Mas, Would you mind commenting on this thread of information; http://www.wnd.com/wnd_video/for-self-defense-22-beats-45/ Not trying too cheap shoot anyone, just thought it might be fun to disuse view points on the thread, from your point of view. I know how I feel about, but then that's just my point of view. Take care, stay safe. 436 PS: Mas'.., we've done some work together in the past, in fact it was at one of your LEO courses that you received one of Colt first 1911 all stainless from Gary French.. while at the school, mine was waiting for me at the office on my return to the Dept. Yours shot great when we took it to the range, I called Gary and had to return my. He exchanged for the soon too come out 1911 Combat Elite... which I still have and would never part with.
