None taken, Andy.
I guess it's based on the 1911, but only one or two parts are interchangeable.
It's like saying a propane grill is based on a charcoal grill.
The charcoal grill might have been the inspiration, but that's where it ends

Aren't they fascinating? We see them on our way to visit Baby Bro in Mpls.

They're great...unless they're near a residential area. Those motors have this annoying "hmmmm" that is audible if you are too close! Thank goodness there aren't any near us. I much prefer the sound of a solar array.

Reminds of the story of a guy with an oil pump in his backyard. He was asked if the noise from the pump bothered him and he said, "Nope, that's the sound of money."

Big controversy on wind turbines in my town. Nobody wants them except the farmers whose land they would be going on. Lots of town meeting and such. They were just approved with a compromise on setback from adjoining property lines. They are supposed to be quite annoying when the sun hits them a certain way and they cast flickering light through your windows, too. There's a term for it.

They're not great for migrating birds, either.

That, too.
I'm telling you, between the fracking, the sewer and the wind turbines our elected officials will be lucky to be around after their terms are done. It's been one thing after another for the past year.
