Re: For the Purist
I'm a gentle person, and Blasphemy, a strong word!
Also I am old, and, so less adaptive of changes in style, and direction.
I guess a gun should look and feel like a gun, IMHO.
I've shot the 1911 for over 40 years, and it feels like a gun, and looks like one, since I know few others.
The K-frame Smith, likewise, fits the bill. I own a dozen or more, J-frames, fine revolvers, but not as natural as the K.
I use plastic articles to wash the car, clean the toilet, and entertain the dogs, not, for defense, or offensive, purpose, as their reliability scares me!
It took 'til 1968 for me to trust an alloy framed Colt, a .45 Commander! Turned out to be a darned fine pistol; I still own and shoot it!
Purist? I really can't say, with conclusion. Pragmatist? Definitely!!!
