    I can honestly say I’ve never put an idiot scratch on a 1911 before now. It would be my luck that the first time is on my Chambers custom commander. Fawk! 674D5996-B364-4D2B-9472-28F312385275.jpeg

    My condolences. Know, I too, have a mark I’ve refused to post about. My mark is way, way, worse.

    Put it in the safe until you send it back. Grab another gun and forget about it. Or set in on a table for a couple of days and tell your Wife............I told you not to touch it!

    I’m sorry.....that brought tears to my eyes.

    In keeping with my luck, if you're going to do it, do it big.

    I would have to fix that.....would drive me crazy!

    Hang in there.....the pain will ease.

    I suspect everyone has done it, although that probably doesn't help. :meh:

    Dang that's a wicked pisser.
