The short rigger was JMB's way to increase the size of the trigger guard for those boys wearing Calvary gloves.

Since I don't ride a horse nor wear gloves while I shoot my M1811A1, I find the short trigger not to my liking.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

At least repairing that relationship is still an option. I wish my dad was still around and holding on to his M1911A1. As it turns out there is a lot I didn't say to him that I wish I had the time now to do so.

Yeah it's a real bummer. I wish I had a relationship with him, but it was kind of a big deal, and this is neither the time or place for it, I'm sorry I brought it up. If you would like to hear the gory details send me a PM, I don't mind sharing. In fact I wouldn't mind starting a whole new thread on the subject, and would love some advice, but this one is for enjoying these beautiful pieces of artillery

2nd Cane,

Lost my dad a year ago. Diagnosed stage 4 lung cancer and gone 4 weeks later...

I glad I moved back to WA state 10 years ago. It gave me a decade of White Tail hunts with the old man and allowed him to be a part of his grandsons first hunt/kill.

TACK

Okay, this has been eating at me, and most people here seem to have a good head on their shoulders, plus life experience. I'll be starting a new thread soon, maybe tomorrow as the wife is expected home any minute. Y'all can tell me what you think. I'll be posting in the clubhouse.

OP- I'm so sorry to hijack, it was totally unintentional. beautiful piece, congratulations
