This past week I spent some time out in Iowa doing some ammo testing for a project I have coming up. I decided to bring the Rock Island 1911 out to test their 9mm offerings, and as usual I was completely satisfied with its performance. The video is mostly me just messing around and wasting ammo, but it’s neat to see how flat the gun runs with 147gr match ammo.
As of today, the Rock Island has 3040 rounds on it…still with zero failures of any type. This gun is absolutely a triumph, and one of my favorite guns of all time.
The Sig Nightmare Fastback is now at approximately 1700 rounds, and we’re closing in on the finish line. However, it’s begun to develop an unusual tendency to double feed when using Winchester white box ammo. After some testing, I’ve come to the conclusion that this is likely because the WWB has a shorter OAL than all the other types of ammo I’ve used. The question then is should I count these malfunctions against the gun? I’ve not been able to reproduce them with any other brand of ammo.
Now we’re at Rule 3 in the 4 Rules: Never point your weapon at something you’re not willing to destroy. Pretty easy, right? Today we’ll see what happens when we apply a little critical thinking to it.

In today’s video, I don’t shoot anything, I don’t review any gear, I just…walk. But the point here is to address the people who’ve commented on my videos that “appendix carry isn’t comfortable for all day wear.” To which I say “bollocks” because if I can walk 7 miles in under 2 hours with a gun at the AIWB position and no undershirt, then it’s perfectly comfortable.
