    Hello From Las Vegas Nevada

    Hello All,

    I'm an NRA Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor in Las Vegas, NV. I have a CCW permit here as well as a few other states. I carry 1911 45ACP. I have been carrying guns most of 30 years and am a former Military Special Operations Team member. I am a veritable cesspool of trivial info about firearms, if anyone has questions feel free to ask.

    Hello Bumper

    I just happened to find out about your site by stepping outside in the rain on Saturday to have a smoke during the SHOT Show and someone had dropped your business card in a puddle, so I copied down the web address and looked you up when I got home. Thank you for creating a site to pass along info as well as somewhere to discuss issues relative to carrying a firearm. I hope to post often and impart my years of accumulated ignorance.

    Now WHO would have done a thing like that?

    Actually, that would have been Nighthawk and I. We put out about 1200 or so cards in little stacks at all of the entrances, pay phones, cash registers of food places, bathrooms, escalators, ashtrays or any other flat surface that would hold one. Most of the were probably thrown away by cleanup people. The ones out at the smoking areas would have been mine, I had to spend some time out there every once in awhile feeding my habit.

    Glad to hear you actually found one of our cards and used it to find us.

    I will two well known people to state my thoughts on using the 1911 for self defense.

    JEFF COOPER’S PEARLS OF WISDOM:
    "The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.”

    CLINT SMITH ON THE 1911
    “The 1911 remains popular because it’s an efficient tool. In more than 30 years of experience, I’ve met more competent, serious gunmen who carry 1911’s than those who pack any other handgun. They are professionals – policemen, government agents and others who carry handguns daily because the know their live may depend on it…Me? I’ve carried a 1911 every single day for the past 20 years. It’s a very comforting gun to have at your hip. It offers a good, consistent single-action trigger pull and is wonderfully dependable. Because the 1911 is basically a defensive handgun, I’m not concerned about tight groups. I don’t bother with expanding hollowpoints that could cause feeding problems. For absolute reliability, I shoot only high-quality ball ammunition. That big .45 slug doesn’t have to expand to be effective.”

    1911 Customs Rule!!! I won't carry anything else. You know the saying don't go to a gunfight with anything less than a caliber starting with a .4

    Absolutely Nighthawk, I posted the "Rules for a Gunfight" in CCW and Tactical Training.
    That is one of them.
    1911 users are the pros, everything else is close but no cigar. LOL
