  1. Try doing that with a polymer frame!!The Org. 1911 is like a swiss army knife,You can even use it as a toothpick (not recommended).

  2. At Gunsite, in the bathrooms themselves, there are two pegs on the walls – one labelled “9mm” and the other “.45” You place your firearm, barrel first (not hanging by the trigger guard) onto the peg when doing your thing to avoid any drops / dunks.

    Just don’t forget your gun when you’re done – the instructors politely warn you that you’ll likely get it back detail-stripped some time later.

  3. This should’ve been entitled “101 Use for a Para Ordnance”.

    Gee Johnnie, are ya pissed at Para?

    Yeah. A shitload little.

  4. I don’t have a lot of use for a “live” 1911, why would I care about dead ones?

    (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

    Hate to see an old gun treated like that, even if it isn’t functional.

    • That one has some rust on it, and, it probably doesn’t rain a lot there, and they probably have enough worn out 1911s to replace it weekly anyway.
