"So yes, then.  But since he was just trolling to try to make some point about the mindset of gun owners, it hardly matters."

"Vytautas, thanks for your reply. It is very easy to be misinterpreted or someone misunderstand on the internet. Robert, there is a reason the 1911 is still in production for over a century, excellent ergonomics and balance, built around [arguably]…"

"It's the city itself. They are notorious for their inefficiency in all their paperwork. I have a friend that was a substitute in the next city over, and the whole process less than a third of the time it took me. They are just like that.…"

"I quibble over two sentences because I think inefficient and unclear language needs to be excised, and I am in no way interested in placating vanities."

"But every weapon is "practically accurate" or else it ceases to be a firearm in any meaningful sense. At that point, the phrase becomes tautological and of no use in describing anything. It's useless."

"Thanks everyone for all of your help. So, I went back to the range today for 1 on 1 lesson, and found that the Colt 1911 is pretty much perfect, and my first two shots with it were bulls-eyes (Mostly out of luck than skill, but I'm chalking it…"

"Thanks for your reply.    A vest makes a lot of sense, especially as it cools off a bit.  Cool Website.  Some of them are really high-tech.   What do you do in the middle of the summer?"
