06/20/2021 The original Colt 1911 National Match MK I was produced from 1932 through 1942, before production was suspended in the early years of World War II.

The Ruger SR1911 10MM Auto and a Cast of Thousands!…!! OK, maybe only a cast of four... but that's not what's important

08/17/2020 My wife and I date a lot. Yes, with one another. Something more typical in a fifty three year marriage than one might suspect.

Remington’s Long Slide 1911 R1 10mm Hunter Part II A day in the life of a handloader

06/12/2020 Pardon the redundancy… This issue of 10mm Automatic power was addressed on Part I, but the comparison was to large bore magnum cartridges. Now that we know the 10mm Automatic pales in performance, kinetic energy wise, to the 50 BMG, the table below may provide more reasonable associations and context. Cartridge Bullet Weight Grains…
