Les Baer TRS 1911 with 30,000 Rounds

I will say this right up front: I have a pet peeve. Especially when it concerns 1911 users. The hypocrisy. Have your attention yet? About to be offended? Relax. Hear me out. One syndrome I dislike in the 1911 community is the obsession on “perfection”. On one hand, you will see this group talk about how the “1911 got it …
