Stepped into Austin's most iconic gun store (opened in 1960) last week around 4:30pm on a weekday to pick up a pack of cleaning patches. First time I've been in there in a long time.

Not going to get that in two years' time, though. I've been on Stan's wait list since early 2015. If he's comfortable with getting his 25th anniversary gift at some time around his 30th anniversary,...

See if you can find even a single reputable instructor who is well-versed in the use of the 1911 that recommends this practice.

I wouldn’t read too much into this, actually. The “General Firearms Forum” at Glocktalk is full of people who prefer many other guns over Glocks. Plenty of people there don’t like Glocks at all. The...
