    Me too. And when I was in Ogden Utah for the Browning Collectors Assn conference a few years back, I got to handle JMB's original hand made prototype. Absolutely amazing. Had to wear white cotton gloves. The tool marks are quite evident, for a lot of the finishing work on the slide and frame he just used a file. The notches either side of the slide were just hacksaw cuts.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.
