    From another site and the poster (not one given to excess hyperbole) is writing about his Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911:

    "I got it in the early 70's as a carry gun when I was learning my trade by doing deals with lots of zeros in the Miami office of a big national law firm. I had to drive to work every day through dangerous areas of the city during the days of the infamous race riots, the Cuban "boat lift", the Haitian refugee "crisis", etc. There was a very serious chance of getting car-jacked in those places back then. Plus, we had several attempted break-ins at our home, including one Haitian guy who battered the steel front door to my house down out of its frame with a cement block before the cops could get there. He calmed down considerably when he met the .45 on the other side of the fallen door and waited peacefully for the cops to come, while laying on his stomach with his hands laced together behind his neck."

    That 1911 speaks loud without saying a word.

    A Model 1911 is a great equalizer. One of my favorites. All the best...

    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me In Downtown night before last.

    Date: 2010-05-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

    I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
    First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. The evening was not that cold, but I was wearing the jacket for a reason. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 ....45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... Isn't it?!
    I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
    After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!
    I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
    I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ... After I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
    Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.
    The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
    In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you, but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
    Thoughtfully yours,

    My wife had a guy cut her off and then follow her after she passed him to miss hitting him. She had our youngest in the Expedition with her at about four weeks of age and was in full momma grizzly mode. She led him to the police station where he decided he no didn't want to have a chat in their parking lot.

    When she told me where it happened, I knew the guy lived there and had pulled out of his driveway right in front of her, as that seems to be a habit of his, so I stopped by with the Expedition. Asked if he recognized the truck and he got a bit fuzzy, but I explained what happened saying "I'm not sure it was you but just in case it was..." He got a bit deflated when I mentioned my wife carries, had it out and ready to rock and he was literally one poor choice away from having a really bad day.
