    I never really considered a 1911 in 9mm until I recently sighted a 1911 long slide model in 9mm in. It shot amazingly well with barely any felt recoil and was accurate at 25 yards and really fast to...

    The difference between a collection and an accumulation is basically that a collection has a theme and direction. I have a large accumulation of guns but my collection consists of 15 Korth revolvers.
