    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Did the same with my revolvers after the old job "went Glock"...I'm still kicking myself too. My wife does claim I'll divorce her before my 2 Colt 1911's go!

    I don't have a 1911 and could not care less about one that cost half as much as the national debt while only resembling what a real John Browning piece of art should be.

    But when the day comes that I do get one, what you have is what i would get. I envy you, and Brown would be proud to see his tradition carying on!
