My pleasure Rev. If you or anyone can glean something from the articles that will help then it's all worth the time to look into it. Also, it's nice to have someone on the forum that takes the interest you do.Threetango, thank you very much for posting that long and helpful post! Those myths are persistent even among knowledgeable shooters.
It's nice to hear an article backed up by personal experience! Thanks for sharing.Truth be told...I've fired two fully loaded magazines from a 1911a1 that had been that way for decades...the ammo was marked Frankford Arsenal and was dated '43.
The original box still had 36 cartridges left in it. It was my grandfathers...and his brother...my uncle...let me shot the 14 before he took the Remington Rand for his collection.
