Even though I had convinced myself that I would continue my NRA membership for its support of the President if not for my low opinion of its top heavy, lack luster effort to support me...... they have now ordered that 1911's cannot be used in something the NRA calls "Carry Guard" classes. Gaston Gluuuck and his dear friend George Saros apparently etching their way into the NRA's inner sanctum. So since the NRA no longer supports my 'firearms world', why do I support them? In effort to find recreation in my 'firearms world' I cruise through thefireamsblog. Just in time to see the owners video announcing the 5 most over rated handguns. His first statement is that he wishes he could just have listed 1. 1911 2. 1911 3. 1911 4. 1911 5. 1911. So I go to the worlds largest 1911 forum just to see its general forum filled, as usual with "I love the 1911, its great for BBQ's but I live by my gluuck" threads. Hey lets try facebook, the worlds most liberal sanctuary! I check out several 1911 owners group pages I belong to. Oh yeah I forgot..... its anything goes tuesday or everything goes sunday or some other millenial tradition. So hundreds of meme's showing rusty 1911s being stomped on by melted framed gluucks and hundreds of 6 day a week 1911 group page members announcing that they secretly only wear, use, and rely on little bitty gluucks or excessively long gluucks stuck down their pants pointing into their testicles. That they really think 1911's are funny pieces of history and those who prefer them are pitiful old men who could not honestly defend themselves. It truly offends me when they with their modern public school taught knowledge, announce they really don't think that the greatest generation was really able to fight for their country using non plastic pistols and rifles weighing over 3lb.s. When I go to the range I'm scorned at by employees who consider me stupid for not shooting gluuck, wearing gluuck t shirts and 511 swat pants all while struggling to find the last inch of clear flesh to paint dragons and devil on to. I gave up on internet morons long ago, even when expecting the peace and fellowship of 1911 purposed groups/pages. But now the NRA penalizes me for my preferred tool of involvement in the firearms world we share? So much for gathering up the troops to battle for our rights. The NRA has dumped me for a younger more tattoo'ed demographic. If it be from print gun media, internet gun media or live in the flesh fellow gun enthusiasts, I have been dumped for an oddly dressed demographic that doesnt have the brains to try to figure out a safety lever.
