    My fiancé 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.

    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.

    I just got my first 1911 last august and
    As long as i have been around different types of firearms in a professional setting i have no clue why i wasnt turned on to the 1911 before. I just decided one day that i wanted one and now its my favorite gun.

    i got turned onto them over twenty five years ago, by a gun dealer friend of mine who is a 1911 enthusiast since that's what he used when he was in the Marine Corps. i am glad to this day he steered me in that direction. i have owned many different ones over the years and will probably always own one until my death! i am a better shot with other pistols i own, but the 1911's are my favorite. now as i get older and the more i have learned about them, i want more than just one. one that i really want, just for a fun target shooting 1911, is one chambered in 38 Super.
