    Actually, if you use one a bit you may find that they are fairly well balanced and quite accurate.

    Nice looking pistol...... but not nice enough to replace any of my 1911's with...

    As with all things firearms..... it's a matter of personal preference. :)

    That old Broom Handle is a beautiful gun, both to look at, and to shoot! It will always be a highly colectable fire arm. I wonder why it's no longer made? Yet the 1911 is still around, and used by millions every day! That speaks a lot for it, and while my lust for a highly collectable gun does rise when I look at that old Broom Handle, I wouldn't trade my 1911A1 for one as a SD hand gun!

    Hm, mag change anyone? No competition.
    Stopping power anyone? No competition.
    Reliability? No competition.
    1911 wins every time.

    I have fired both, no competition.

    Carver hit it in the bullseye when he mentioned fact that they are not made anymore and 1911s are (by the thousands even 99 years later).

    Whoever made that sign can take the butplug-handle off of that firearm and put it back where it came from.:D....and melt the rest of it down into spare 1911 parts. You know, make the metal useful for something.:rolleyes:

    Seriously, cool weapon. Not 1911 cool, but cool.

    Broomhandle? Sweet..... if it's good enough for Han Solo (customized broomhandle made to look like a laser gun), then its good enough for me!!!

    All kidding aside, I'll stick to my 1911's.:cool:

    Very funny JLA, very funny. Just take care you don't go too far. I did. That's right. I blasphemed the 1911. And for that I am being made to pay. Yes, I have a fatwa on me. I blasphemed the 1911 and it earned me a fatwa. The 1911 mullah of Orlando put a fatwa on me for blaspheming the 1911 and now I dare not travel through or to Orlando. I had to go to Kissimmee by way of Tampa! BEWARE JLA.:eek: You've even got the Brits mad at you.:eek:

    You do have to admit though, the ergonomics of the Mauser are near perfect.

    Churchill used the mouse-handled boomer in Afghanistan. He was captured, and they took it from him. Later, he replaced it. With a 1911.

    Now, I've got a mouse-handled boomer. I think they are neat guns. But I only have one of 'me. Got somewheres near a dozen 1911s. They are neater.
