Re: wrong C.O.L
Not dangerously hot. But a little stouter than normal. I wouldnt run them with a recoil spring lighter than 18#. The XDM will be fine with them. any 1911 should be fine with them. Even at the current OAL.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
