    I'm not very adventerous when it comes to trying new things. I can work on diesels quite well.... minor things on cars like starters and breaks.

    Guns... i'm not overly enthusiastic about taking them too far apart. HOWEVER i would still like to hear your tutorial on the subject.....

    The only "Poor Man's" trigger job is used on single action Rugers which includes releasing one leg of the trigger return spring and pushing forward on the cocked hammer with a lot force as you pull the trigger. It works OK for lightening up the trigger pull, but does nothing for the creep. Some say doing this is ok, others cringe when you tell them what you are doing. In essence you are supposedly mating the surfaces between the hammer and sear. Ruger SAs are pretty strong. I don't know if I would do that to a 1911.

    Oh, thanks for sharing that with me. Since I don't really know anything about shooting or building a 1911, I guess this is a bad idea.

    After detecting the sarcasm, I reread my response. When I wrote that answer I mispoke. The only "Poor Man's" trigger job I had heard of was the procedure I described that I found in an article by Jeff Quinn of Gunblast.com. I did not mean to intimate there wasn't a "PM's" trigger job for a 1911. I was ineptly attempting to say that I had only heard of one for SA revolvers, i.e. Rugers and didn't know if such a procedure was suitable for 1911s.

    TheGunClinger: As I posted before I didn't intend to impune anyone's knowledge. Sometimes my fingers have a hard time keeping up with my brain when typing a response and then I further complicate matters by not proof reading my message before sending it. I can multitask though, so I will go read this article while removing my foot from my mouth.

    I fully understand. I am on here to learn from the experts and am open to anything. I have much to learn and am getting an education from the many members of this forum. My wife is also an RN and she would consider this forum to be a sort of like CEU's. Welcome to the forum!

    When he is back I need his input on the Fire Dragon Buffer System vs increasing recoil spring weight vs Sprinco Buffer system for +P ammo refered to in another post of mine.

    I don't know if Shooter45 can answer that one as he is into firearms and not into sphincter control. However... I am quite the expert on my sphincter buffer system for not only +P butt also for the dreaded FIRE DRAGON which causes many around me to RECOIL and SPRING away no matter their WEIGHT.
    So if you need advice on matters of sphincter control, feel free to PM me.:D

    It appears you are keenly in touch with your inner self. However, I am interested in any knowledge regarding various 1911 recoil reduction systems, i.e. the Fire Dragon and Sprinco systems in particular.

    I know. That's why I said you were in touch with your inner self. I was being a smart azz back at you. I couldn't get the smiley button to work. The part about the recoil buffers was an attempt to see if anyone knew of them who hadn't seen my other post. My skin is pretty thick after dealing with doctors for over 20 years. No offense taken. :D
    Edit: I figured out the smilies.
