Did you mean 'then'? Your point would be better made if the grammar was correct. 😁

perfect is a subjective word.

great guns yes but not the perfect gun. i dont think there is such a thing.

if i had to take one to war it would be a close call tween the 1911 and beretta m9a1 due to easy of repair and maintenence. everything i need to keep either running in top shape can be carried in a back pocket.

anyway no such beastie as a perfect gun unless your trying to squeeze one out of a chicken's ass...
I didn't say perfect gun, but perfect pistol!

Reasons I say its perfect:
It works every time I pull the trigger
I hit what I am aiming at
It fires a round with authority
Its flat so I can carry it with a tee shirt

Maybe the egg and 1911 are connected

because they both do poorly in a

microwave oven

haven't tried firing mine from a microwave so I'm not sure how that would effect it haha

I'm sorry you didn't get it, probably because of my grammar mistake

The 1911 may not be perfect, but it's a damn sight better than anything else out there.

No biggee, I was just being a wise arse. With phones, tablets and such we all make typos and errors. Just don't want to give any anti 2nd amendment folks ammunition towards calling us all ignorant rednecks. Even if we are!!!
