..the 1911 .45 ACP pistol was adopted as the official sidearm of the U.S. Army.
I'm at GUNSITE this week in a special 1911 class in honor of that anniversary. We'll be filming lots of stuff for DRTV, both the special presentations that are part of this superb class and some of my own observations on the 1911.
FWIW, I'm shooting my ancient Wilson Master Class Colt I used for years and years in USPSA and IDPA, and yesterday on the shooting range I remembered what an excellent gun it really is.
More when I get a chance!
