    • Maybe so....but even the most minor adjustments today become a huge undertaking, just because of lack of experience and know how....try and find someone locally who can "Really" work on and set up a 1911like a Jason Burton.....none that I know of and I probably know of most around......your right, it's a dying art that is almost dead.
    • Shooting common ammo is a consideration but nothing gives you the OTC ammo variety of a 357.  Wadcutters, std velocity,  +P,  +P+, and full 357s.  Power level for whatever your needs. Seems to me there is a lot of 357 ammo out there that is downloaded from SAAMI maximum pressures.  There is also 357 ammo that is loaded up to maximum pressures.
    • Eh... she's just a cranky bitch, nothing more complicated than that. The fact that her own adult daughter and friends just kept their mouths clamped shut during the whole episode tells you something about that woman and how she probably tends to handle things. I'm sure they knew she was heading straight into unhinged Bitchville.... and they didn't want to have her wrath turned on themselves.  Honestly, I love that she followed-up with that pathetic non-apology... she's just keeps digging the hole deeper... making a complete laughingstock of herself. Great entertainment value for the rest of us. 
    • Is there such a thing as asshole privilege? I hope not, because I have been missing out all these years.
    • she wasn't using her position in society. she was using her position in employment. if she were a black woman, would you be calling it "black privilege"?
