Okay, you have inspected for the wear and found some(which is pretty predictable). Now do you just make a note of it, or do you have more drastic measures in mind? Stoning the areas? Replacement? The wear on your trigger bow looked more like scratch marks from a rough trigger track. What are your suggestions when you find "trouble" spots like these? I love my 1911. A year and a half ago it saved my life when I was attacked by a man armed with a knife who stalking one of my clients. I chose not to shoot him even though I could have legally done so, and after having him arrested for assault and battery, ended up wishing I had shot him. He got 90 days suspended for 18 months even though he was a convicted felon. He made 4 threats to kill me all on an answering machine tape. I want Irish Rose ready and well lubed and fed if he decides to make good on his threats. You never really know what people are thinking, and any situation can go south in a heartbeat. That is why I carry constantly on or off premises of my property. Oh thank you for the blend of your Cane Lube. Looks a lot like the stuff we use in our gunsmith shop to clean and lube all of our weapons in a cleaning tank.
