And the arrows point the wrong way.

The 1911 has a fatal design flaw that inhibits point shooting.

Had a guy at my gun counter say that the other day. I guess I've been doing it wrong the last couple of years...
Did you tell Mark Kelly to get the hell out of your store?

GLOCKS are perfection.

Sorry, had to say it. I think GLOCKs are good guns, but they are not perfect, and they aren't the best out there.

I will never own a Glock. They function nice.. but they remind me of legos of how they look.!

"Anything below [.40 or .45] isn't suitable for self defense."

IMO, anything above .25 is suitable for self defense. Even a .25 can kill, but it is highly unlikely it will make a one-shot-stop. Most of the time, just pullin a gun is good enough to solve a self defense situation.
