Look it's one of those perfectly reliable RIA 1911's.

See, I can find things on YouTube, too.

What did we prove?
you proved nothing again. a front sight falling off doesn't make the pistol any less reliable. harder to aim yes, but not unreliable.

he only had one FTE in a over 1000 rounds. that also proves nothing. could have been quality of the ammo.

Add inflation prices, the Saturn V would cost $2946525238.89 respectively. So where exactly is a less complicated product 1) cheaper and 2) more reliable?
Umm... How many Apollo capsules were lost in flight?

How many orbiters were lost?

Spend more money and get a better product.

Nambu grip angle?

That is my only issue with the Glock. Grip angel don't work for me.


Angle even, don't know about any angels associated with them.

have no idea, but we were in the infancy of space flight and they were still learning. buy the time the shuttle came along, they had much more information and better equipment from time spent in space.

i wonder how many designs and ideas were scrapped in the quest to bring any one firearm to the market? for every product that makes it the consumer, the floors are littered with those that never see the light of day, because of cost, inefficiency to biuld, lack of technology, designs that won't work in practice, but look good on paper, and many other reasons.

There was 1 partial failure out of 11 launches within 5 years. There have been 2 shuttle disasters I believe, the Challenger and Columbia out of 134 launches.....

And spend more money and get a better product? So I can spend 1k and get a nice 1911 instead of 600 and buy a Glock then? Because that'd be a better product then from what you just said

That makes them less dead?

So there's a 9% failure rate with the Apollo Saturn V and a 1.49% failure rate with the Shuttle mathematically speaking. Hmmmmm.......
