Happy Birthday, JMB!

Wish I could celebrate by going and and buying some JMB designed firearms. But since I can't, I guess I'll just go pet pet my Colt.

Always good to remember the birthday of the single greatest firearms design genius whom the world has yet seen.

And to the modern "young-uns" who fail to recognize (or are actually incapable of recognizing) the special and unique design virtues of the M1911; please try to learn, grow up and gain some experience.

Yes, Glocks are certainly good guns, but the M1911 is in a different category altogether.

Thank you JMB!

I’m gonna brag a little now, I had the honor and pleasure to meet, and chat for about 30 minutes with Val Browning in 1989.

What a gentleman, with quite a bit of firearms fame in his own name.
