I have had conversations with gun writers and gunsmiths all over this country. Conversations none of you would ever be priviled to have, I know from their conversations when we get into a technical discussion, what they know and what they do not know. What I say here is public. I call a spade a spade, I have no disire to keep offending people but I have the advantage of knowing how the game is played from the inside. I do not hide from anyone and if they want to talk with me about the article they have written my number is 281 277 4008. I can back up anything I have said, with technical experience I have had. I had good intentions of trying to educate some of you but as a hole, only the ones with an open mind will ever under stand where I am coming from. I certainly am not stopping any one from defending them selves, I will discuss any detailed article ever written by anyone. I do not speak for any one but myself. If some one wants to stick up for their friends with out knowing what they are talking about, that just shows how ignorant they really are. I do not expect to be commenting much longer on this forum anyway. I have had 60 articles written about the quality of my work by some excellent gun writters.

I do think sometimes net is the bane of tactful replies and makes some people come off worse than they actually are.
Hmm! After reading the thread again, maybe I was wrong. Some people come off just like they are.
It would appear there is a good customer base, business is good, and therefor tact and self-control are no longer a necessary concern. Its hard for me to get past the conceit and learn anything. So why try, when there are several good gunsmiths on this forum that still have that hungry look in their eye and conduct themselves as a teacher not preacher.
As someone new to the 1911 and custom work in general I am sort like a starving dog wanting to eat. I really do appreciate the input of everyone, especially those of you building these fine firearms.
