Why should you carry a 1911? Narrow profile with excellent stopping power. Superb safety features that are easy to manipulate yet confusing to anybody who might get control of your weapon. Soft-shooting comfort, accurate, and easy to control, especially in 9mm. A lifetime of durability. For these reasons and more, the 1911 is still an excellent choice for an every day carry gun, and in this episode, Bill and Mas take an in-depth look at the benefits of the pistol that defined America’s military for the greater part of the 20th century.
