As others have said, gun owners are our own worst enemy sometimes.
Correct. A "Fudd" is the name we usually give to casual gun owners and hunters who are not actively pro-2A or serious gun enthusiasts, and who have no objection to the passing of strict gun laws as long as it doesn't stop them from being able to go hunting or skeet shooting once or twice a year.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
