I wish that they never tried to "improve" the 1911s with all the who-ha and doo-dad beaver tail grip safeties, skeletonized hammers, firing pin blockers, spring rods, spring bushings etc. My old armorer once commented "If they improve them any more they won't work a'tall".
8 to 10 yard intended range. "Last line of defense between you and the gook".
Direct blow-back action.
Wait a minute Gunny, it ain't a direct blow back action.
Sure it is ... it will blow them di-reckly back.
CONTKMI, the 1911 is indeed a marvel and the .45 caliber is beyond dispute the best caliber but I would argue that Glock has become the new marvel (.45 caliber only though).
Let the fur start flying... : )
con: Actually both the round and the carriage have been GREATLY improved over the last one hundred years. Ever hear of Kinder? Ever see a Federal hollow point .45 ACP?
Same could be said for a Winchester trench shotgun. Ford vs Chevy. It was always odd to see them still next to a 249 or Mp5. Like the 1911, they work still. With the caveat of a bayonet lug over the nekkid 1911.
Why we don't have a holiday for John Browning is beyond me.
con: I meant "Kimber." I need another hit of coffee. My bad!
foo: Indeed, Browning was the "Edison" of firearms. Today we can't have a "holiday" for him. Not when the most important recognition goes to handing out "Oscars" to Hollywood druggies and Gays!
M2 is another oldie but goodie.

Age-old but useful trick that still works.

You don’t think there was some version of porn back then? Seriously? Look at Chinese history. They were drawing things like that a couple thousand years ago.
And the Founders knew our society would fall into depravity. That’s why they worded things like they did and insisted that the nation and Constitution was for an educated and moral society.

Remember when Hollywood wouldn’t be caught dead making comments like these? They behaved with class, at least in public.
So, you want to believe the Russians/Soviets? Seriously? Or Hitler’s dentist? Really?
I find conspiracy theories amusing but I don’t trust governments. Any government. And I trust those with power even less. Hitler had power and resources, enough to make disappearing possible. Also remember, there were those that were vehemently opposed to getting into the war. You don’t believe there might have been people that forced the FBI to turn a blind eye? Nope, that’s never happened before or since.
I watch the show with a healthy dose of skepticism but don’t believe for an instant we’ve ever gotten the full story.

A little off topic but has anyone else been watching “Hunting Hitler” on History? Fascinating stuff. I’ve long wondered why a megalomaniac like Hitler would commit suicide.
Oh come on. You don't actually believe in that garbage do you? Back then, the world was so hell bent on putting a noose on that crazy man's head, I'm convinced he would have not gotten anywhere in the world without being ratted out. Remember, this is the network that brought you "ancient aliens" and the show about looking for Atlantis.
He considered it at least twice before 1945. In 1923, just before they came to arrest him after the Beer Hall Putsch, and in 1932, at a time when his party's fortunes were actually declining and it looked as if his political career might be over. This evidence strongly suggests that he actually did it in the end.
I’m not sure I have ever believed the story of Hitler’s suicide. I believe charred remains found were probably Hitler and his consort, however I have always thought it more likely that the 1st soldiers through the door had orders to shoot on sight and, even if they didn’t have such orders, after having seen the hundreds of thousands and even millions of people who died because of Hitler’s evil actions, I would be shocked if the 1st soldiers through the door did not shoot on sight. It would’ve been perfectly natural to then throw his body in the garden, pour gas on it, and toss on a match. I suppose the world will never know, but I am sure there was never an intent to give Hitler an opportunity for a war crimes trial.

So, you’re saying his pay grade influences his faith? You can read his mind and heart?
When did you start having this God Complex? Are you seeking help?

Funny how someone who has based his life on a lie is now getting called out for lying.

And, once again, stats like LFPR, which is the worst since Carter’s ’70s, are ignored. Our economy is lame. If the Fed is truly independent, they know this and interest rates will not go up. Growth at 1.5%? Wow. Stellar…
the LFRP is flawed because it doesn’t take into account how much older our society is becoming (due to the baby boomer generation, longer life spans, ect):
Of course the proportion of adults in the work force is lower, there are more older retired people than ever! That stat is virtually meaningless.

With your statement, I’m guessing that you cherry pick the Bible for your own uses and don’t actually read it in context. It becomes pretty clear if you actually become a student of the Bible.

$5 they’re going to try to blame it on global warming.
Bibi has shown great restraint in light of the Islamic Regime we have running and ruining this country. I would truly pay money to see Bibi b!tch slap any of them ... Barry, Kerry, Jarrett would be a good start!

So, Chucky, it’s not important that the ambassador (who isn’t available to testify) wasn’t granted the security he requested for a year prior his death? The guy on the ground wouldn’t know the fluidity of the situation? If not, why was he the ambassador there?
Chuckles continues to be a mouthpiece for the libs/socialists.

Is there a reason you use multiple periods after every sentence? It makes your diatribe unreadable. Not that anyone was reading it anyway.
