Colt 1911 Turns 100!

I am big on the 2nd Amendment.  Having the right to keep and bear arms is a crucial part of our republic.  It’s scary, though, to think that the last time the 2nd Amendment faced a test before the Supreme Court (McDonald v. City of Chicago, 2010) the vote was a close shave 5-4 vote in the affirmative.  That is too close for comfort.  One of the most commercially successful firearms brands ever is Colt.  The 1911A1 was adopted by the U.S. Army and remained the sidearm of choice for over 70 years.  As this iconic piece of firearm perfection celebrates a century this year, it’s important to remember just how crucial it is for you and I to be able to own this or any firearm we choose.   Click here for great article on the 1911A1 from Human Events!
