    How many 1911 lovers amongst us would be willing to bet oh say...$1,000. The bet would be for you to show up with 300 rounds of ammo of your choice and the 1911 of your choice. Then proceed to shoot the 300 rounds without a SINGLE malfunction of any kind. No...failure to load, fire, extract, eject, or lock the slide back. Absolutely no alibis. Just curious who would be willing to do this???

    Need more details. Can I add oil? How fast do I have to shoot that 300 rounds? Asking for a friend.

    1,000 is steep. Might be an interesting competition to have at Battery Oaks in October though. Put $200 in pot, you choose what gun/ammo you want to use plus 300 rounds and see who can go the distance. Winners split pot?

    What's the payback for a successful run, hopefully more than just getting your money back and also who gets the thousand if the ole girl hiccups.

    I think you either win 1k or lose 1k. Paying $60 in ammo to win 1k is not a bad return. :)

    What if I am such a high level 1911 shooter I can clear the malfunction before you notice it happened. LOL

    I’d maybe go $100 but I’d spend more than that in ammo because cheap bulk ammo would be my worry first on the wink link ... failure to fire ammo related ... not my 1911. I’ve run classes where we’d go thru 500+ rounds and not had a hiccup but a couple Murphy’s Ammo Company F-T-F’s.

    ETA: would you bet it on ANY firearm ... Glock, Sig, S&W, etc with bulk ammo and the failure to fire from a bad round?

    If I bring enough 1911s, can I win the compound like Han Solo won the Millenium Falcon? (I might be digging a hole I can't get out of?!?!)

    That is the true test of a die hard 1911 shooter. If you have shot them enough you have had all manner of stoppages. If you have truly mastered the platform you can clear those malfunctions in your sleep, beat on the gun and get it back into the fight faster than most people can change a mag. I have guns that I "think" would be up to the task but not sure I have the $1000 to back it up. LMAO

    Lol, I see you getting very wealthy. The failure to fire would be easy money if you provide the ammo.

    I’d run my eighty-year-old 1911 against that bet.

    If this was a Glock challenge I'd agree but I am expecting my slide stop or barrel to break around 15-20k rounds.

    WHAT IF for the battery get together we set up a sliding scale based on gun price and reputation. You put up say $50 and if you own a glock you have to shoot 200 rounds without fail, taurus 50 rounds. Then do a second round and the winner or winners split the cash.

    I'll take that bet on 200 with my G-19, and all day long on the Taurus for 50. But, with the G-19, we may need to extend the gtg to a few more days, lol. Gonna take awhile.
