    Thanks for the condolences my wife fought a good fight for over 13 months but in the end she lost.

    Thankfully the brain caner got her so she went peacefully it kind of just shut her down and she passed in 16 hrs of losing conciseness.
    She started with breast caner and it moved to her lungs, spine and brain.
    The spine caners took her legs and lower half from her for the last few months
    The lung cancer was getting bad but in the end she shut down with the brain cancer and went peacefully.
    She wanted to come home so we got her in home hospice for the last month or so of her life which is me caring for her 24/7 and a nurse coming in when she need them.

    I do not wish what we endured on anyone but i would not trade the last few month with her for anything.

    That's a lot, Gregg. I'm glad to hear it sounds like she had peace, and was able to pass on at home, with you there. I can't even imagine.
    Although it's late, and our church services have been suspended, I'll add her to our prayers for those that have passed on, and you for support.

    Will

    not bad for a $350 including tools to build it, and yes it runs fine with ball ammo i will work on the feed ramp and get it working with hollow points later one.

    all i used to build it was a green scratch pad to remove rust form the lower, a small harbor fright file set, some cold bluing, a plunger staking tool, and a dremel tool to polish parts, break cleaner to remove oil when bluing it..
    i did replace 2 springs i did not like how it ran so i replaced the main spring to improve the trigger and the recoil spring was to long "and made it cycle slow" so i used a old one had from a rock island that was wore out.
    it now has a 3lb trigger pull and cycles fast.

    If you want a challenge build a 1911 not one part is going to fit with out some work.

    Looking good Mangyrat! That 1911 build, was it a kit gun or something you picked up that needed work done to it?
    Yay! Cigars!

    the 1911 was a build.
    The striped frame is from PSA and the rest was form SARCO other than grips and main spring.
    If you decide to try building one the day you get the striped frame blue it or it will rust.

    I picked up the parts on sale so the basic gun was $312, the grips were on clearance at PSA for $20 i think

    The apocalypse happens when uncle sugar runs out of $ to give to the ghetto goblins till then things will just chug along.
    People around here are panic buying guns right and left, i get asked a few times a week if i have any ammo or guns i want sell.

    Yeah, funny how it was so hip and "in" to be anti-gun........until people think they have a need to defend them selves.

    I heard a HUGE, but far away explosion the other night at like 12:30 am. My first thought was "those silly meth heads" then i got my 45 out and put it by my bed.
