Ok, I am sitting here watching the show Tactical Arms on the sportsman channel.
It is a show that I have watched a few times before, but didn't think much about it. For one thing, I just can't get over the hosts of the show and how it relates to every day actions. Well tonight they are featuring the 1911. For the first half or so of the show it was ok, but then they get to the point where they are talking about care a maintanence of the gun. Well the main host of the show was saying that if you didn't know what certain parts of the gun were or if you didn't know where to lubricate the gun, and that the gun did require special lubrication, that you probably didn't need to be carrying the gun.
Ok, wait a minute. If your gun won't function without special attention, you don't need to be carrying that gun in the first place.
Well shortly after that they were shooting the gun and showing the effective range. Well they got out to 100 yds, and the numb nuts that was saying whether or not you should be actually be using the gun was missing the target all together at 100 yds.
Yea that is pretty far for most pistols but, that just ruined it all for me. 1 if you have to baby a gun, get a different one, 2 if you saying whether or not you should be using one, don't put yourself on tv with the gun and consistantly miss the target.
