    I wish this would explode as a movement.

    I'd like to see more products made in America.

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    But the U.S. government has to want it too.

    as long as the product is manufactured on par with its foreign competitors I have no problem paying a little more for american. unfortunately this isn't always the case.

    Wait a minute!! We are in business.

    Guns, ammo, and accessories are one of the only things I can think of that are produced here. We need more gun owners, and carriers.

    Thank you for posting this story. It moved me a little and makes me feel good about some of the choices I have made. I would love this movement to catch fire and help some folks. This link from the Military arms channel is among the same lines with regards to the new US service pistol. I agree with his choice too!

    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    Just as the Military made known that they were going to 9mm (due to the fact that it had a larger capacity and was NATO friendly), Para-Ordnance came out with a new .45 frame. The grip was 1/8th of an inch wider than the 1911, and therefore could accomodate a double stack of ammo. There was the answer to the capicity discrepancy. MOST of the parts of the 1911 were interchangable with this frame. All we would have had to do was buy the frames and had the armorers switch over the innards from the "obsolete" .45.

    This Para 13 rounder feels better in the hand to me. A nice fat grip.

    As to the NATO friendly argument......as General McArthur would say...NUTS!

    Think of the money we would have saved and still had a better firearm.

    General Anthony McAuliffe, acting commander of the 101st Airborne Division during the seige of Bastogne, famously said "Nuts" in response to a German demand for surrender.

    "Nice fat grips" may fit you, but the military is made up of people of all sizes. The relatively thick grip of the M9 has been a complaint from some.

    And yes, of course, interoperability with our allies is something that should be dismissed out of hand....

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Yes, well, that's certainly a compelling argument.
