My 2% of a buck...

I think Barry O's presidency is actually a good thing. It has clearly revealed the socialist agenda of so many...too many...of our elected officials. They campaign on the "Little Guy" promise to get the seat...then work toward what they want instead of what is best for the country. His support base is falling apart, and even many of the nanny state teat feeders who lined up to vote for him have started to wonder what in the blue bloody hell they've done.

Back to the mainspring housings.

A good plastic mainspring housing is no big deal unless you've simply got an aversion to plastic parts. If they're made good materials, and are within spec, they should be good to go for the life of the pistol...and beyond. I've never seen one break, and have heard of only a few.

Most of the ones that do fail have the cap pin located too low and take the brunt of the spring's force before, or just as the hammer hits the slide. Those are easy to spot before buying. Lower the hammer and check to see if it has some loose play in it or if it's in firm contact with the slide by tension from the mainspring. Note that this condition can also exist with a short strut.

Sure it's a good thing, Bill. He's tipped his hand, and he's arrogant enough to think that John C. Voter is too stupid to see it. Even his staunchest supporters are runnin' for cover.

JohnnyT,

I agree with you about obama. The only difference between mccain and obama was the velocity with they were taking us over the cliff. Obama is going at warp 6 and mccain would take us over the cliff at 55 mph.

People are more aware of what's going on now. A couple of years ago, most people thought speaker of the house was part of a home entertainment system.

The tea party is a symptom of ordinary every day Americans waking up and realizing what's happening to our country. ABC (any body but the commie) in 12!

Sorry for the off topic post - but it needed to be said.
1st, I am not going to debate internet rumor on the Presidents birth status.

2nd, what makes this country great, what I fought for and my brothers died for was the right for ALL AMERICANS to have their own opinions and beliefs, Republicans, Demorcrats, rightists, leftists etc. Yours sir is not the only opinion that is the correct one.

3rd, the "no in uniform gives a damn" comment really stings. Sir, I have been in one form of uniform or another since I was 18. Serving this great country and my community. Protecting those I disagree with, agree with, like, dislikke-doesn't matter. Thats the point, WE DO CARE. About America as a country. About protecting IT, its Citizens, its form of government, ITS VERY EXISTENCE! We as "uniform wearers" are separate from our elected gov't. Thats what makes us different from all the 3rd world countries with coups every year. The PEOPLE elect the leaders, we keep the peace and protect the country. We give a damn sir, thats why we put our lives on the line for you, even if we disagree with you. But you are under the misconception that we will dishonor our oath, country and ourselves just to placate your beliefs.

I am now done.

Well said, Sarge...and I'm with ya.

But...

I swore an oath to protect and defend the United States and its Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic...and there wasn't a line on the DD214 that nullified that oath.

From all indications, this POTUS and his administration seem to be intent on destroying the country and our way of life...including the Bill of Rights. I can't make myself believe that this is simply due to unfortunate circumstance when all signs indicate specific design. Tear it down to the ground and rebuild it the way YOU want it is one of the oldest political strategies in the book. The 1917 Russian Revolution is an example. Pol Pot...Mao Tse Tung...and Fidel Castro...right here in our own neighborhood have all set the precedent.

I totally respect what Sarge is sayin', but I MUST totally agree with you John. This European style of Socialism that we are slippin' into is not what we veterans and our families fought to preserve. I want my kids and grandkids to grow up in the same WONDERFUL America that I was privileged to live in. I don't see that happening and it REALLY pisses me off........

I have to come back to say this.

I agree that you have the right to disagree. That is the fundamental nature of our political system. But we have elections to remove those whom we disapprove of. The sitting President was duly elected by popular vote, not by force.. By how and what this country stands for and by since its creation. If the majority of Americans are dissatisfied with him or the party he represents then in the next election you have the right as citizens to rectify the situation with an orderly transition of power. If you suggest armed revolt you will be, in my opinion, violiating the Constitution of the United States of America. I think my time is done here. Peace be with you all.

Sarge...Lest I be misunderstood...let me offer this:

When Bill Clinton dallied with Miss Monica in late-night Oval Office sessions...his supporters rallied 'round the rascal and said that it was a private matter...and that it shouldn't be any of our concern.

I begged to differ. Had they gotten a room and carried on their little tryst, I would have agreed that it was a matter between him and his wife to discuss.

But...He didn't do that. He did it in the Oval Office. He failed to respect that office. It wasn't his White House and it wasn't his office. It was...and is...the property of every American in the country. His actions were unacceptable. Conduct unbecoming and officer and a gentleman if you will.

So, while I have the greatest respect for the Office of the President...sometimes I have none at all for the man who occupies that office...and I reserve the right to refer to him as a clown or an imbecile...or as a lying, underhanded son of a bitch if he earns that.

Sarge - the facts regarding this obama-Punk being an Ineligible Usurper are Not just internet rumors, they are cold-hard facts! Please do some research Sarge, this sob is a criminal and he is Not eligible for office.

This worthless-scumbag-criminal-obama, could Not even pass a security clearence to clean toilets at the White House, but yet he's protected on a daily basis by Men in Uniform that Took an Oath to Protect and Defend the United States and it's Constitution from ALL Enemies, Foreign and Domestic - and yet these Men in Uniform Protect him and they'd gladly put a bullet through a Patriots head in order to protect this Ineligible Usurper.

That's why I say no-one in Uniform gives a damn, because if they did, they'd Arrest this Ineligible-Maggot and drag it out of the oval office in Handcuffs and hold a "Legal Court" on the scumbag right there on the White House Lawn! And then they'd Arrest the other Tyrants for their Rapes against The America Citizens and The Constitution.

For what it's worth Sarge, I haven't lost respect for the ground soldiers and I have an enormous amount of respect for a certain Sheriff in Texas and a handful of Sworn Officers that's scattered across America - but other than them, the rest of 'em Don't impress me at all.
