I will let my son shoot 1 round. He's got no money. He's only 13.

We are going to occupy, pitch tents and defecate all over your yard until you give us our fair share.

Must leave your 1911 with the attendant at the gate.

My 1911 is mine. However, some how or another I'm entitled to yours.

I've got a few boxes of that stuff squirreled away. This is the last of my "issued" ammo from back in the day. Still can't bring myself to shoot it up. I was the one responsible for requisitioning the ammo whenever the SNCOs/officers were up for requals. I kept all the leftovers because it was actually more paperwork to return the stuff than shoot it up.

I'd keep it. You can always buy .45 ammo to shoot.

I'm with DSK. We only have used half clean silverware made of tin, multiused rusty nails and screws, and old worn sofas that are infested with bedbugs and fleas at our garage sales.....

Used to shoot that stuff in the late 70"s that is about what it cost back then- $5a box. If it is boxer primed it is Vietnam mil spec overproduction for a contract. It used to shoot nice but is a full power round. Make sure your 1911 is in good shape because it often gets a little hotter with age.

I'd probably hang onto it, why not? It's not like you'd be able to find that stuff anywhere else anytime soon.

so true. although on Thursday I got lucky and found a Vietnam War era Army jacket that had some ribbons and pins. No idea who the original owner was, but he was a combat medic in USARV in Vietnam.

It was hanging on the porch when I drove by. Had it not been hanging up I wouldn't have stopped.

Hang onto it and do what with it? Give it to your kids? Pull it out and look at it every couple years?

Personally, I don't see the point. I'd be happy to have 150 cheap rounds to shoot and once fired brass to reload.

About 15 years ago an acquaintance of mine gave me a magazine he found in his fathers tool cabinet. It was a .45 mag with the lanyard loop and 7 rounds in it. They were head stamped 1942 or 43. Corrosive but they fired just fine.
