Default 1911

Just sold my 1911. Great gun, fired beautifully. Just wasn't huge on the look. I'm more of a tactical hand gun guy. Maybe ill get another one later but for now I love my tactical guns.

The 1911 isn't tacticool? I like my bare bones 1911 over something that needs lasers and flashlights to make its appearance any better. Just my opinion.

Where is Cane when you need him to lay the smack down from the hand of the Colt gods for this blasphemy?

Personally i'm not a fan of the tacticool handguns, i'd rather carry a hangun whose design has 100 years of proven "badazzery"

How is a 1911 not tactical enough?
How many specialist units use 1911s? How many are actively trying to?
The original GI 1911 was the original tactical pistol for US forces.

I suppose none of the following are tactical enough:

http://www.armscorusa.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11&It emid=24

Sorry, I find comments like these baffling. I believe that your thinking of "tacticool"

That's too bad. Personally, i think the 1911 is downright beautiful in pretty much any configuration
