    Okay Dr.

    When I get home this afternoon, I'm going to find the cameras you have planted in my house. I know you've been watching me.


    I would like to invite you over to dinner so you can explain that to my wife.



    Bruce,
    Yes, you are
    over 1911, I know that was bad, but I couldn't resist.

    Sounds perfectly normal to me though.

    I like all the auction (and other) posts about 1911s and I guess I have kind of an obsession with the 1911. I say "kind of" because I like the 44 Magnum cartridge, too, so I like some of the guns chambered in that.
    But.... any 1911 obsession is much better than a Harley obsession. Trust me... way better (meaning a whole lot cheaper)!!

    I don't see anything wrong with it. If you enjoy something, you like to share it with like-minded people like yourself. Nothing wrong with that. I enjoy seeing the 1911s and other stuff that goes up here. The more I see, the more I learn!

    I mentioned that I work at a college, but have I mentioned that it is an all woman's college? I get to explain that and the fact that men don't always have to be right, they are always right. (genetic competitiveness) I also explain that psychology has sold Americans a bill of good on what drives each sex. They tell you that for men it is sex and for women it is romance. WRONG! In reality for men it is respect and for women security. Sex is a way that men understand that their wives respect them. Romance is one of the things that demonstrates the man's love and concern for his spouse and that makes her feel secure.

    Part to the explanation about both respect and the male's ability to concentrate on one thing is a discussion on the fact that it is easier to change behavior than nature. I explain that men by nature concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of others. So if the man is supposed to take out the garbage on Saturday morning, but he gets started watching a ballgame: he gets into a zone and in reality time ceases to exit for him. What does he mean later when he say that he did not realize it was so late? He means that time passed by without his realizing it. If the wife comes in an reminds him about the garbage once, it is a reminder. If she comes twice or more it is nagging and to him, whether he is conscious of it or not, it is a sign of disrespect. I advise the ladies to remind one time. Then if a while passes and he does not do take out the garbage to do it themselves. Then when an hour or so later he comes in to take it out to say, "I knew you were budy with something so I took it out for you." What does that say to a man? It says I respect you and your personal time. What is the man's response? He thinks, Wow, she really does respect me." And he makes a special effort to do his duty the next time. The behavior that needs to be change is the nagging and by doing that the wife does not change the nature of the man, but uses the nature of the man to accomplish what nagging never would. I also teach them to try to find something each week to compliment their husbands when they marry. This builds that sense within the man that he is respected and he responds by demonstrating that she can feel secure in her relationship with him.

    I often ask young ladies if they know why men don't ask for directions? They give a variety of answers. Then I ask them if they know that men ask for directions when their wives are not in the car? They usually look rather confused at that. I explain that to ask directions with your wife in the car is to lose respect. I also explain that it is entirely possible to have a husband who will ask directions even with them in the car. They look even more confused then. I tell them that if from the very beginning they indicate that they have a great deal of respect for a man who is willing to admit that he has made a mistake. This builds in an understanding that they each realize the other is not perfect and that admitting mistakes is a sign of strength not weakness.

    Well, I again have provide you with more than you ever wanted to know.

    Well, I vote you don't stop posting them.

That is one of the reasons I thing that CC is the best forum there is. The people are willing to share the knowledge that they have accumulated with us. And in turn we are willing to share what we have found. There is not jealousy here. On so many forums the whole thing is about who is the greatest. Here nobody belittles anyone for their lack of knowledge. Here questions are encouraged. Here people grow and are nutured. Here we are welcomed.

    I believe that the philosophy of this forum can be expressed in the idea: Pay it forward. It seems that the people who come here and stay and participate recognize that they have been helped in their endeavors by others and they those who helped them can never be repaid for that help. So instead they do exactly what those who helped them did. They help those who are less knowledgeable to find the knowledge they need. I for one think that I am fortunate to have found this place.

    Dr.:
    So true.

    I'm rapidly turning into a 1911 junky that's for sure. Still can't figure out the 1911 secret handshake though.

    Ah, but there is a secret knock that goes with the handshake, so even if you somehow found out the handshake you still won't be alowed in.


    There is only 1 way to get into the club without knowing either the shake or the knock. You have to go out and buy a Colt Commander , a lightweight version is also exceptable.

    A Commander is my next one, for sure. Well, I said that before I got my last Officer's model. Oh, and maybe another Defender. And a Government in 38 Super.
    Yep, a Commander....
    Unless I run across....
    At least I still have room in the safe - and it should really be full. Of 1911s.

    Kimo,

    You'll just have to learn the Government Model secret handshake, until you get yourself a Commander.

    OK, good reason to get another.

    Does owning a number of the Commanders in the past hold any sway?
