It's no fluke that the 1911 style of handgun is still popular more than 100 yrs after its inception. Designed by firearms design genius John Moses Browning, the 1911 was ground breaking in its capabilities: it was accurate, reliable, durable, and hit hard in its .45 ACP chambering. It quickly acquired a loyal following as it fought in both World Wars, Korea, and even Vietnam with distinction. And that reputation with these returned servicemen continued on into their civilian lives when they sought to acquire their own 1911s. In this video however, I concentrate on the Philosophy of Use or POU for the type and address the design's capabilities when evaluated for role. POUs including the Go to War Gun (GTWG), Home Defense, Competition and Recreation, Concealed Carry, and "Addiction" handgun are discussed in detail with pros and cons identified. Steel framed 1911s predominate the market but are heavy for their limited magazine capacity (single stack versions). But for absolute durability, quicker shot recovery, less fatigue in extended shooting, and gunsmithing capes, the steel framed versions remain popular. Depending on POU, they are appropriated and preferred. AS a GTWG, I prefer that aluminum or Scandium framed 1911s (and in the other POUs as well). Training with the type is mandatory and the 1911 with its manual safety offers some chances for mistakes when under stress. Size and weight and firepower considerations for the 1911 are addressed. These subject matter generally covers the first three Talking Points (TPs) of a Nutnfancy tabletop handgun review and will save me time as a referenceable, foundational video. Some consider the 1911 to be John Browning's greatest design. When taken into context of the historically significant M1919 and M1917 .30 cal and M2 .50 cal machine guns and the BAR, that of course is debatable. But the fact that the 1911 even against simpler, more modern designs is still soldiering on with great effect is a testament to its design excellence.//////////////////////// Music licensed from TNPr Dudio at www.youtube.com/eldudio
