A very small number of bad apples ends up causing some folks to hate/distrust ALL cops. Kinda the same way we gun owners are viewed every time somebody goes nuts and shoots up a store or theater. Thanks for proving my point that we have some obvious cop haters on here which is why the LE sub-forum is so difficult to manage.

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.
