  • Death of the 1911?

    Ha! Ha! I don't see that happening. Seems writers come up with this catch line ever so often. Some say the design of a 1911 is poor because you have less rounds. I say only if you are going to miss a lot or your taking on a whole gang of thugs. Most hand gun fights are settled within a couple of shots. This article is a good read that you might enjoy from the Outdoor hub.

    The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his/her rifle.

    I read the article and he makes some good arguments but the 1911 isn't going anywhere

      If the 1911 is out dated, why are there more manufactures building them today then at anytime in the past?

      He needed something to fill space.

        Well, I think it's safe to say the 1911 will outlive most of us, anyway,

          Radial tires will go out of style before the 1911.

            John Browning and his 1911 pistol is to the gun industry what the internal combustion engine and the Model T has been to the Automotive industry. Everything after has been based, influenced or designed because of it.
            Why do I carry? Somebody else will pick the day I need my gun, not me.
