It goes bang every time I pull the trigger and never had a hiccup in the 3 or 4 years that Iv'e had it. What gives??
I feel ya, thats one thing that really rubs me the wrong way. At a recent mg shoot and gun show i had two seperate vendors ask about my 1911, when i told them it was a RIA they acted as if i had just projectile vomitted on them. I nearly told the one guy where to stick it but didnt, of course i stewed about for awhile and wished i had.
Its the same type of person who looks down on you when they pull up next to you at a traffic light in thier fancy (but imo useless) sports or luxury car.
