    Happy Anniversary Browning .45 Automatic Pistol

    On March 29th, 1911 the Browning designed .45 Automatic Pistol was adopted as the official sidearm of the United States Army, and the rest as they say is history. This coming Tuesday marks the 100th anniversary of the 1911 pistol, and more manufacturers are cranking out 1911s today than ever before.

    When it came to the development of semi-automatic and full-automatic firearms, Browning was in a league all by himself. The 1911 was of course just one of his legendary designs. We are all so lucky he was an American.

    Happy 100th Anniversary on your 1911 Big John, and Thank-You.

    I have been blessed by many things and this year, and I am thankful, but I had the opportunity to purchase an ED Brown custom, Massad Ayoob signature 1911. This not only a great gun but it will be a piece of history. I have shot about 300 rds through it and will continue to shoot it on a regular basis...I will not seal it up in a case for show.
