I don't think that there is anything wrong with the design of the 1911. Didn't it pass a 6,000 round test for acceptance? If you made a crappy copy of a Glock, it probably wouldn't be reliable. ...

I still don't understand the desire for longer range. Most engagements are 2 - 300 meters, and most infantry can't reliably hit targets past 200 meters. Give the squad marksmen something they can...

Now people in St. Louis are calling for the removal of a statue of St. Louis (King Louis IX of France), because "he was anti-Semitic and Islamophobic". They are also calling for the city to be...
