Anyone ever dropped their pistol?
If we don't get in the habit of dropping our guns, does it really matter which version 1911 we have?
Maybe we should add one more rule to the four safety rules:
Don't drop your shootin' iron, especially directly on the muzzle.
I don't think that's something anyone ever intends on doing.
But no one ever intends to use their firearm for self-defense either.
It's just something we prepare for, and it never hurts to be prepared.
