    Please reword this, Katie.

    You would think TFB would know better than to write it “Seal.”

    • CommonSense23

      Um who really cares that much.

      • JB000

        I would hope a gun website would care that much. But I guess some people have lower standards. You probably don’t mind writing it Nasa either.

      • just about anyone who has any knowledge of the military, and recognizes that SEAL is an acronym, and should be all-capitals.

        • CommonSense23

          I can text about 20 active team guys and I guranteee you not one of them will care about making sure its written out in all caps.

          • I imagine you’re right. If it gets people that bent out of shape they need to let Ruger know not the messenger.

          • *makes jerking motion* Bully for you. It’s still a sign of respect, whether or not the members care.

          • Klaus Von Schmitto

            Thank you Teddy Roosevelt.

        • Klaus Von Schmitto

          oui oui monsieur.

      • Klaus Von Schmitto

        Absolutely no one who isn’t kind of sweet on guys in berets.

    • Geez man you missed the point that Ruger wrote that sentence. Probably the person who wrote it isn’t familiar with the military terms. I don’t edit what a company says.

      • JB000

        Sorry, my mistake. Although you should make it clear when something is a quote. I wasn’t comparing your text with the tiny text in the image on my phone. Ruger should really know better.

  • Vitsaus

    I think the guys that did the Bin-Laden raid were carry almost this exact 1911 as their side arm.

  • Edeco

    That high polish dust cover is neat. Should have made a special chevron shaped trigger to match the grips and serrations.
