    For gun work I like Torques. I've never had a torque strip out on me.....Yet. Well, knock on wood. I guess it can happen with anything. But I've had hex heads strip. Small scope screws are especially aggravating. I will no longer buy mounts with hex head screws. I want torques. I do need a torque screwdriver though, because I HAVE had my Ham Fisted moments. I'm a piss poor Torque Guesser.

    Im thinking its about screw guns now.

    CZ makes a dammed fine pistol.  Given the price point and what you get, a couple phillips screws are just fine.

    I'd rather talk about screws.  While I've had a bad gun, never had a bad screw.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    It's about guns and screws... The more I look at this gun, the more I think, Screw cpj.

    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain

    Better phillips than flatheads - 1911 not withstanding!
    Flatheads allow you to tighten or remove the grip screws with a knife blade or even a cartridge rim, if the groove/rim is appropriately sized (that's why JMB specified such screws on his 1911 designs). 

    Yep.  The Torx heads on my Springfields all went AWAY, FAAAAAAR AWAY, never to return.  They're at the bottom of the same lake the FLGR's went into.

    Even when they're bad they're good.

    I can now detail strip my Springfield and my Colt using only the firearm parts itself if I so desire. And use an empty .45 ACP case as a recoil spring plug.
