Default Good reading 1911 platform

While waiting for my RGN call, I've been searching around for info across the web. Found this link through https://forum.m1911.org/forum.php which is a great site by itself, with good expert advice.
A series of 1911 related articles by John Travis, AKA '1911 tuner'.
John is not too active much on forums these days, but here is a good compilation of his "teaching moments" for leisure reading.

Just finished reading Johns 4 pages. great help for a newbie like me. old salts here know most of this already.
Many of the articles follow on the others, so any one following should read the 4 pages backwards !

Yes, you can hear the dogs in the background of his detail strip video.
He refers to his home as "castle dog hair" LOL. Sounds like an old school gunny sarge.
I like it!
