Rust and bureaucrats. Freedom and vigilance. Front sight and trigger. Kindness and firepower. Situational awareness and tolerance. Safety and concealment. Taxes and allegiance. Love of man and surgical marksmanship. Once a soldier, always a soldier.
Just bought a MTR leather slide for 9/40/357 from gunners alley. I wore it all day at the range helping with ccw classes and it works great. Good retention and I was able to draw easily when I had to. A good deal.
