...The bull's eye?

OK, being serious now. I'm shooting this gun more accurately than I've shot most, if not all, of the guns I've owned since I can remember. It really seems as though it shoots itself. I'm wondering if it is a combination of the series 70 trigger and the checkering? It's really scaring me because I'm not doing anything differently than I do with all my other autos. Yes, the rail gun and CQBP are amazing... but this Clapp is haunted. :rock:

I just wonder how Mr. Clapp feels about having his name disrespected by the constant references to a venereal disease?

You guys need to grow up.:mad:

The politically correct police are one the case!!! It's sad day when you have to worry about offending people on a gun forum with a small comment of humor..

On to the topic on hand I believe the guys are correct that the sights probably have the largest influence on the accuracy but the checkering sure doesn't hurt!!

I'm sure that he's heard it all. In my experience it's "consider the source", as my last name is open to juvenile comments as well. This is a serious 1911 Forum and should be treated as such, and enjoyed.

Is the checkering as "locked in" and as comfortable as it looks?

It has nothing to do with political correctness, and everything to do with maturity, respect and common decency.
Three human attributes that are completely lost on most people today.
Oh, I'm not sorry. Did I offend you? :bawling:

I have had a very similar experience with the clapp.

I think it is partly due to the wider notch on the rear sight.
You know, I didn't even think about that. That's a very good point. Something is definitely different because I am NOT as good a shot as this gun would make one think. I'm also thinking the checkering might be partly responsible as well. I bitched and complained like a little pu$$y about that checkering initially... but I think it helps my grip. I own and have owned checkered 1911's, but the Clapp seems to be a bit different. I pull my targets down and think: "Damn... was that really me?" :eek:

How can you tell that by just looking at two pictures?
What about his children and other people with the same last name?
Would you want your family name referenced like that on the internet?

I've come to expect a higher maturity level from this website.
I just hope guys like you don't ruin that expectation.

My first thought was why it took so long for these kinds of threads. But I didn't bother to do a search to see if there was a spate of these a few years ago.

No, it's a recent issue. I guess it's because school is out and high school kids have nothing better to do.
And it's indicative of the lack of respect that the younger generation has for anything of real value, like a person's name and reputation.

Geesh, it's not like he was saying Mr. Clapp is a kiddy raper or something. I think he was just trying to be a little humorous here on the forum.

Do high schoolers even know what "the clap" is these days? I figured anyone who used that term would be somewhat older.

Yeah, isn't it belly-laughingly funny how the perpetually offended "mature" crowd in this forum doesn't even know the difference between the "Clapp" and the "Clap". Alzheimer's perhaps? Or maybe they just need a stiff regimen of Metamucil? :rolleyes:
