    Thumbs up Ya Never Stop Learnin!

    A while back I did a face lift and a bunch of upgrades to my Para LTC. I replaced a bunch of parts including the trigger to get a better pull and feel. So to make a long story short I chose the trigger based on looks and really didn't pay much attention to anything else.

    I have this problem of shooting slightly down and to the left. Well I got to looking at things and noticed because of the trigger lenght I was pushing the pistol in that direction every time I pulled the trigger. I couldn't get the pad of my finger flat and parallel on the trigger. I got to doing a bit of research and discovered that yes by God they do sell em in diffrent lengths and I had bought a long trigger.

    Live and learn!!

    So as you might have guessed, I have a new trigger on it's way from Brownell's

    I'm now looking forward to better times at the range!

    Trial and error is the most common phrase in any hobby. This one is no different at the very least, it hones our attention to detail.

    While I am handy with all things mechanical, refinishing and customizing my first 1911 was a steep curve. I didn't want to screw up my eight hundred plus dollar pistol and I did a lot to it. Anyway like most projects, it is never really done. Here's a link to the project for those who might be interested.
    Finally! (Lots upixs)
    I've got an SKS that I'm sprucing up and I'd love to build another Commander from the ground up....if I ever find the spare change.
    Guns are fun to tinker with. Now! I just wish that trigger would get here. The snow is a meltin and I'm getting the shootin itch!
