Realizations

I just realized a couple things.

First, I seem to like the alternative round in a classic design better than the original.  6.8 in an AR and .38 Super in a 1911.

Hi!  I am McThag and I'm a heretic.

Second.  The new Colt has no magazine safety and no loaded chamber indicator.  It has a firing pin block, but other than that it's the same level of dangerous as a made in 1912 gun.

There's only my wits and prudence keeping the gun from going off unintended.

And I like it that way.

Two of my .25's have magazine safeties and I just cannot help but think that "feature" is asking for an accident to happen.
