... And damaged firearms are dangerous. Colt Pythons, Garands, and Pre-WWII 1911s are especially susceptible.
So, as a service to DC members, if you have dry fired your firearm (even once!), please PM me. I will supply you with my FFL's info for you to ship it to me for proper disposition. Out of the generosity of my heart I will even cover the transfer fee.
I always wet-fire my guns.
I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

It's good to know that the fine folks on this forum are willing to risk life and limb to protect me. Do you also accept newer firearms? I dry fire all of my non-rimfire guns, so I really dont want them in the house anymore.
Once time I inadvertently allowed the slide to slam home on the empty chamber of one of my Colt 1911s.
God! I got so damn mad at myself when that happened!
I got such a sick feeling in my stomach when I heard that metallic metal to metal clank.
I have been afraid to fire it ever since that unfortunate incident happened.
Would it be possible for you to do me a huge favor and take that one also even though I have never dry-fired it?
I can include a holster and I would be willing to pay half the shipping and transfer costs.
Possibly you could scrap it for spare parts?

I got an old tv (one with a tube). It has never been fired. You want it come and get it. I'll toss in 5 bucks.

Note: many 1911s are now shipped with that hole already in the bushing. Hard to believe they'd miss a hole more than a half inch in diameter, but it happens. I also take in factory defects like that.
From what I have heard is that Rugers are much more suitable to this kind damage, being a Ruger supporter means that I must offer to take these damaged firearms off of people's hands. I will of course pay for shipping and FFL transfer fees just to ensure that you are safe.
Only weapons I dryfire are my .22lr's... I figure it's less dangerous if a .22 blows up in my face rather than a big people's bullet.
