From the post below, I mentioned I had two malfunctions on one stage – here’s the match video from the stage. Please note, right at the end there is a single naughty word.
Does this mean that my Colt is unreliable? Not at all, in fact it’s still one of the most reliable 1911s I own. It does mean that in cold weather with low velocity semi-wadcutter rounds that I had two failures to feed out of magazines that have always worked otherwise. After having shot the gun later in the day, and it worked fine, I have to chalk those up to a perfect storm of weirdness.
And on the bright side, the malfs allowed me to an awesome malfunction clearance drill on camera. That was actually my favorite part of the video, because I didn’t stand there staring thunderstruck at my gun.
