Simple question for y’all fellow addicts! What is it that you like so much about the 1911 platform? I drool at some of the newer pistol designs but no matter how much they spark my interest, I always end up with another 1911 in the stable. Personally I find the history of the 1911 fascinating. I’m blown away that a design over 100 years old is still so popular and widely used. There are other pistols that feel as good in my large mitts, but there’s a comfort in knowing that you’re holding a piece of history that helped us stay back-to-back world war champions! Your reasoning?!
