  1. I enjoy my Sunday mornings. The only peace I get.
  2. What I did many years ago to improve my trigger pull was to make it as difficult as possible. I got a Daisy 1911 BB pistol. Absolute WORST trigger you can imagine. 1/2" pull at around 8 lbs and felt like rubbing two bricks together. Practice like that until you can keep the sights on the center of the target through the entire pull. Once you get to that point, your competition pistol is gonna be a dream. I have always believed in making practice as hard as possible. It should be real work. Then the match is easy.
  3. Divorce her immediately! Any woman that would do something like that for her husband MUST be batshite crazy. Seriously, though, very nice pistol and the wife is a keeper. Any woman who understands what is important to to you is worth holding onto forever.
  4. BTW: On the subject of lightening; one of the new projects I'm planning is a new racegun built on a Caspian double stack with a commander slide. Taking 3/4"off the front of the slide will lighten it without compromising integrity.
  5. Yes. That is an ad straight from Caspian's website. Getting ready to order a couple High & Tights for new projects.
  6. If you have some sandpaper, (or the wife's nail emery) sand down the area under the afflicted finger to relive it enough to balance out the pressure. If your sights are returning to original point of aim, that is more important than where the sight goes. So at this point, you don't want to change your grip. make the gun fit you. Remember too, you don't have to have a death grip on the gun. If you're squeezing hard enough to cause pain, it's prob'ly a little too hard. Back off just a hair.
  7. Just a thought. I been using Caspian slides and frames for years and never had a failure.
  8. Lowes or Home Depot. get a 4" wide roll of Anti-skid tape like you'd use on porch steps. Been using it for years and I actually like the feel better than any checkering.

    "You Were Lucky"

    Spit balls? You were lucky! We couldn't afford a used newspaper to make them with and couldn't afford spit either. I spent every free minute (about 3.5 every day) searching the banks of the swamp we lived in for pebble just the right size and roundness for ammo.

    "You Were Lucky"

    .45? Revolver? You were lucky! I had to compete with a single shot, hand pump Daisy pellet pistol with no grip panels and sights carved out of a soggy corn cob! I had to fire 3 shots just to make minor and an average stage took me 3 weeks to shoot. You really need to do this video.
  11. I can tell you from experience that "cheap" never is. Even if it's a top quality piece to start with, if the owner is selling it cheap, there's a reason.
  12. If these are any indication.... Yeah. I'll be seeing it soon.
  13. You are a bus driver. On you first stop you pick up 5 passengers. On your second stop you pick up 3 more. On your 3rd stop 5 get on and 4 get off. On your 4th stop 7 get on 3 get off. On your 5th stop 6 get on and 9 get off. on your 6th stop all the passengers get off. What is the bus driver's name?
