M1911 Centennial Today

The venerable M1911 is 100 years old today! Or to be precise, it was formally adopted by the Army on March 29, 1911, thus gaining its designation, M1911.

A century later, with some modifications, the same basic design is still carried by some U.S. Military special operations teams, and is a highly popular choice for concealed and open carry by private individuals, myself included.

Thank you and congratulations, John Moses Browning.
