But, something that I have been wanting to do for a bit is a simple post praising one of JMB's better ideas.
We are a gun blog, after all.
And the post title is fitting. Uncle Cart was an integral part of the Guard's response to some racially motivated unrest down in Macon. An old faded photo shows him in fatigues, sleeves rolled up, baseball, and a holstered 1911. But that's it. And the old flap holster is worn on his actual belt, not a web belt.
But that's a story for another time. Enjoy some gun porn.
Full sized .45 automatics.
Clockwise: S&W 4586 as issued by the Columbus PD until they went to the M&P .45; a Gen 3 Glock 21 with a TLR-1, Colt M-1991A1, and finally a Ruger P-345 with TLR-3.
The Ruger was a pawn shop special that I couldn't pass up. That was the last SA/DA auto Ruger made.
Pops bought me the Colt around the 7th grade because I picked up Star Scout. It's got some Wilson parts in it and a laundry list of upgrades I want to do to it.
The Glock 21 I bought new when I found out about Blue Label. Will talk about that later, too.
And the old 4586 belonged to my Father in Law. Whom after the Army was done with him spent a good career putting away bad guys for the Columbus PD. For low pay and a couple of shitty mayors. He's a good fella.
