i received my .45t fde on wed., put 100rds through it that night, LOVE LOVE LOVE the gun. the only problem i had was the threaded protector kept coming loose. ive searched the forum and read that happens and expect that to happen since its metal on metal etc. can i put a lil piece of pipe thread tape on there to keep it from loosening or something else? i searched and couldn't find an answer. i just dont want to be out in the woods shooting and i forget to check it and it fall off and loose it.
