I’m surprised

That this post from Publicola hasn’t generated a lot more hate mail. See, he basically kicks around one of the sacred cows of handgunning, the venerable and venerated 1911A1.

Honestly, I agree with him, especially the stuff about the grip safety. The grip safety makes sense on a pocket pistol like the 1903 Colt; but not on the full sized holster baby that is the 1911.

I’ve only owned one 1911, and I sold it for a (shudder) Ruger GP100.
