Welcome to the forum!
Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

to the forums from the Wiregrass! Here are my babies, a .38 M&P from 1948 with long throw action and a period correct box. And, a C series M&P, pre-model 10, from July 1949. Notice the pre-10 has a round butt.
