Howdy..and welcome to the club! I'm partial to the 1911 myself no matter what I've told here. Standard issue in 1982.
It's something I'll never completely shake. Just like riding a bicycle.
So you want a holy war? How many holes would you like?

Greetings from Richmond/Rosenberg, TX
And thank you for your service. If not for people like you we'd be speaking German (or Japanese) today.
G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.
