    Practice with the 1911 and your brain and your conscious & subconscious mind will not ever fail you.

    I know that this kid is a savant BUT, look at what his brain is capable of doing and remembering and then try and rationalize how you cannot remember that your firearm has a Thumb Safety.

    Stress. Give me a break. Tie that bull up outside.

    Get familiar with the 1911 & every time you take it out of the holster and every time you re-holster - you'll know that the Thumb Safety is there...and you'll also remember right where it's located.

    It's always Right There where your doggone thumb is. Wow! That is SO easy to forget.

    A Colt 1911 is not a fighter jet. It is the simplest and most basic of machines. My toaster is far more complicated.

    Like driving a stick. You don't forget to stomp the clutch in an emergency stop - in fact, the opposite happens, you stomp the floor looking for the clutch when you're in somebody else's vehicle.

    That is an incredible video! Reading about savants is fascinating; you just have to wonder how do they do that !'m lucky to remember all 10 things on my grocery list if I don't write them down.

    Thanks for posting that...just amazing.

    It is definitely time for the annual Raising Arizona & Big Lebowski double feature. Firing up the DVD player Saturday night...
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I remember back when I was a 'suit', we'd get all happy about 'casual Friday' when we could wear khaki pants.

    Now I wear jeans every day, and I haven't shaved in two weeks. You still need something to look forward to, so I'm thinking about making Friday "carry your 1911 day".
