    Hey Fatass

    Got my new American Rifleman today, has an article about Springfield Armory's "shrunken" 1911 in .45 GAP

    Might not be that bad of an idea, people with small hands could use it easier than a normal 1911

    • Slim,
      Thx and "happy trading all" back.

      Okedoke then, good luck.

      Just read all your mesg's and may have future questions on pistola ammo etc., as ya seem to know quite a bit. (Use Feds expanding full metal jackets)

      As far as the art, I look forward to reading it. It's an exciting new round and now that there is ammo from a lot of companies, it'll be interesting and fun, to see what they'll all come out with. CZ will be bringing out something in the next couple months, as will others. (Think it's going to accepted and sell well in a couple years)

      Oh yeah, read the Shotgun news art on the 50GI and didn't see anything new in it. Still think it's a good round, but not something I'm interested in (now).

      Visual demonstration, Sunday sermon.

      Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

      The first worm was put into a jar of alcohol.
      The second worm was put into a jar of cigarette smoke.
      The third worm was put into a jar of chocolate syrup.
      The fourth worm was put into a jar of good clean soil.

      At the conclusion of the Sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

      The first worm in alcohol - Dead.
      The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead.
      Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead.
      Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.

      So the Minister asked the congregation - What can you learn from this demonstration?

      A little old woman in the back quickly raised her hand and said,

      "As long as you drink, smoke and eat Chocolate, you won't have worms!"

    • hey...does that come in 9mm.? Been waiting for someone to come out with a smaller 1911 frame...hand too small...

      I can use my Dads 1911 Remington Rand but that was made in the 40s for a smaller hand..

      wow...I could be buying that one! Thanks for the heads up.

      • They dont make it in a 9mm yet, & they already make the regular size 1911 in 9mm, so I dont know if they will (but they probably should)

        If you want a 9mm for a smaller hand get a SIG 239, I have one, I tried to make it jam when i first got it & I couldnt, I'm a big guy I have carried it in a fly holster before, its that small (but then I usually carry a .32 Walther PP in a fly hoster & most people would think thats too big for a fly holster)

        But anyway the Sig 239 is an excellent small 9mm, my only complaint is no real safety

        my only caution is, theres not a lot of weight there, it kicks if you use high power loads

        I used to play baseball, I hurt my right wrist pretty bad once, if I use the Hirtenberger +P+ loads in the Sig that I usually carry in my P38 or USP I have to use both hands or I shoot to the right a little, it kicks that hard due to the light weight & I cant hold it without both hands
