    Don't blame you at all, Corey. The 1911A1 is the finest handgun ever made. I've often wondered what the Army was thinking when they went to that 9mm POS. I was fortunate; the 9mm never made it to any of the units I was in until after I was long gone. Some of our .45's were so old they rattled, but, for close defense, they got the job done.

    Yup, I'd take a beat up 1911 over a new Beretta 92 any day if the chips were down. Although I will say the Beretta 93-R I had was fun in 3 round burst mode.

    I did some training with some Seals back in the day . I drove them around [ Amphib ] , basically . I'm no Seal and would never pretend to be . Anyway , some of those guys had .357 revolvers they carried . I assume it was their up close and personal weapon of choice . I'm not sure but I don't think they are told what to carry as a side arm . This was in the late 80's early 90's . let me tell ya , these guys were bad a** all the way

    A good 1911 WILL "rattle" a bit. That just means it is "well broken in." If it is so tight that there is no rattle it has not been run enough to be reliable yet. LOL
    I think we have gotten off topic though. :bing:

    I won't have it until Tues, but if it's anything like the other 2 it will be another great smoker.
