Our man Albright is back from his vacation. He’s in contact with Karl Lippard, the gunmaker and Marine who’s graciously agreed to lend us a Lippard 1911 Combat NCO A2 for testing and evaluation. As regular readers will know, Karl claims his gun’s the first “400-yard accurate pistol.” Which is a hell of a lot of yards for a .45 caliber bullet. One hundred yards more, in fact, that Martin can find for the TTAG test money shot. So if any of our Armed Intelligentsia have access to a 400-yard or more range at which Martin can do the put up or shut up thing with Lippard’s A2, please email email@example.com. Working stiff that he is, Martin’s available on the weekends for your mutual dining and shooting pleasure. It won’t be long now . . . So to speak.
