I read your thread about the guy at the range who made the "unfortunate" (for him) comments regarding your Springfield.
I say unfortunate because, as many who replied to your thread have already pointed out, those comments only served to make him look foolish.
There are a myriad of 1911-style gun makers and a myriad more of differeing models/features/pricepoints within each of these makers. It is simply foolish of anyone to make grand & sweeping statements that "maker X" is better than "maker Y". You can, in some fashion, compare differening models against the features offered (and features you are willing to shell out more cash for) on individual guns. But even doing this does not necessarily & concretely mean that one gun is "better" than another. It all comes down to personal perception and opinion and what works best for you. At best, this is a highly subjective argument and his pushing it only serves to make him look more & more foolish.
That said, it is likely that (after time to reflect on his words) he figured this all out and was somewhat embarrased by his remarks. Especially in light of the fact that he works for this range and you are his customer. That, alone, makes his comments especially not wise. Anyway, I would just shrug all of this off and go about your business (as I know you have) of shooting/owning your fine firearm that has performed flawlessly for you. That is the bottom-line of what it is all about!
By the way, I watched your youtube vid and liked it!! Good info
Have a good one,
