10 hour drive for a Springfield.....

Not really, but I saw some guy on here drove 7 hours for a kimber recently. WTF?

Here a couple pics of the champion I picked up. I got it about 30 minutes from home. I bobbed the frame myself and installed the ed brown tactical thumb safety.

I like it.

Did you use a fixture to do your bobtail cut, and if so which one?

Thanks for all the kind words, I used the Ed Brown jig.

Can someone tell me where I can find the "Quack" trigger? I found a similar trigger made by 10-8 by googling 1911 flat trigger. Is Quack the manufacturer or the model?

Quack is on here and other forums and promotes the flat trigger. Go on brownell's they have flat triggers by 10-8 and Wilson.

I was only joking about Quack being the manufacturer or the model of the trigger. On a serious note, and I'm not complaining, but does anyone moderate the 1911 forum on glocktalk? Anyone?

I've been reading some old threads and there are some that should have been locked after a post or two and they've gone on to be 6 or more pages.

The one about raking leaves or washing your car? The ten different ones about the NC alcohol enforcement and Kimber?

I think I'm home, how do you cancel an account on ar15.com?

This is a sub forum for grown men, we don't need moderators like up at general glocking.

You got it backwards it was raking your car and washing your yard.

Great looking Bob. Welcome to the boards. This is the best 1911 forum out there by far. As far as those threads being locked, no way man. Eventually they get back on topic or just die. If all our threads got locked for a little sidebar conversation, you would have nothing here but a bunch of locked, one response threads!

...one other thing, be weary about your picture requests. I am told there are things that can't be unseen.

Mark is a great moderator. He let's the conversations flow....no matter how off topic they (generally) get. The only time he locks it down is if people get nasty and start in with personal attacks. He gives a lot of latitude for discussion and disagreement, but will not hesitate to shut if down if guys start really sniping each other.
