Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

Then don't take your 1911's to a gun show and openly display them. The point is about people mishandling firearms through ignorance, whether at a gun show or elsewhere. They're simply recounting their recent experience which happened to be at a gun show. And while I also do not use the slide releas...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

I'd be upset if someone mishandled my inexpensive 1911 RIA; I don't see this as elitist in the slightest.

Re: The importance of Pre-existing Knowledge for SD

That's a good point - but I'm thinking "hope for the best but prepare for the worst"; I don't know if everyone can afford expert witnesses.

Re: Another opinion please

Provisional patent, then - inexpensive and no attorney required; might give you some legal authority for a while.

Re: Another opinion please

I think it would be neat and it's a reasonable price.

Your biggest concern *might* be the Chinese fakes not merely competing with you but actively hijacking your listing; google this.

The importance of Pre-existing Knowledge for SD

I know that Charles is very familiar with this concept but I'm not sure that a lot of folks here are, so here's an overview from Marc McYoung explaining why it's important: Claiming self-defense is more than “I was afraid of being attacked.” You will have to explain and provide evidence about why th...

Re: Problem With 1911 Grip Screws

Small rubber o-ring under the screw-head - 1/4 O.D. x 1/8 I.D. x 1/16 W

The issue with Loctite is that on some pistols it *may* force the bushings to unscrew from the frame.

Happy 50th Birthday, GCA
