    I can't wait to meet your bride!!!

    Sadly, some family obligations came up and she won't be able to come! If anyone needs an extra ticket for the Saturday Night dinner, get hold of me.

    I will have you know that I do not eat that stuff…ever. I tried it back in the early 80’s, just like sushi, a couple of times was enough…and it was tried to be polite to others. :P

    Just so you are aware, out in West Virginia, sushi is called bait! Hope your unloading goes smoothly tomorrow, prayers for you guys from here!

    The YouTube reviewer Honest Outlaw got one of the new Girsan Hi-Power copies (the MCP-35), and he liked it a lot. The 1911 forums seem to grade the Girsan and Tisas guns (both Turkish) as very nice entry-level guns, and most seem to think that they are as good or even slightly better quality (finish and forged frames) than the equivalent entry pistols from Rock Island Armory (which is from the Philippines). 

    I am under the impression that Browning Hi Power parts work in the Girsan guns, so I suspect (but can't prove) that their 45s would use aftermarket 45 parts. If you are looking at a model specific to Girsan, it is harder to say about spare parts availability.

    The good news is that the price point is pretty low, so maybe not such a risk to buy.

    I've had both Tisas and Rocks, the Rocks were better made than the Tisas,  more accurate, and the Tisas did not like JHP rounds. In the 21st Century, a 1911 that won't run JHPs is sad.
