I woke up this morning thinking, I have let my 1911 down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my 1911 deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my 1911. Those feelings should be shared by us alone...but damn, that Glock was cute!
What do you think it means? Does Wilson Combat or Kimber offer therapy? Could I get on Oprah? Should I engage Gloria Allred as my celebrity attorney?
AnarchAngel has an interesting post this AM on choosing a chronograph...the reason I link it here is that I've had a chrono for so long it never occurs to me that most shooters don't, and the chrono is an absolutely critical tool if you reload...and who doesn't these days? I've used Prochronos from Competition Electronics for decades. That's the one where the skyscreens are built into the unit, so you're shooting over the chrono. And NO, I've never put a bullet through a chrono, although my friend Tom Judd (with whom I started Front Range IDPA back in the day) has. The round had sufficient velocity to leave a really impressive wound channel.
I have to say if I was buying now I might look at a PACT Professional or another with a printing function. One thing I've wished is that I had a hard copy of of the hundreds of loads I've chrono'ed over the year stapled to the appropriate pages in the reloading manual as opposed to cryptic scribbled notes I can no longer decipher...I'm pretty sure that "200/7.8gUnique3900" doesn't mean I'm getting 3900 fps off 7.8 grains of Unique behind a 200 grain .44 lead bullet...I'd still be scrubbing lead out of the barrel...
