Nice

Interesting that Colt and Remington have made their 1911 more 1911 than 1911A1. Notice the long trigger and the mainspring housing.

Thanks. Yes, Colt makes different models. Most of their "series 70" have a short trigger and a arched mainspring housing and they don't have a lowered and flared ejection port. However, this "series 70" is a special run that has a mixture of other features.

Me too SJMB. I never

Me too SJMB. I never cottoned to front slide serrations like on the xse line. And not having the fireing pin block is nice.

Interesting range day

So, I went to the range today at lunch, to try this puppy out. Put 200 rounds through her and no issues what so ever and shoots real sweet. But the most interesting thing I saw, was a woman who brought her daughter, looked to be about 9 or 10, and was teaching her to shoot. She was doing a darn good job too with a .22. I've seen fathers bring sons and fathers bring daughters, but that's the first time I had seen a mother bring her daughter. And I thought that was just cool.

I don't know if she's single or not. If I see her again I'll check for you. Ya, that would be nice to have a wife that did that. If she is married, hopefully her husband knows what he has.

How you all doing?

Greg, still here, lurking. Just squeezing in a post or two while working. Kid went in yesterday to have wound vac changed and looked over. The hospital didn't have the supplies(?) and said Dr.s office should have sent it over. So Jason has no wound vac right now. Packed wound with gauze for now and changing it out regular. Wife called today to "straighten" things out. I feel sorry for the poor SOB on the other end of the line. She's a firecracker. Anyway, looks like she did the job and they're going to fix it all tomorrow. She bumped up the time for the next surgery and I think everything is looking good so far.

Sorry to hear about Gloria. Prayers coming from here. Let us know how it goes.

Vaq, good to hear you're staying awake. I wouldn't want you to fall asleep in the NM summer sun.
