    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Which is older, a blow back design or a 1911 design?

    I am impressed with the age of the designs and the sheer age of some of the firearms listed here.

    Oldest design I have is a 1894 Winchester lever gun.

    To not carry a firearm and need one is avoidable and sometimes fatal stupidity

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Blow back is older than the 1911. Browning's first commercially successful pistol was the FN Model 1900 (which was an improved Model 1899, also Browning's).

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Maybe everyone else just wanted to let you win Hotguns

    I'm kind of surprised no one said they have any wheel lock weapons, although the mechanisms in those could be kind of fragile. And no mention either of weapons from the East, like Janissary muskets, or some of the really cool looking old Muslim firearms. But I suppose things like that are kind of hard to get ahold of, and replicas might night have too big of a market.

    My oldest, bestest is a 1903 Colt. John M. Browing's precurser to the great 1911. Mine was made in 1907. The leather holster that I got with it has a price tag inked on the back...$1.27

    Ain't no fun when the rabbit has a gun!
