    No, a drunk driver ran off the road and hit my gas meter which was next to the outdoor package unit furnace so I had a nice fuel-air explosion which ignited the house. I was asleep upstairs, so by...

    No, that would be USPSA. I can't recall a USPSA field course with other than two scored hits per target.

    I will be shooting IDPA in Rev-E because I have more LP than SP (or even SP + SR) primers, and with moon clips, I get back all my brass six at a time.

    Looks like a good gun. I do wonder why they put the military match blueprint number on the bushing, though; that was never a Colt part.

    Bill Jordan said he could have a small revolver in his left pocket, draw and border shift before an opponent knew he was under attack. I think now we would just shoot with the left hand.

    True.
    I like E.E. Smith's view: If it weren't for the present increase in piracy, the income tax would have to be reduced again to keep too much money from accumulating in Patrol coffers.

    Yes, I know the difference between air-cooled and water cooled machine guns; the 1917 was considered a heavy before the .50 came along.

    It's not the catalog of NDs and DQs, it's the attitude that the Marines or Army turned out a finished pistol shooter.

    No.
