Yep, going to be in the 30's up here. Snowing/slush now. Temp cut in half from yesterday. 

Glad this is my weekend to work. Weather's going to be crap.

Mornin' all, 11* 16 mph NW -4 windchill. Calling for Lake Effect today with windchills as low as -25. Going to be an ugly weekend in Paradise!

Playoff hockey at the College tonite, maybe I'll have to break out the Eddie Bauer goose down parka with the fur lined hood.

Mornin gentsCoffee

Dang! I'm the first one here on a Monday!? Is the Coffee House getting ready to file for chapter 11?

Low 30s going to mid 40s, then back to low 30s, with chance of rain and snow, and more cold and more rain, then more snow, then it gets warm againClownLoco This is just the time of year when you gotta bring all the clothes that you got.

I wouldn't drive the thing down a gravel road in Ky. I got a F250 for that.

Picked me up a NIB Colt M45A1 for a smidgen over $1500 out the door. 


The version I bought in the pic:





Doing dry fire drills, there is no way that trigger pull is any more than 4.5 lbs, which is the low end listed by Colt and it's pretty damn smooth. Not quite WC or Dan Wesson (my two favorite 1911's but cost A LOT more haha) elite, but i don't foresee any issues stringing together good groups once I get her warmed up. 

Fit certainly seems tight, plus it's a hefty pistol, and I must say I'm a big fan of the dual recoil springs. Everything I've read and seen in video's shows it to be a very soft shooting .45. 

Once we get on the other side of this crap late winter weather, I'll take her out and let everyone know how the first few outings go Big Smile

Well we're nearing a foot of snow, and it's still coming down. Winds are gusting up to 50 mph. Brutal. 

At least today is my day off. Always try to a find a positive in a crap situation. Big Grin

Off to snow blow.....

Mornin gentsCoffeeSick In Bed

Now that's a 45 PaulThunbs Up
The only changes I would make to it are, if it doesn't have night sights, I'd add them. I would also install a ambi A1 style safety and get rid of the extended safety, and install an extended slide release, but that's just me.

We didn't get the snow. We just got the cold and some of the wind.
