Before you even begin comparing a bare bones Springfield Mil-Spec 1911-A1 Pistol with an upgraded version it is important to know what purpose you have for the gun. Invariably, some upgrades are more suited for self defense while others are better for target shooting.
If you don’t know how each upgrade changes the gun’s capacity to shoot accurately, reliably, or in small groups, it is all to easy to wind up with a weapon that doesn’t meet your needs. Have a look at some of the most common upgrades and how they change the functionality of the base weapon.
Through the years, I’ve noticed preppers tending to fall into one of two categories, when it comes to self-defense.
The first category is the survivalists who are all about guns and bullets. Their self-defense strategy is to outgun the other guys by having more firepower. The second is into other types of weapons. While they might not be against firearms in general, they don’t want to depend on them for their survival.
As could be expected, the recent shooting in Las Vegas has brought the gun grabbers out of the woodwork (or wherever they hide) to moan and bewail the NRA preventing them from enacting what they call “common sense gun laws,” while accusing anyone and everyone who isn’t in their camp of condoning murder.
This is nothing new, as they follow the leftist philosophy of “never letting a good crisis go to waste”.
The target of the gun grabbers this time is the bump fire stocks that the killer used in murdering 59 people and wounding over 500 more.
I must start off by saying that walking through the mind of a terrorist with my dainty little feet is no easy task. These individuals are some of the most perverted, disgusting, sad excuses for living beings that we will ever know in this world.
But, clearly, they are not stupid.
Nevertheless, if we are to put an end to their attempts to ruin our culture, we must understand what they see as our greatest weaknesses and extrapolate how they will move to exploit them. It is my sincere contention that gun control is something terrorists love because it creates a weakness they can exploit at every level of our personal and social existence.
