:-D not one of your pretty boy, sissyfied 1911's! :-D :-D

Anyway, I picked this up from my grandfather today, was my great uncles from the Army back in 1944. It's an all original, numbers matching, good shape (especially for a 65 year old gun!), COLT 1911. It's never going to be shot again, but it's still a cool and well maintained piece of history!

I would shoot it occasionally too -and tell myself that no harm will come and that stretching the springs and the subsequent cleaning is just good maintenance.

But then again maybe this pistol is like a warriors katana, and having a warriors soul it doesn't like to be drawn if there is no blood in the deal.

hmm

Becouse he doesnt want to. Maybe becouse it was last shot at a glorious moment and wants it kept that way.

If i had a weapon with sentimental value like that one, Id keep it extremely well maintained and sealed in a special capsule.
