Not An Exaggeration

Calling the CMP M1911A1's 'survivors' isn't hyperbole.

Six months after the Clinton Administration ordered them destroyed in 1993, 110,000 M1911A1's had been fed through Cap'n Crunch.

That was 1/3 of the 300,000 guns destroyed by this stupid policy.

The rate of destruction slowed somewhat because just 600,000 guns had been crunched up by 1995.

History wantonly destroyed.

Never mind that the parts were worth far more than the scrap value even if you destroyed the serialized part.

People talk about government waste in procurement, but seldom do we talk about it in disposal.
