It's got a NICE trigger. Just a little creep at first, then it breaks like a glass rod. It's light too.

I already love the 3 dot sights. Very easy to see (which is great, cause my eyes suck). The finish is also nice. It looks like a matte blue, but it's not blued. It's something else.

The weight isn't too bad either. Feels just right to me. Maybe everyone else is just a wuss. (jk)

I only have one problem with it. I have no ammo to feed it, and the only 45 ACP ammo around here is WAY overpriced.

Cheapest I can find online is $25 for a box of 50 CCI Brass Blazer.

Just looked up the value of Winchester White box from before the panic. It was $35 for 100 rds.

Mobile- as far as cutting the grass, and covering the broken window-

Permit me to teach you a new word. In Yiddish. In English characters, it would be pronounced mitz-veh.

Means a good deed, done without hope of reward. Except it bestows a blessing on you for doing the right thing.

Taking the time to put 50 cents worth of plastic over a broken window might save the future owner having to replace $1000 worth of plywood floor. And who knows- it might be a nice young couple struggling to get their first house. If the new owners turn out to be jerks- that is a stain on THEIR soul, not yours. Hell, they may offer you the place dirt cheap, and you end up as a real estate tycoon.

As far as the bio-hazard in the house- you have worked enough bad wrecks to know- there are no magical elves that show up to cleanup. And no one ever considers- after a mass assault crime scene- like Newtown, the Aurora theater- there are folks that have to come in and clean and disinfect the place.

Was walking into a store behind two damn young turd burglars, with their pants around their knees. I was going in for a drink, on my way to a class for work.

These two guys....

One stops and grabs the door...
While the other helps this little old lady in a wheelchair get into the store.

THEN they stuck around to help her inside the store, and help her get back into her car. She's on a road trip to see her grandchildren in Alabama, had Texas tags.

Instant redemption from douchebaghood. Still hope for even those who have some strange phobia of belts.

A guy at work turned 50 today. He's a good guy, but likes to argue, which irritated people. I looked out the door and saw a rainbow, right where he was working.

Primer: "its your birthday, right?"

"Yeah"

Primer: "see that rainbow out there?"

"Yeah, that's cool, seeing how its my birthday.

Primer: "That's gods way of saying he'll never do that again"

Thanks. I just finished field stripping it. The guy was telling the truth. He never shot it. It was still covered in packing grease. It's oiled up now, so it functions nice and smooth.

I never understood that. Why buy a gun and not shoot it even once?

Now THAT is what you call a gentleman. Now if they could only start wearing pants that fit...
