    Good read if you're into history

    These several posts are by a friend of mine, a true authority and collector (several of his pistols are pictured in Charles Clawson's books on M1911s/M1911A1s and Commercial Government Models). I found it fascinating.

    That was a great read. Too bad I couldn't see the photos.

    Amen... I love stories like that, but they'd be so much richer with the pics. I'll just use my active imagination for now.

    OD, thanks for posting!

    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
