Them god damn boats!!! Why can't they not float when you have a few dozen firearms in them? I am still pissed about losing all my weapons. They never turn over with all your damn fishing rods and gear, but guns, hell, they seem to want to vomit them overboard like poison every damn time one is in its hull. GEZZZZ......

Here's a good one to think about:

Para-Ordnance LTC (9x19mm). Exact 1911 platform, with the only difference being it is chambered in 9x19mm instead of .45 ACP.

The rest, as they say, is history.

It isn't a 1911 pattern pistol if it is chambered in anything other than the .45 ACP.
See? That Canebrake dude....he always know! Know that I'm sayin?

KAHR also has a new .380 in a 1911 platform. Dan Wesson offers the Pointman 7 in .40 as well.

There are a whole bunch of 1911's in other calibers. Just depends on what you prefer. They seem to be more expensive for some reason.....

yeah there are plenty of different calibers out there. Including the 460 Rowland. if you ae not familiar with this caliber you have to check it out. I have the drop in kit from Clark Custom but Wilson Combat makes one as well. Shoots a 45 caliber to 44 mag speed and it kicks less. How's that for a kicker.

The 460 Rowland shoots the same bullet as the .45 ACP.

Fenrir should be back home by the end of this week!!!!

Wake up JD! It took a retainer of a Detroit attorney to get movement but It will ship tomorrow!!

That light you see is the flash from the comp on Fenrir.

Dig Big Thunder out and clean the rust off that Kimber, The Build Off is about to come to a very loud conclusion!!
