The 1911 carries concealed very well. It has aftermarket parts support that is only rivaled by a small block Chevy. The 1911 style pistol has a combat heritage that no other production pistol can match.
Some say a 1911 is overpriced. Others say a 1911 is unreliable. Most young shooters call it an obsolete dinosaur. I did once as well. Then I shot John Moses' creation. I was pleased, very pleased. Years later, I am not surprised that many modern marvels of ordnance have left my possession to find other homes, their place being filled by yet another example of a handgun design almost a century old.
