    Am I the only one?

    So I was sitting in my recliner changing the grips on my 1911 (which I do frequently), and my wife looks over and says "Your just like our daughter changing the clothes on her barbie everyday). Does anyone else do this, or am I in fact compairable to a 6 year old girl?

    Changing grips? Maybe a sixteen year old boy does.

    Two things I'm pretty anal about...cleaning my guns and polishing the chrome on my motorcycle ! I don't change the grips on either of my 1911's very frequently; but, I do take them off and wipe them them down front and back, as well as the frame under the grips, when I clean the gun.

    The solution to your problem is simple, and straightforward. More 1911's

    Other than the lack of cash, there is nothing stopping me from getting all the 1911's I want. lol I will however be picking up a Para USA GI Expert in stainless at the end of the month

    either a 6 yr old girl or possibly an adult fashion deva. The latter would be if you change the parts out depending on what you are wearing to get things to match, or whatever it is people do to pick colors for what they are wearing.

    If you really want to have fun, ask her how many pairs of shoes she has.

    as long as none of your stocks have Barbie on them i think you are safe.

    me personally tho, when i get a gun to look "just right" i don't muck with it again.

    In a more defensible vein, you're simply maintaining your self-defensive system. Whenever I clean, I always have a backup.

    You have a USA Constitutional 2A right to defend yourself and your property, at all times, regardless of what grossly-distored state numbskull attempts to enact otherwise. This isn't new, people - it's an ongoing thing. Many (most?) people don't think through the events. Their lack of doing so brings us back to European fuedalism. Would you really like us dying of caved-chest syndrome at the first blow?

    Me neither.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
