Clip.....

Magazine.....

It's all the same. It's a slang word, nothing more. I'm sure he knows that they are properly called magazines.

I'm hoping my neat little thread doesn't turn into yet another discussion about how they are not "clips" they are actually called "magazines" blah blah blah blah.....

From now on I'm going to call them the "Boxy little thingies that hold the bullets which go into the hole of that bigger bullet-shooter thing" just to annoy people on here.

My weak side thumb stays far away from the slide stop while using my two hand grip.

There's no way I'm chancing an interfearance with the slide stop operation and having it close on an empty chamber.

That can dead you!

Yep, Timber Rattler (called Canebrake here in the South), and I love them.



I know they’re not for everyone but I’ll bet if you tried them you’d fall in love with them.

They are a little stiff and shiny when new but like any quality leather, the more they’re used, the better they get.

It’s the first gun stock I’ve owned that actually grips my hand.

I got them from Mel at Dog Grips in Monroe MI.

Like Mel says, “They don’t wear out, they wear in.”

Email Mel bullcreedog1953@yahoo.com if you want more info. He’s a great artisan and will go out of his way to provide customer service.

Nice collection. What are your thoughts on that spur hammer versus the now more tradtional Commander style hammer in regards to concealed carry?

I'd much prefer a bobbed spur, but without the huevos to take an angle grinder to my pieces, I'll stick with commander hammers.

The spur hammer doesn't bother me a bit. I tend to like my 1911 pistols a little more "retro" looking so I prefer the spur hammer.

The only possible downside I can see is the "rat-tail" grip safety when shooting alot of rounds through it. It may get the web of the hand a little sore.

I put 200 rounds through the 1911 today and I had no problems with it. I did everything from shooting one-hand, performing complete draw-fire double tap-reholster, shooting from multiple positions, and shooting multiple targets and the pistol ran great.

P.S. I also shot the heck out of my little PA63 and I am surprised by the performance of that little gun. 9x18 makarov isn't the most powerful round out there, but it's performed very well. It was accurate up to about 25 yards (i.e. 6 inch spread which I believe is decent considering it's a service-grade mil-surp pistol with a small barrel).

Gotta update this thread again. I'm having a good week.



Nothing like a nice little .22LR fun gun for cheap plinking.
