Going shooting today, we stopped at the Stop-n-Rob for drinks. The Sheriffs Deputy on the way out noticed my 1911, traded 'good morning' and left.
Clerk #1 noticed my spare mag and commented ' you've got a clip'.
Clerk #2 ' What's that for?'
Me 'My pistol' indicating the 1911 on my belt.
Clerk #1 'Cool man'
Clerk #2 'Oh' visibly surprised.
I'd only walked past Clerk #2 three times before this exchange. Clerk #1 picked it up on the first pass.
Carry your guns and stay safe.

I couldn't find a candle, but figure that _building_ a means to prevent violence should be a good substitute.
The details on this build are: started with a Springfield 'National Match' GI model, replace all of the fire control parts, flat trigger, new sights, beaver tail safety, undercut trigger guard, checker front strap, add ambi-safety and one piece mag well/main spring housing.
As is clear its a work in progress, but the list gets shorter every weekend. I need to finish blending the undercut job, and do the checkering, then its off to machining for sights and re-finishing.
