/SA and SA only matters less than the recoil difference between 9mm and .45ACP.
