...you ever had a dream where "cocked and locked" took on a whole new meaning.

...your wife has ever made the comment "I didn't think that anything less than 4.25 inches was reliable".

:whistling:

...you've ever had cardboard in your avatar.

...you've ever made cardboard grips. :supergrin:

...you've ever done the math to figure out how much bodily fluid it would take to buy an Ed Brown.

...working on any other trigger is like hot-rodding a 1985 Ford Fiesta.

...you've petitioned the Pope to canonize John Moses Browning...

...you got rid of the velvet Elvis in your living room, and replaced it with a velvet John Moses.

...you think of Judgment day, and strive to be a better person so you can meet JMB.

...this makes your eyes bleed and you throw up so hard it comes out your nostrils:

.....If you cannot really recall just how many 1911's you own.

.....If you bought a 1911 from a gunshop, only to realize you used to own it years ago.

.....If your five-year-old can detail strip and fully reassemble any of your 1911's.

.....If you have 1911's in your safes that you can't for the life of you remember how you came by.

.....If manufacturers call you to ask how their 1911's hold up.

.....If your favorite saint is John Moses Browning.

.....If you look at 1911's the way teenagers look at playboy magazine.

.....If you sit through a violent movie and aren't bothered by gory violence, but flinch when someone drops a 1911 on the pavement.

Finish is Cerakote over parkerizing.
The pistol does not have an easy life.
I wear it a lot. Doing chores like rolling on concrete under my truck or
laying on my side on a roof.
It's checkered because it was first built for a customer many years before I developed golfballing. It is another 'buy back'.
Grip safety is pinned. Series 80 firing pin block is active. My preference.
No, I do not do this for a customer.
:cool:
Edited to add:
Last malfunction? Other than a reversed primer on one of my handloads?
Uhhhhhhhhh........I can't remember, been a while!
And look at my poor old Gordon Davis belt. The pics tell me I should treat myself to a new one.
