I'm absolutely furious about the damage one of my poor firearms got today. So, a friend of mine is at the house excitedly telling me all about the new 1911 he had purchased a few days ago. He knows I love 1911s and asked if I'd show him how to disassemble one for cleaning. Sure I say, no problem at all. Off to the safe I go, and back I come with two flawless 1911s for demonstration purposes. I hand him one to take apart with me. Yeah, you know where this is going. I now have an idiot scratch on my Springfield Mil-Spec that goes from the trigger guard all the way to the top of the god forsaken slide. I should have known better. He felt terrible about it, but I could have throttled him anyway. I explained about the idiot scratch several times before we got started. Argh! I wish I could cuss here.
