    Well not really.I inherited a USGI 1911 that came in parts and is in dire need of a through cleaning. When trying to take the frame apart I was unable to take the thumb safety off so I'm stuck.

    Would appreciate some help from someone in the San Antonio area who has experience with 1911.

    Would appreciate the help. I've never had this much trouble with a 1911.
    Maybe next weekend?

    See, I keep telling people to shoot their Glocks and show off their 1911s.

    When they don't listen we end up here......

    LOL!!!! Nah - it won't be the first time I've helped someone get a 1911 back into shootin' condition. It's just an obligation I feel we owe fellow shooters.

    Now, if he happens to trip an' fall on the way out the door an' has to go to get medical attention........
