Re: Would you buy this 1911?

Not that it matters, but for me, the 1911 is like the AK-47 of combat handguns. Stupid simple and designed to work (or repaired) under combat conditions.

'nuff said, amen.

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Well.... looks like I'm going to miss this Saturday.
I'm working in the response center for the Harvey recovery (6 days /10-12 hours a week) and Saturday is now a work day. I'll see if I can trade Saturday for Sunday next month.
Happy Trails!

Re: How to get rid of old ammo

Please forgive my pragmatism.

I've never seen a box of ammunition with an expiration date.
Also, some of my hunting ammo was loaded in 1980. Never had a problem.
