Thanks Mr Browning, esp for your Hi-Power.
Anyone know where I could get one of those metal POW type bracelets inscribed with WWJMBD instead of the usual WWJD(What would Jesus do)?

In most malls there is a chain store called "Things Remembered" they have the bracelets you referred to. They will engrave anything you wish on them.

Good info, Maddock. Thanks. I didn't know he died in Leige, Belgium. Leige was one of Hitler's objectives during the Battle of the Bulge (on his way to Antwerp). He wanted to split the Allies in two and also to open a sea port. Maybe it was the memory of JMB having died there that gave the Allies the extra will to resist!

I knew there was a reason I liked his guns! He was only one day away from having the right birthday! ;) :D

I would raise a toast in celebration, but J.M. wouldn't approve.
I hope your day was fantastic Tamara.
I just got an E-Mail that Jeff Gonzales is having a handgun class on my birthday next month. That would be a nice present to myself. :cool:

Happy B-D to Gawd's Gun Prophet on Earth.
Through divine inspiration, he gave us the greatest handgun cartridge ever - 45 ACP - and the vehicle with which to deliver it - 1911 pistol.
