"Of course the 1911 is an outdated design. It came from an era when weapons were designed to win fights, not to avoid product liability lawsuits. It came from an era where it was the norm to learn how your weapon operated and to practice that operation until it became second nature, not to design the piece to the lowest common denominator. It came from an era in which our country tried to supply its fighting men with the best tools possible, unlike today, when our fighting men and women are issued hardware that was adopted because of international deal-making or the fact that the factory is in some well-connected congressman's district. Yes, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the 1911 IS an outdated design....and that's exactly what I love about it." - Rosco S. Benson

"I promise you a day of reckoning that you won't live long enough to never forget." - Joe Sarno (Way of the Gun)

Longbaugh: "Who are you?"
Sarno: "I'm the guy you might meet one night. Maybe next week - maybe a year from now, when you wake up with a pillow over your head. And the last thing you'll hear is a little pop."

"If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
The thing I like best about this quote is that it is from the Dalai Lama. :rock:

One from someone who tried to kill the Dalai Lama: "Political power grows from the barrel of a gun." Mao Zedong

Mao's comment is especially interesting to keep in mind when viewing this:

This is why the English have gun control. Political authority may be derived from the people, but authority without power is easily subverted.
