I just watched Three Days of the Condor last night, I think for the first time. Excellent flick.

My understanding (I can't remember where I got this) was that Lincoln's intent was to send the freed slaves back to Africa, their continent of origin. However, part of that was establishing a country...

Agreed. I've also thought that about the 1911 market. It's easier to name companies that don't make 1911s than it is to name companies that do. With the everyday shooter going after the plastic 9MMs,...
