I believe most will see this as idiotic, some may enjoy or laugh at it, and a few may even get something out of it. Thank goodness there weren’t cameras like these in my prime since I’ve done a lot worse. lol. Much of what I record is kept unlisted, but thought I’d share this to maybe liven the forum up a bit to end 2018.

Why frozen mud? It was once suggested (jokingly I think) by another member several years ago. It sounded like a terrible idea to me, so I waited til it got cold and did it. That 1911 passed, but I somewhat cheated by placing blue tape over a few areas I didn’t want mud in. I needed to do it right with no cheating, except an ear plug protecting the muzzle. I’ve tested 1911’s in other scenerios as well, but there’s just something special about a 1911, mud, and a hatchet.

I won’t get into why I do this type of stuff, but in the end, it’s fun and a learning experience. These are the types of range trips I’ll never forget.

When I was packing them up the day before with mud, I thought there was no way these would perform. Guess you’ll have to watch the video to find out. I will note that the Cabot finish held up great and looks as it did the day I got it, just as Rob @AlchemyCustomWeaponry said it would. The Cerakote finish performed awesome on the BEC @lsbbigdog as well with no scractches to be found. The Rogers has several scratches from previous incidents, but the stainless is also did great. @crc wanted a video...so here you go. haha
