I committed blasphemy yesterday. I spent the weekend set up at a local gun show. Selling a few "investments" due to recent work shortage. Last week I was going through my gun safes picking out what I wanted(needed) to part with. I was looking for redundencies. I have several .45 caliber pistols so I figured it wouldn't hurt too much to part with one of them. But which one? I have been a die hard 1911 man since I bought my first one some 25+ yrs ago. I only recently acquired a tupperware, dishwasher safe, plastic gun. So which one to sell? My Springfield Armory 1911 w/ Videcki trigger, Novak low mount sights, extended beavertail grip safety, skeletonized hammer, ambidextrous safety, Hoque rubber wraparound grips, OD green armor cote finish w/ 8rd clip, or, Springfield Armory 4" XD with accessory rail, surefire light and 4 13 rd clips? You would think it would be an easy decision. But I (gasp) decided to sale the 1911. And it sold. My reasoning for keeping the XD was the mounted flashlight, and the high capacity clips. Plus the fact that the tupperwares are much more prevalent at gun shows than a good 1911. ( a sad comment on the mindset of todays shooters!) And the fact that I have a "Micro-Compact" version that is identical to the full sized one. And my daily carry gun. So I sold my "loaded" 1911 and left the tupperware in the safe. Or did I leave it in the dishwasher? I'll have to go check. I feel like a traitor. I feel dirty.
