Got to agree. I've heard that the "new" paradigm is not mere accuracy, but rather a combination of speed, accuracy and power.

Seems to me that it has been the paradigm since that scene near the start of 2001 with the bone.


I don't have the model # handy, but I wasn't looking for pin stripes. Of the 70+ 10/22 magazines I have more than 40 are 10 rounders for target rifles (bull barrels, bedded stocks, aftermarket triggers yada yada), so this V has one of those long thin fore-ends with a beefy mount and reciever. To me though the trigger is paramount.

No. he knows what MOA is but aparently does not know what MOH is. Typical bullseye shooter.. what do you have ? something like 10min for 10 shots in that sport?

I'm not a bench rest shooter.

Typical corse of fire:
3 minutes: 2 rounds prone no front support, 2 rounds kneeling weak side, 1 round standing

Seems as though this topic should have more properly been pursued under the 'First World Problems' thread.

I got a question for you gun guys. Sorry for the slight thread drift but I was hoping someone might be able to tell me why. Toker villain, Ron Anderson, whoever.

short story here I was given roughly 1500 rounds .45 caliber. I have been wanting to exercise my 2nd amendment right as a U.S. citizen for quite some time, so I figured acquiring this ammo was a sign. so I purchased this bitchin 1911 .45 manufactured by Rock Island Armory

So this weekend I got to a place where I could fire the thing for the first time, it was super fun!!

But now here is the problem and I ask you guys in the know. in the below pic there are 2 different rounds. They are both .45 caliber rounds right? the one on the right will chamber into my gun no problem the round on the left will not. The gun will not chamber this round for some reason.

Besides the obvious difference, can you please educate me why?

That's exactly what is going on Ron.

Thanks for the quick reply.

About 1300 of the rounds I got are the cheap ones. any suggestions? can I sell them get what works? Is .45 ammo as hard to get these day as the .22 you guy talk about here. Man this bums me out!

Buy a Wilson Combat Magazine.
If that doesn't do it take it to a reliable gunsmith so he can inspect and polish the feed ramp.
A 1911 can typically be fine tuned to eat most ammo...

Real good grouping, son. But it's a free internet.

First to T2,
OK piece (though I'm not a big fan of ambidextrous safeties on a full size), but those wadcutters and it are a non starter.
And get yourself some extra magazines (but don't listen to Goul since Wilson plastic baseplates crack) and leather and use a better stance and presentation.

I have all the ball ammo you need, but would need a favorable exchange rate since they only work in one of my revolvers.



Now back to tradman;
Cooper may have said it loooooong ago, buttttttttttttt I was referring to a scene in a Stanley Kubrick film that, chronologically, predates him (unless he played the ape with the bone).

Country store is getting $0.55 plus tax/round?
Hell, I'll pay shipping and send you a carton of 550 rounds of Federal 36 gr for less than half that!
That's crazy!

Gun opinions (especially with the 1911) climbing opinions, people are passionate and insistent that they are right.
The Wilson mag has a real following... So do other mags.

I would suggest finding a 1911 pistol smith near u who can give it a look.

As a ref, mag issues are common
Feed ramp issues are VERY common. Odds are there are tool marks in there that should be polished out. Just have the smith do it... Cost is minimal and he can look it over for other potential causes.

Nice gun... Read up/practice ur form.

Enjoy shooting such a great gun!

thanks GhoulweJ I appreciate it as well as both Rons thanks for the input. That is a first time shooter stance haven't been shooting with anyone that can show me right from wrong yet.

What up with Riley? Is he for real? or is he joking?

Riley,
Nobody would enjoy the images you describe. They are all tragic. Surely you have experienced them first hand.

For that matter, I don't like any bad things happening to others, especially children.


There are many tales of woe and loss. Many of which could have been prevented by an armed citizen. I do not expect to change your mind in anyway... You are clearly passionate in your position. I too will not be swayed to your view.

I wish u peace and (assuming ur a doctor?) strength to continue doing what you do.

But you would be mistaken.

My point was that, yes, I realize it is that way where you are, but it certainly is not right here where I am.
