Tuna And Its Effect On The 1911 Handgun

Wait… what?

LOL.  First of all Tuna is a salt water fish, so if you ever were to swim with tuna i’d be more concerned about the effect of the salt water on the delicate 1911.   I have first hand experience with the the effects even sweat can have on a 1911 if you’re not anal about cleaning it… you get pitting.

Unless were are talking about tuna that some how are on land… which in that case we are all screwed.  Your 1911 will definitely be disrespected by some big tuna.

Yet another reason to get a Glock.  :P

  1. Well? Will tuna hurt my 1911 or not?

      Prolonged exposure to tuna will hurt your 1911.

      1. I disagree. I find that the fish oil in tuna is an excellent lubricant and I have experienced zero malfunctions with all brands of factory ammo while using tuna with my 1911.

  2. Here’s my experience with buying one: I purchased an antique 1911 from the 1920s. As I was thumbing cartridges into my magazine, I wondered…. how many rounds can it take until the parts wear out? Long story short, its well oiled and in a case in my closet now, and I realized I have a weakness for antique firearms.

  3. OK, first off: you find yourself in the ocean, 20 foot wave, I’m assuming off the coast of South Africa, coming up against a full grown 800 pound tuna with his 20 or 30 friends, you lose that battle, you lose that battle 9 times out of 10. And guess what, you’ve wandered into our school of tuna and we now have a taste of lion. We’ve talked to ourselves. We’ve communicated and said ‘You know what, lion tastes good, let’s go get some more lion’. We’ve developed a system to establish a beach-head and aggressively hunt you and your family and we will corner your pride, your children, your offspring.

      LOL great quote. I love that movie.

  4. “Yet another reason to get a Glock. :P ” – NEVER!… Ill buy a 1911 made in USA long before I buy some Austrian made trash that nutnfancy slobbers over all the time.

    glocks are used by inexperienced cops, wannabe assassins, and wannabe thugs.
    1911s are used by experienced cops, USMC (to this day), and was designed by the best American gun designer of our brief existence. *nuff said*

    1. First off, the 1911s of today and the original 1911 of JMB are a little different. Those rattle traps they carried in WW2 would be scoffed at now. But thats what made it so great, like the AK it was powerful and worked, cause it was simple and loose. Modern 1911s are finicky and prone to rust and stuff.

      Also, way to go profiling Glock users, this is why we cant have nice things. It’s the same as the Brady Campaign (and there thing about gangsters use the Stinger Pen gun, it should be illegal).

        Simple and loose? Wat. You need three hands to take it apart, and good ones dont rattle. Complicated and tight is best.

        And it’s not profiling if it’s true. Those are the main buyers of Glocks and Glock related products. Also operators. And people with a lack of taste. And Gordon freeman. Brady campaign does not apply.

      At least the plastic is resistant to slobber. Not that I’m a Glock fan, I’m just saying.

        A glock is more useful as a spork than a handgun lol.

    its true that glocks are common among the three types I previously mentioned… Its just a general observation nothing more.

    I love my 1911s and I love my polymer pistols (XD and XDm) but glocks however are not my thing… I know a lot of people that swear by glocks (more power to them)

    But I see your point.

    Sorry, you’re going about it all wrong. More firepower is in order!

    My shotgun with slugs will make sushi of any tuna (both the land and sea varieties).

    1. My shotgun with slugs will make sushi of any tuna

      No, it’ll just put holes in them and make them dead. It takes a skilled chef to make sushi.

    Too much mercury.

    1. I was reading about mercury in fish not too long ago. You gotta get the cheaper, chunk light tuna – the more expensive Albacore has three times as much.

    Tuna makes my guns smell funny. Stick to salmon.
