Great! Now my wife wants one. I wish you hadn't put that tape measure in that picture.

The past few years those in the government whose ideals and morals I do not agree with have publicly called people who think and believe like I do bitter clinging, irredeemable, deplorable and Neanderthals. No telling what they call me in private.

That is one of the coolest set up's I have seen. I am jealous! Please post vids of that thing destroying concrete blocks and jugs of water. Maybe a water melon or two.

I had some .45 handloads with me, so I threw 20 downrange at 25 yards as well through my Talo Colt 1911:

Thank you.

I could only get one shot off with the AM - I had a failure to extract (not a problem with the pistol - I was holding lightly so I could get the most accurate shot) and after clearing the fired case I couldn't get the darn bolt open again. The recoil-springs are extremely strong and the cocking-piece is very slippery indeed - that needs to be modified.
