The Walther CCP was created to provide a softer shooting experience by using a gas-delayed blow-back system (soft-coil system) to drastically reduce felt recoil. This system also enables Walther to install a light recoil spring which allows the pistol’s slide to be easily manipulated when charging a round. The Walther CCP was marketed to female shooters, senior citizens and others who lack the needed hand strength to manually work the upper slide. It was a brilliant idea.
In the last 10 years, we have seen incredible increases in Americans receiving their concealed carry permits. These are people who understand that the safety and protection of themselves and their families fall on them. As many in the media demonize those who choose to carry a gun, it was recently reported that 17.25 million Americans have obtained their concealed carry permits. That large number doesn’t take into account that millions of Americans legally open carry a handgun which increases the overall number of people carrying a gun even further.
When entering a gun store, my advice is for people to keep their ego in check, mind their business, conduct themselves in a professional manner and keep all guns cased and unloaded with the breech locked open. For guns that do not lock open, a chamber flag is a nice touch.

Let’s face it, 1911’s are incredible handguns that are beautifully historic, functionally superior and amazingly accurate shooting handguns. You guessed it, I’m a huge fan of 1911’s. There is nothing like that short single action trigger that makes an average shooter feel like a professional. When I’m having a rough day at the range, I load up my full-size Desert Eagle 1911G and my problem is solved. The supreme accuracy a 1911 handgun delivers is a confidence booster that, in my opinion, cannot be duplicated.
When it comes to the issue of the Second Amendment, there is no lack of passion from opponents and supporters alike.
