Fine

Ban everything. It doesn't matter one iota. People who want to keep their 'Rights'
will. Others probably don't own one anyway.

I'm with you on the Browning HP

My first auto 9mm was a Browning T model made in the late 60's. Since then I ended up with another one made in the same time frame. 1967 I think. My experience is they are an excellent and dependable...

I sold my 9FS Berretta

But in a way wish I hadn't. I do have a Colt Combat Cmdr series 70 which I consider a keeper. I've never seen it malfunction and it shoots a hard hitting round. I'd really much rather have a 45 ACP...

So according to Richard all we should really need for self defense is a bunch of balloons and a straight pin.

My first 1911 was a Navy issue Colt 1911 Property US Government. I didn't get to take it home but it was enough to know what a 1911 looks and feels like.

I'd leave it alone

and shoot it at least a few times at the range until you see how it runs.
My normal attitude towards a Colt is this. If it works great and shoots great leave it alone. If for some reason you need a...

If it's covered by a recall send it in and have it fixed. If not covered by a recall take it to a gun smith and have it fixed. You can tack on the gun smith bill when you sell it. My take is you will...

It looks too good to not be a rebuild or refurbish. Unless it has extensive documentation which apparently it does not, it's worth about $1,000 I would guess. That typical song and dance about the...

I agree with your assessment "but"

that "HALF COCK SAFETY" was not a "CARRY" position but only was meant to catch the hammer if it slipped off full cock.
So when we're talking about a Safe to Carry position 'half cock' is not meant...

I've never heard

of "half cocked" being a safe position. If a round is chambered "cocked and locked" is safe on a single action. Otherwise Israeli style no round in chamber. If someone is not familiar with single...
