I have a lot of experience on the Colt 1911. My name here is 1911 although I know the early S&W better. ;)

This gun is part of our beloved American history. We must honor it for what it accomplished.

The 1911 was issued in 1911. It proved to be a good weapon in the battlefields in WW1. It was designed by John Browning as a reliable semi-auto for hard conditions. It helped to win WW1 as well as WW2. Guys carried them in Vietnam.

My guns were later, but I love and respect the history. It's why I own a few of them.
