Shooting Illustrated has some nice pics of 34 iterations:
Check out the other 33 on their website.
As much as I appreciate the design and the old school flavor of the 1911, I’m still bitter that my Springfield Loaded pitted with rust simply because I didn’t treat it like it was something special and keep it in a temp/humidity controlled environment and clean/oil it. I don’t have the time or want, to worry about babying firearms. It takes out of my potato chip eating, and distracts me from memorizing the great lines in all 5 seasons of the wire while I get fat, never leave the house, and wonder why I am so alone.
I was kind of disappointed to not see the Double Barrel 1911 in the mix… but I suppose the 1911 purists are not down with it. Some of the others that are in the 34 pics probably raised a few eyebrows as well I imagine.
Thoughts? Are 1911s #1 on your list of all time favorite handguns?
