Great article. Thanks for posting it JD. The 1911 will be the next sidearm I buy. I have been wanting one since my step son bought a Springfield TRP. It is a natural shooter which from what I gather from everyone who has one is the norm.

My favorite line from the article is:

The 1911 pistol is testimony to John Browning’s engineering genius, written in steel.

I remember a quote from somewhere, where a woman asked a LEO why he carried a .45. His response was "Because they don't make a 46." Not sure if it's true or not, but it captures the essence of it for me.
