I had high hopes with my thread at first .. Lol

I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

I could count them on one hand although, I'm fairly mechanically inclined I could probably figure out more if I had to.

Know your limits; exceed them often

That which does not kill me had better run pretty damn fast.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

I'm like her, pretty mechanically inclined (okay, maybe I'm not really as pretty as her...) I haven't found a gun yet that I can't detail strip and put back together. Something I like to do is tear things down to their very smallest pieces and see how everything works as soon as I possibly can.

How many have I actually done though... well over 50 different makes and/or models I'm sure. Could be way more, I never felt the need to keep count.

Not even close to being as pretty as her.

I can usually figure it out without instructions.

The only one I take down (detail strip) regularly is Kimber Ultra II Covert, and I still get out the picture for the Schwartz and the sear. But I love exploded diagrams, schematics and manuals.

For cleaning, whew... I'll go with about 5 on a regular basis. I would need to put some recent hands on a bunch for a test.

Default How many?

So what if I was the only kid in my 5th grade who could field strip an 08-15 Maxim machine-gun, had his own M1 garland, and my own pickup! LOL

the only one that i have ever really needed a manual to field strip was the mk19 grenade launcher. since the geniuses that sent em to my unit neglected to send the needed manuals it took me 5 hours to figure it out...
