    Happy Birthday to JMB

    But just consider - if he had been born 1955 - what goodies might he have brought to the (our) gun rooms!!

    Then we wouldn't have had the 1911, and the world as we know it today would be totaly different.

    True Bruce - I should have been clearer - I was more thinking and should have said - ''reincarnation of JMB"!!

    Meaning - let him try again - in more modern times.

    I've always wondered if JMB could pull an Elvis on us. He patented a lot of stuff the design for which was just bought up and never put into production.

    Honestly, have there really been any changes to compare to what he came up with all those decades ago?
