My hand was never retracted, we don't need to start over, just ask questions with substance. I would be glad to share my knowledge of Stainless Steel Colts with you.
I'm a retired engineer. That's why I get headaches when I need to do more than what's efficient, or erroneous.
This banter has been very educational for me, I see you are a true Gun Nut. No offense intended. I have more important things in my life than to remember serial numbers on guns. My memory is not what it use to be anyway, as a matter-of-fact after I signed off last night I opened the safe and found a couple of pieces I had completely forgotten about.
This morning I noticed that there were a couple of answers to my original post rubbing my nose in the fact that I have not fired my new guns, I took them the way they were intended, in fun. There was also a suggestion of sights and trigger, that is what I was looking for and greatly appreciated. I will go with those suggestions as well as going to the range, which I concede is a very good idea. That said, you really should do something about your headaches, I just read this and you Cane may enjoy it....
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."
He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week."
The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want."
Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."
