"Triggers" weapons that changed the world
 
My fiancÚ recorded this show for me because she figured I'd want to see it since it featured the m1911. I watched it tonight and the guy that hosts the show was an army ranger and used the beretta throughout his tours and years of service. He claimed to not have very much experience with the 1911 style pistol, but he seemed to like it more than his beretta. By the end of the show he claimed to be dedicated to the 1911/.45acp combination with it's "stopping power" and "tight, smooth" action. Not to mention its accuracy.

The 1911 makes believers out of people everyday :-)

Its a good show for the most part. The host Will, also was in another show for the military channel called Special OPS Mission. Pretty cool little series. It's available on Netflix right now.

there is a reason the 1911 has lasted for over 100 years, it's timeless and proven. they look and function as well now, as they did when first introduced. plus, they are probably copied more than any other pistol ever made. imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Good ol' Wil Willis / Wiskey Wiskey lol I like him, I think he does good on Triggers and I thought he was pretty good on Special Ops too. Too bad Military Channel didn't re-new a deal with it, kinda wish I had Netflix so I could watch them again now lol. One of my favorite episodes was the winter mountain mission and the warhead mission with the quad cons. Sim training was always pretty fun until your fire team gets ambushed, then it sucks lol

Great show and I love the 1911 episode. Thought it was hilarious when the dude tries to challenge it with the Luger.
