I decided to write about all the carry handguns I have seen. I personally believe that you must keep your own carry gun clean, and I mean spotless because your very life depends on it. Some of the worst offenders are in Law Enforcement and when they need to use it, it may be too late as it will go click instead of bang. IT COULD RESULT IN YOU GETTING A BRAND NEW TOE TAG.
Most of the old timers my age are gone and are in cemetaries and or nursing homes. No one has ever had a lease on life and no one knows what tomorrow will bring but I take every precaution imaginable when it comes to carrying a firearm. I buy the best cleaners money can buy, that are safe for plastics and polymers. I buy the very best lubricant and I use Militec as I have been for many years.
Most people do not know how to clean a gun of any kind, they simply think that running a patch through the bore with a bore cleaner does the job, they just do not know and have never been taught proper procedures. All my carry guns are treated different than my others, for example I use a baked moly procedure on all my barrels and then wipe it down with Militec.
I use mainly superior products from other industries because the gunsmithing products are outdated and these other industries are far ahead in superior products. I do not teach gunsmithing and never will but I point people in the right direction. At this point in time I will take in selected trigger work, Providing it has not been butchered by some one else.
There are very few NEW GUNS MANUFACTURED TODAY THAT I WOULD BUY. I consider the Ruger revolvers the best buy today and they have retained a solid well made revolver built like a tank and they do not have a lock which is a cure for a problem that never existed in the first place. Unless you have learned gun safety you have no business owning a firearm.
I have read atricles of pure stupidity saying that the new locks on all SW revolvers are fine and ok. Let that author tell his BS to the man or woman that owns an SW revolver that dropped it on concrete and the safety "ENGAGED" by itself and the owner had no SW lock key to dis- engage the safety. Some of these gun writers have no clue what they are talking about, they write in order to please the advertisers and their respective editors, its all BS.
I have always been a realist. I buy LPS ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER that is called MICRO X. It is very expensive, it is a superb cleaner and very safe on plastic of any kind. I am not about to buy a contact cleaner that contains METHYLENE CHLORIDE which is paint remover and will eat your plastic gun as you spray it.
I just love this parrallel, its like going to a LEXUS dealer and asking him how many miles per gallon does this Lexus get and can I use cheap regular gas in it. Your semi auto pistol is at the mercy of the ammunition you use. People that eat gargbage eventually get sick and die, its that simple. Only you can put a price on your life. MANY PEOPLE BUY AND USE CHEAP JUNK AMMUNITION IN THIS HIGH PRICED SEMI AUTO AT THE RANGE.
There is nothing wrong with reloaded ammunition but most people buy progressive presses and want to make as many rounds in an hour as humanly possible. I have reloaded ammunition since I am 18 years old. I only used a single stage press and it took me a good hour to make 50 rounds but they were superb. I never took a short cut, as in my trigger work I do not take short cuts of any kind.
Lives have always depended on me and they still do to some extent, I will only buy the best products money can buy. Your life is very important to me. I have now entered my fifth street gun project. I have been very pleased with most of the people we have had in these projects and I will continue to do this with my partner Mr. Camp as long as my health holds up.
I want to thank those people for reading my bloggers, hard times are coming. The middle class in this country is all but gone and unless you prepare for hard times now and own a firearm you will not survive.

NEW ITEMS AT ISMI SPRING COMPANY
NEW CHROME SILICON SPRINGS NOW AVAILABLE FROM ISMI SPRING COMPANY, CALL MARC AT 800 773 1940
Following is info for the J frame springs and the recoil springs for the
J Frame spring set: hammer & trigger rebound - price $9.95 per set
Springs are wound from certified aerospace spec chrome silicon wire. After
winding the springs are then heat treated and stress relieved. The hammer
spring is slightly lighter than the nominal stock spring while the trigger
rebound spring is approximately 11% lighter than the stock spring. Bear in
mind, that due to variances in bulk lots of material, we have measured as
much as ± 25% variance in the load exerted by the stock music wire springs
as well as some of the more popular aftermarket music wire springs. The
design of the hammer spring will insure reliable ignition under all
circumstances and temperature extremes. The lighter trigger rebound spring
will provide for a smoother & lighter single action trigger pull.
Operating temperatures are important as wire mills do not recommend the use
of music wire when temperatures are 0° F or lower. The maximum service
temperature for music wire is 250° F but spring performance can be affected
at temperatures as low as 175° F. Chrome silicon has a service temperature
range of -100° F to 750° F.
Because of the design parameters, materials & post-winding processing; the
ISMI chrome silicon springs will take a significantly smaller amount of set
than their music wire counter parts.
Smith & Wesson M&P recoil springs - price $8.95 each
ISMI recoil springs for the S&W M&P pistols are wound from certified aerospace
spec chrome silicon wire. After winding the springs are heat treated and
stress relieved. The recoil springs utilize rectangular section spring wire
(flat wire) similar to the factory spring. The ISMI springs will work with
the factory guide rod. Spring life should increase 10X when compared to the
music wire counterpart. Spring rates available: 13#, 15#, 17#, 20# & 22#.
