Under/Over 40 and carrying a 1911?
Under/Over 40 and carrying a "Plastic Fantastic"?
That's where you'll see the divide...
Well, I'm well over 40 [59 next week], and I own a Kimber Custom Series 1 1911, but I haven't carried it in a while. My primary carry guns are a Kahr PM9 worked over by Cylinder & Slide, a SIG P239 and a SIG P229. So I don't know where you want to classify me. On the other hand, I really don't want to be classified. As Charles Schultz said many years ago in a "Peanuts" cartoon: "The sooner they find a classification for you, the sooner they'll find something for you to do".
Well, this is post number 100 on this thread, so I've done all I'm gonna do.
Be 44 in Dec. I am not a anti wheel gun man. I just love the way a good 1911 feels in my hand. All the Walther talk though I might have to be adding one or few. Is id bad that I traded a wheel gun (Ruger Redhawk 44 mag) to get my Para LTC?
<ducks from the onslaught of revolvers thrown at him in 70's cop show fashon>
I like both. I believe each has it's place. As for all round power per round there is no substitute for a revolver, but, for putting more rounds down range it's a semi-auto. There are exceptions of course, but average people can't afford them.
What the hell you trying to do?? I take it as a direct insult that you didn't consider an age group past 50-59!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My age group paved the way for you young PUNKS! Yeah I"m pissed!!!!!!! MR. Ward Tood
Couldn't vote because I just turned 70 on May 26th. I feel fine, politically conservative as hell, love my country, my wife and my cat, totally un-PC, piss people off often, shoot often and have a long want/need gun list.
My heirs are gonna get some nice guns someday..... but not too soon!!!!
