Welcome from someone who has helped my ortho doc fund an addition to his office.   (Three knees and two hips waiting in the wings) ::)

I use the Crimson Trace sight, and have found that different loads hit the target in different places.  If I set the sight using 115 grain ammo, they hit dead center in the red dot at 10 yards.  If I switch to 147 grain ammo without adjusting the red dot, it always shoots low.  P vs +P also makes a difference.

sorry about the long winded post. 
tdbru

Long winded is not a problem at all.  Please just break it up into coherent paragraphs for easier reading.

Welcome tdbru.  I had to pass up trying to read your OP, as my old eyes just couldn't sort it all out.  Breaking a long post into paragraphs would make it so much easier to read.

Please.  Thanks.

I believe hard chroming of that piece was a
Gen 2 mod.

As was stated earlier.   ;)

I expect it's stainless, so no hardening available, unfortunately. Would be possible to do it in Titanium, or maybe a really deep Type III Hard Anodizing in Aluminum.

It attracts a magnet, which stainless does not.  It's supposedly chrome plated for surface hardness steel, which I read somewhere was one of the improvements from Gen 1

There's one way to prove or disprove the chrome plating.  Put a drop of muriatic acid on it.  It will dissolve the chrome.

The problem in Georgia is that we're getting too many damned Yankees moving in, and bringing their liberal politics with them.  As a result, the Georgia General Assembly is becoming afraid to do much in the way of pro-gun legislation; but Georgia Carry.org keeps on pressing them.

And then there's Kennesaw, GA, an Atlanta suburb and not in Harris County:

In Kennesaw, Georgia, local law says that "every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm."

Good thinking folks here in Georgia!

They could learn a lesson from one of our Georgia County Sheriffs.

Yes, this is a real sign.

Here's another article from a finance website.

This one does get it right about Remington being the oldest in the US.

CitiBank Credit Cards (including the Costo variant) is another one to boycott, since CitiBank is putting restrictions on companies that sell guns.

Perhaps this is a really stupid question, but what is the purpose of adding that large extension to an easily concealable pistol?

Funflyer, My Buckmark is box stock, too.  It's just too pretty out of the box to modify.

I only have CCI ammo of various loads lately; but it has shot other brands, including subsonic, just fine in the past.
