You are on fire. Those are some treasured posts, I missed this one, but it is beautiful, thank you:

The custom 1911 is a high-quality fountain pen. A cheap ball point will work better, more consistently and with less fuss, but it will also lack all of the intangible refinement that makes writing with a fountain pen an experience to be savored, rather than just another chore. It forces you to take your time, craft your manuscript and tend to the needs of your writing instrument, even as it delivers a smoother line, a satisfying heft and a more distinctive result. So it is with the 1911. It is heavy, which makes it particularly well-suited to the .45 Auto. It possesses an excellent trigger that no other handgun can equal. It offers a subjective feel in the hand that meets a rather particular need, and it catches the eye in a way that only a true icon can. The gun is a part of our national fabric, and still an incredibly effective tool.
