    I thought it was because none had every actually been used. More people have been on the moon than have every used a Busse.

    (And I don’t believe in the moon landing)

    I think the thing that protects the blades even more than the powder coat is the safe that they all sit in.

    So after trading off my old beater sig p220 (it was nearing the end of its useful life and someone else wanted it more) I find my self wishing I had another .45 auto, what are the thoughts on the Springfield 1911 defender? This will mostly be a range toy maybe occasionally woods carry kinda duty. I really like the traditional 1911 look.

    reset, etc on a 1911 can be set to whatever you wish by adding a pin to the front curve of the triggers stirrup and a shim to the rear surface of the stirrup. About one hour of smithing time, if the smith is not lying to you. $100 or so. I like the alloy commander 9mm as a trainer for the Sig P938 that I carry. That little gun is pretty amazing, so I dont beat it up by shooting it much. All of the pocket 9mm's are highly-stressed, and not all that durable. This is especially true of the ones with alloy frames, like the Sig. So the practicing is done with the Commander and what shooting is done with the Sig is with wussy loads, 2.8 grs of Bullseye and 125 gr lrn's. The carry load is the 85 gr 380 silvertip jhp, pulled from winchester Silvertip ammo, loaded to 1500 fps, for very nice expansion, 420 ft lbs.
