If I have ever had a complaint about my Rock Island 9mm it would have to be the ambi safety. I’m cool with ambi safeties and I didn’t swap to single sided because I have any particular dislike of them in general, I just didn’t like the set that comes equipped. They ride a little low, and the right side bites into my first knuckle. It was never really an issue in actual use, but I plugged in this higher riding Wilson and a new sear pin, and for me, the difference is huge. I’ve had this gun a pretty long time now, and always talked about a single sided safety, but just wasn’t sure about the fitting. Turns out, no problem. Once you get an understanding of what the safety does, then it’s pretty obvious how to fit it.
So after a little refinement this is my new list, I rethought some things and added some new stuff (stolen from other lists). I should clarify I’d be hunting in the woods around the Mid Section of Ontario. It’s spring now I’d expect lows at night no greater than -5 Celsius and highs of 15 Degrees Celsius. These are thick woods lots of moss covered ankle breaking rock and deadfall. No great elevations but lots of lakes and lots of green. Granted I’m in more Wendigo Country but maybe that can be a game for another time. I’m planning this with the expectation that I’d be with a similarly equipped squad sized team. Drew most of my inspiration for change from @grumpyvikingdidnothingwrong@john-paul-jonesing-for-liberty@canadian-carbine and @bigredm38
Remington Rand was most notable for their typewriters before they began making 1911a1’s for the US government during WWII. This one is original to it’s date, 1945, and is photographed with an era correct holster.
Promise that you don’t have to let everyone else in the world know that you like guns just by dressing like you just found out about the 5.11 webstore. patch panels in public is one of the dead giveaways that you like ar15’s and suck glock dicks. here you have a picture of myself in the old man Tommy Bahama Kit. I should be carrying a 1911 in a leather holster!
My weekender leather kit. I have to commend the artisans for the handmade items. The BearClaw Brass and wood pen is amazing. Each pen is hand carved. The Donovan Leather Daily Planner not only looks great, it smells great.
